The world is buzzing about Grammy award winning singer Lorde because of her incredibly epic new "Green Light" music video and single. The song is a bit of a departure for Lorde, in terms of sound, and will totally put you in the mood to dance. And with lyrics like, "You said that you would always be in love, but you're not in love no more" and "I can't let go," her new single likely has many fans wondering if Lorde is currently dating anyone. Like, who exactly is she referring to? Who is it that Lorde "can't let go" of, or is she even talking about someone in specific? You know what they say, curiosity killed the cat... and right now color me curious about Lorde!

Back in January 2016 it was reported by the New Zealand Herald that Lorde and long-time boyfriend James Lowe had split.The couple didn't officially confirm the breakup, but they did stop posting photos of each other to social media, which — these days — is pretty much as as big of a confirmation of a split as one can make. (A rep for Lorde could not be reached for comment on the breakup at the time of publication.) Lorde is notoriously private about her romantic life, though. So, although it's not totally clear when or why they broke up, one thing's for sure — Lorde's Insta feed suggests she and Lowe haven't been together in a while.

There have been a few random rumors about Lorde's romantic life, including the suggestion she was getting close to Justin Warren, a promotions director for Universal Music. But Warren quickly dismissed the rumors, according to J-14, and let's be honest, the two work together so it makes sense that they were spotted together. Just because two people are seen in each other's company doesn't mean they're dating!

It doesn't seem that Lorde is currently with anyone. There certainly doesn't appear to be a person who is showing up frequently in Lorde's Insta feed. I mean, besides Taylor Swift.

When it comes down to it, whether Lorde is single and whether "Green Light" is about anyone or not, one thing is for sure: The song is catchy AF and will surely be a big hit for her.
