New Zealand's own Lorde is already worldwide famous and now one of her songs will be featured in the NBA 2K15 soundtrack.

2K Sports announced a few weeks ago that Pharrell Williams curated the soundtrack for NBA 2K15 this year. The man decided to put Lorde's song "Team" into the soundtrack. This means millions of gamers will be able to hear Lorde which is good for Kiwi music in general.
