It was reported that the record company is keen for the singer to collaborate with its other signings, including Diplo and The Weeknd, and write songs for other artists.

Songs Music Publishing president Ron Perry told Billboard: "She's going to be a really big songwriter outside of Lorde. She's going to have a lot of big songs out there as Ella (Yellich O'Connor), she's a once-in-a-generation type artist."

'Royals' has been nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance at the 56th annual Grammy Awards.
