So, should fans expect that Lorde may turn her pain into a new album soon?

Well hey, if there's any silver lining to the artist's heartbreak, it would definitely be giving her fans some tracks to help us deal with our own struggles.

Who else has Lorde dated?

Lorde used to date photographer James Lowe. They met when she was 16 and he was 24. Her mom approved the relationship, saying "I didn't say, 'Yeah, sure, go date a 24-year-old.' But her dad and I met James and we liked him. When Ella was much younger, her first boyfriend was older — four years or something." Lorde and James broke up in 2015. Many think "Green Light" from "Melodrama" was actually written about their breakup.

In an interview, Lorde said, "The song is actually about a heartbreak. And it's not something that I really am used to writing about. It took me a while to be able to figure out how to write about that. It was my first major heartbreak."
