LORDE – Team


Team” is a song by New Zealand recording artist Lorde, taken from her debut studio album Pure Heroine (2013). The song was released on 13 September 2013 as the album’s third single internationally by Universal Music Group, and the second in the United States by Lava and Republic Records.

The track was written by Lorde and Joel Little and produced by Little. “Team” combines genres from poprockEDM and electrohop. Lyrically, the track is a “tribute to her friends and country”.

“Team” was generally well-received by most contemporary critics, who praised its musical style, lyrical content and Lorde‘s vocal delivery on the track. The single garnered moderate successes on charts worldwide, peaking at number 18 on the US Billboard Hot 100chart.

It was more successful in Oceania, peaking at number 19 in Australia and debuting and peaking number 3 in New Zealand. Due to its success in the continent, “Team” was certified platinum by both the ARIA and RMNZ.

A music video for the song was directed Young Replicant and was released on Lorde‘s Vevo channel on 3 December 2013. Upon its release, the clip crashed Vevo’s channel due to a large amount of viewers. To promote “Team” and Pure Heroine, Lorde performed the song on several occasions, including on Late Show with David Letterman and at the ARIA Music Awards of 2013.
