New Zealand pop star Lorde wants to pull her hit single “Royals” from the radio over fears fans will tire of her too quickly.

The singer scored a massive international hit with her debut track in 2013 and it won two Grammy Awards, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, last month.

The song is still a favorite on the airwaves, but Lorde wishes she could have it removed from radio stations’ playlists so fans can have a break from her before she releases new material.

She tells V Magazine, “I want to let people stop hearing Lorde on the radio all the time, because it’s kind of crazy at the moment. I’d like to give people a little bit of breathing room before I unleash something different.”
