Lorde trolled for wrong translation in ‘Mood Ring’ teaser chart: ‘Stop using Google translate’
A few fans noticed that Lorde's mood ring chart that came in different languages had a translation issue in Spanish
Lorde’s third studio album ‘Solar Power’ has been keeping her loyal fans on toes and with two songs already getting the love from the Internet, it now seems the New Zealand native is planning to drop the third single from her much-awaited full-length record. The ‘Royals’ hitmaker, who never announces new projects on social media, stuck to her routine and teased the new single on her official website.
Fans and followers quickly noticed the updates on the 24-year-old singer’s website as a colorful mood ring chart welcomed them on the front page. The elated fans of the crooner then rushed to Twitter to share their excitement. However, a few also noticed the chart that came in different languages had a translation issue in Spanish. Many users corrected the singer on the micro-blogging site trolling her of using a Google Translator instead of hiring professionals.

Lorde trolled for wrong translations on 'Mood Ring' chart
Since the tracklist of Lorde’s ‘Solar Power’ is already out, fans easily guessed the next single to be ‘Mood Ring ‘by looking at the mood ring chart. The chart lists different moods such as ‘stressed’, ‘nervous’, ‘unsettled’, ‘active’, ‘relaxed’, ‘lovable’, ‘romantic’ and ‘happy’. The multi-platinum crooner, however, did not reveal the release date keeping her fans guessing. Speaking of the mood ring chart, Lorde got dragged over the word ‘lovable’ as a wrong Spanish translation made it to the website. The mood ring chart also listed the words in Dutch and French with a headline reading, ‘Tell Me How I’m Feeling’.
Speaking of ‘Solar Power’, Lorde has already released the title track along with the recent song called ‘Stoned at the Nail Salon’. The album will hit the Internet on August 20, 2021. The new full-length record will also be available to fans on a disc-less, eco-conscious CD alternative called a “Music Box”. Each Music Box will include additional visual content, handwritten notes, exclusive photos and a download card. Interestingly, the download card will allow fans to have access to two exclusive bonus tracks and other “special surprises” which will be announced later. Shedding light on her new ambitious project, Lorde in a press statement said, “The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors.” The award-winning crooner further shared, “In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learned to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.” Lorde will also hit the road in 2022 for her ‘Solar Power’ tour.
‘She could hire some translators’
As soon as the fans claimed the word ‘lovable’ was wrongly translated from Spanish and they trolled the singer for not being careful. One user stated, “Ok but she could hire some translators and stop using google translate.” Another posted, “gutgelaunt = relaxed ?????????literally two different things.” One user added, “The spanish translations tho” followed by a emoticon of a crying face. Another user added, “Lovable is not a spanish word LOL, it's amable or maybe adorable.” One social media user pointed out another word and tweeted, “stresses =tensionado, come thru google translator.” The next one spoke about the album and posted, “Her label is garbage. this album wouldve been hyped.” Whereas, one user said, “Lorde announce mood ring now i need to know when it is coming.” And, one concluded, “Lorde better release a mood ring merch cos i love stealing mood rings.”
