Well, this is a new side of Lorde!
The 18-year-old appears to engage in a super sexy affair with a married man in the new video for Disclosure's "Magnets" video... before things go way south. Watch the sultry, violent new video in the player below.
"Let's embrace the point of no return," Lorde croons on the seductive track, while showing off some of those signature dance moves that we fell in love with on "Yellow Flicker Beat" last year.
Turns out, the singer is actually showing off her acting chops as a hitwoman – enacting revenge on an unfaithful lover.
one of my life goals has always been "to one day play a hitgirl who pretends to seduce then burns alive douchey boyfriends"— Lorde (@lordemusic) September 29, 2015
the most important part of the video is when you see her black eye as she turns away at the window.. hope it all makes sense from that point— Lorde (@lordemusic) September 29, 2015
In real life, Lorde is in a long-term relationship with boyfriend James Lowe, 26. The pair celebrated their two-year anniversary in April, and the singer marked the milestone with a sweet Instagram post. "Two years, and sandstorms, and the stars haven't left my eyes," she captioned a photo of the couple.
Lorde broke onto the global music scene with her hit debut single, "Royals," in 2013. Just last year, the GRAMMY-winning track was even spoofed by Weird Al -- an honor considered by many artists as a true sign of success. See Al's take on the song in the video below.
