2016 was a year riddled with instances of drunkenly screaming along to tracks from Rihanna's ANTI, an album tailor-made to soundtrack every failed relationship and jilted lover that caused you stress in the wee hours of the night. And as it happens, we were far from the only ones who felt this way. Lorde has just shared a new song titled "Liability" off her highly-anticipated sophomore effort Melodrama, and it was inspired by that precise activity. Listen to it below.

Lorde premiered the track on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe, wherein she revealed the following on the track's genesis:

"I was in this cab alone listening to “Higher” by Rihanna because ANTI had just come out. And I had a little cry and I was just like, “It’s always going to be this way, at some point with everyone it’s going to be this way.” But the song kind of ended up turning into a bit of a protective talismans for me. I was like, you know what, I’m always gonna have myself so I have to really nurture this relationship and feel good about hanging out with myself and loving myself."

So there, Lorde really is just like us. Stay tuned for Melodrama to drop on June 16. Watch the video for the first single "Green Light" below.

In other music news, Nicki Minaj has dropped not one, not two, but THREE new tracks, including a response to Remy Ma. Listen to them all right here.
