Everything you need to know about Solar Power singer Lorde's weight loss journey & diet plan. Take a glance at her before and after transformation.
It's worth noting that Lorde is one of the youngest singers to ever achieve such rapid success, yet she's still smashing it on stage and growing in stardom.
Her first single, Royals, was such a huge phenomenon that it went over almost instantly and turned into the reason fans loved her and were eager to listen more from her. Luckily for us, she graciously took the plea and has gone on to become one of the most renowned pop stars of all time with her fairly odd acts and an impressive stage persona.
She's gone so far as to be invited to a slew of talk shows and concerts around the world. It's safe to say that she's grown as near to a legend as any living person can get.
Talking of her incredible success professionally, Lorde is currently trending for her latest track Solar Power, which has also invited curiosity surrounding her physique. Did she undergo weight loss? Without further ado, let's find out.

It's been four years since Lorde's 2017 album Melodrama was released, and despite a little glitch, the pop star has resurfaced with the bold, sunny single Solar Power.
It's the first song from Lorde's latest album, Solar Power, which she announced in a mail to fans. It's complemented with a music video she co-directed alongside Joel Kefali, in which she features prominently in bright yellow, encircled by disciples costumed in earth tones, spread on a beach.
As the latest track dropped, fans couldn't help but notice Lorde's physique which looks noticeably slimmer from her past appearances. So, has she actually undergone weight loss?

While there's no doubt Lorde has indeed dropped pounds, it seems quite normal and it's not something she actively pursued. Weight loss and weight gain over a certain period of time are regarded as common weight fluctuations. Lorde's physique is no different in this regard.
This is not the first time the singer has either gained or lost weight. Over the course of the last 8 years, we can often notice her slimming down or gaining pounds. This time it appears to be the former.
Lorde has never addressed fans' curiosity surrounding her physique, nor has she opened up about her diet plan and fitness routine. Therefore, her weight loss endeavors have remained a mystery and pretty much anybody's guess at this point.
Meanwhile, the 24-year-old is currently making rounds on social media for her latest melodious track titled Solar Power. Interestingly, the music was accidentally uploaded to streaming sites ahead of time, however, it was quickly removed and re-posted on official channels later.

While no launch date has been set, the title tune features recognizable collaborators — Jack Antonoff serves as co-writer and co-producer — as well as a pair of supporting performers — Phoebe Bridgers and Clairo — whose reputations have skyrocketed since Lorde's previous album in 2017.
Solar Power embraces beach, saltwater, and "a fresh state of mind" instead of Melodrama's wild, love-drunk metropolitan fantasy.
Lorde appears to be writing to us from New Zealand's January sunshine, the array of a celebration that feels either age behind — or beyond — of the dreary shutdown we've been suffering through, for viewers coming in during the closing days of the coronavirus pandemic.
Swept off the feet by the song's twitchy guitar and Lorde's deft voice delivering bright affirmations, it's tough not to join in when she asks, "Are you coming, my baby?"
Lorde Previously Revealed She was Terribly Body-Shamed
Lorde rose to popularity at the age of 16 in 2013 with the launch of her hit track Royals, and she now admits the journey wasn't ideal. People started making fun of her appearance, as per the singer.
Speaking with NME, Lorde said:
It rocked my foundations and could have f—ed me, you know? I remember being made aware of my looks and my body in a way that I had never been.
Lorde claims that many made fun of her look in ways she had never imagined.
I remember all these kids online, I think I beat their favorite people to number one [on the music charts], and they were like, ‘F— her, she’s got really far-apart eyes.’ I remember being like, ‘Whoa! How did I get all this way without knowing I had far-apart eyes?’ Just weird s— like that.
Lorde admits she was quite startled when it transpired, but she now feels better prepared to deal with it.
If anything, I’ve slowly been getting less famous since ‘Royals’ was really big, which is totally cool for me. I suck at being famous, and that’s fine.
Lorde has been largely away from the public eye since gaining the spotlight as a teen. In 2017, she had been working on her upcoming album at the time, Melodrama, which she claimed had helped.
The New Zealand songwriter said,
I was able to return to my family and shelter against that and get to where I am now. I feel so comfortable in myself.
Clearly, body-shaming is never acceptable in any form, and it's unfortunate that Lorde had to put up with it. However, we are pleased to see that she has risen as a strengthened person as a result of it.
