Lorde admitted on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” that she needed to be hooked up to an IV after day drinking with the show’s host, Seth Meyers, for a prerecorded segment of the show.

The pop star filmed a video with Meyers where the two played a number of drinking games and tried out Lorde-themed drinks.

When the 47-year-old host asked the “Solar Power” singer on Thursday’s show if she was hungover the day after filming, she said that she could not “look at an alcoholic drink ever again.”

“You did kind of destroy me,” she told Meyers. “I had to get, a very pop star thing, an IV drip. Someone came to my hotel and administered fluids to my corpse.”

Meyers praised Lorde’s live performance of her first single in four years, “Solar Power,” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” which was filmed the day after the day-drinking event. He also revealed he was “very nervous” to watch the show, considering the amount of alcohol consumed.

During the segment, Lorde and Meyers tried alcoholic drinks based on the New Zealand singer’s previous songs: “Solar Power,” “Royals,” a cover of “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” and “Ribs.”

The host was also forced to take a shot whenever he could not remember Lorde’s real name, Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor.

Earlier this week, the “Melodrama” singer released her second song, “Stoned at the Nail Salon” from her upcoming third album, “Solar Power,” which will be released on August 20.

In a newsletter sent to fans in June, Lorde wrote, “The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalising the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors.”
