Lorde explodes back into the limelight with ‘Homemade Dynamite’
After having spent the better part of a year and a half working on her latest album Melodrama, Lorde has looked to continue her hot streak in music. After having teased the release of the remix to “Homemade Dynamite” yesterday, Lorde officially released the song on Twitter today.
The song features 19-year-old singer Khalid, who has seen a rise in work after the release of his single “Location” and album, American Dream, Top Dawg Entertainment’s SZA, whose album Ctrl has also seen critical acclaim and Post Malone, who’s slated to release a new single tonight featuring the ever-popular 21 Savage.
The lack of a new verse from Lorde doesn’t take away from the overall feel of the song. The addition of Khalid, SZA and Post Malone are enough to rejuvenate the song enough to differentiate it from the original.
Recently, Lorde has been keeping busy with her music. Her song “Supercut” will be featured in the upcoming soccer video game FIFA 18. She also recently performed the original version of “Homemade Dynamite” at the VMAs and was criticized for her dancing by some.
“I just danced. I just danced! And I danced with full fucking joy,” she recently told Marc Maron on his podcast “WTF.”
