As the release date for Lorde's much-anticipated album looms, the singer admitted she needed an IV drip after she got drunk with Seth Meyers.
The singer joined the late-night host to promote her new song Stoned At The Nail Salon, and she admitted she needed some hydration after consuming cocktails for a skit they filmed together.
Meyers asked Lorde: "To be honest, how hungover were you the next day?"
She admitted she "can't look" at an alcoholic drink since they filmed the segment.
"It was insane," she said.
Meyers explained they filmed the day-drinking clip last Monday, the day before her performance on Stephen Colbert. And the Late Night host admitted he was worried he somehow sabotaged her live performance of Solar Power.
"You did kind of destroy me," Lorde declared.
"And I had to get a very popstar thing, an IV drip," she said.
"Someone came to my hotel and had to administer fluids to my 'corpse'," Lorde told the talk show host.
Meyers invented a range of unusual Lorde-inspired cocktails including a cocktail inspired by her song ribs which featured an actual cooked rib.
The pair kicked the segment off with a beer. Sadly a Lion Red or Tui wasn't on the menu but Myers offered the Auckland singer the classic Australian beer Fosters.
"We tried to get a New Zealand beer, but we couldn't get one. So, we got a Foster's – which is Australian. I'm sure, as a Kiwi, you will admit those countries are interchangeable," the talk show host said.
During the segment, Lorde tests the show host on his Kiwi slang knowledge, including bach and wop wops.
When he asked Lorde to use the word bach in a sentence she replied: "that's a really nice bach", to which Myers rolls his eyes.
"You know what you can f*** right up Lorde," he says while reaching for a shot.
Meyer's attempted Kiwi accent sounded more like Marky Mark from the Funky Bunch.
Lorde was then quizzed on her knowledge of New England slang including, clicker and 30 rack.
Clicker is another name for a TV remote and 30 rack is just how New England natives say 30 Rock.
The pair then played a game called "guess the Royal". They then dive into a spot of abstract painting where Lorde admitted she is "drunk".
The singer started on the US talk show host to premiere her latest single, ahead of her performance of Stoned at the Nail Salon on Meyers' programme.
The song is an introspective ballad, which lets fans into the mind of Lorde after her last album. In comparison to Solar Power, the new song is slow and more melancholy.
She teased details about the performance:
"It's pretty cute that we're gonna perform this on Seth tonight the day it comes out, shoulder to shoulder two years and change to the day that we wrote it."
