I'm kind of over gettin' told to throw my hands up in the air
So there

from Lorde – Team Lyrics on Rap Genius


As confirmed in a Billboard interview, this is Lorde’s response to modern pop, which is saturated with singers telling listeners and partygoers to throw their hands in the air. This line is teenage rebellion on a musical level. She’s flaunting the musical opinions she developed as she matured.

She is probably not a big fan of Flo Rida’s “In the Ayer”

Funny enough, this song’s drums are some of the heaviest in Lorde’s catalog, but they’re not too danceable.
