By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Everyone is talking about singer Lorde and her chart-topping song "Royals." That includes Kanye West. The 16-year-old singer shares with Rolling Stone that she met the producer/rapper in London when they were both to appear on the talk show "Later. . . With Jools Holland."

"He said he liked the messages [in my songs], which was cool," the New Zealand singer says. "I was saying to myself, 'Keep cool. This is normal.'" Lorde added that Ye was very friendly,"He's a really mellow dude – super relaxed" and it took everything in her not to groupie out.

She adds, "He had this big old grill, and I wanted to touch it, but I restrained myself." Lorde has been heating up the music charts. According to Billboard, "Royals" has surpassed 2 million downloads and is the #1 song in the country this week.

The singer covers Billboard magazine and is being dubbed "The New Queen Of Alternative."

Could a Kanye and Lorde collabo be next?
