Power couple in the making!
Lorde stepped out with her boyfriend James Lowe in her native New Zealand on Thursday, Jan. 30, wearing her signature all-black attire with her dark hair unkempt as she strolled along with her 24-year-old man.
The 17-year-old Grammy winner sported a basic black tee, matching pants and her favorite chunky shoes, accessorizing her low-key look with a pair of reflective sunglasses with blue lenses and simple gold jewelry. Meanwhile, her photographer beau carried his camera, rocking a black T-shirt, jeans and a patterned button-down shirt which he kept open.
The "Royals" singer—who took home two Grammys at the 56th annual awards show on Sunday, Jan. 28, including Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance—enjoyed the sunshine with her man before jetting off to Australia for a series of festival performances.
Lorde was last spotted with her BF in late November on a beach in Auckland, where the two were seen showing off some subtle PDA as they cuddled in the cool ocean water.
The singing sensation, who often posts pictures of her man on her Instagram account, confirmed their romance in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, which hit newsstands on Jan. 17.
The couple endured some brutal cyber-bullying after the photos of the pair on the beach made headlines (Lowe was criticized for his appearance), and the young star admitted the comments took their toll.

Intellectually, she's aware the commenters are "the type of people who use the word 'f----t' as an insult," but she admitted she's "not completely impervious to insult."
"I'm a human being," the brunette beauty added.
But it seems that Lorde has the last laugh, as she's now the third-youngest Grammy winner in the ceremony's history, taking home more trophies than iconic stars like The Who, Britney Spears and Nirvana before she's barely of legal age.
