George Michael Estate Gives Lorde It's Blessing Over Song Similarity


With the release of Lorde’s new song, “Solar Power” many fans said the song is similar to George Michael’s “Freedom ‘90," prompting his estate to release a statement.

“We are aware that many people are making a connection between Freedom ’90 by George Michael and Solar Power by Lorde which George would have been flattered to hear,” the statement reads. “So on behalf of one great artist to a fellow artist, we wish her every success with the single.” 

During a recent interview, Lorde stated ‘Solar Power’ was similar to Primal Scream’s “Loaded,” which she said she had never heard before, however, before recording the song she spoke to Bobby [Gillespie] about the song, “he was like, “You know, these things happen; you caught a vibe that we caught years ago. And he gave us his blessing,” said Lorde.
