Kiwi teenage singer Lorde has made Kiwi music history by jumping over Miley Cyrus to hit number one on the US Billboard charts.
The 16-year-old’s debut smash Royals had been sitting at number three on the Top 100 chart.
It jumped past Katy Perry’s Roar and Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball to hit the number one spot during the holidays.
The achievement makes Lorde the youngest solo artist to top the Hot 100 since 1987, when Tiffany claimed the top spot when she was 16 years and one month old.
Lorde turns 17 on November 16 and is now the only New Zealand artist to hit the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 list.
