Lorde’s “Melodrama” is nominated for Album of the Year at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.

A song from her previous album, however, received attention at Republic Records’ pre-Grammy Party Friday night.

Lorde received a diamond plaque for her breakthrough hit “Royals.”

Issued by the RIAA, the award signifies at least 10 million in US units. Each unit is equal to 1 paid download or 150 streams.

Upon receiving her diamond plaque, Lorde celebrated the occasion — and posed for pictures — with family members and Republic co-founders Monty and Avery Lipman.

Republic shared some of those photos following Friday’s party, which took place at Cadillac House in New York.
