Lorde‘s song “Royals” is a sonic statement against all the materialism that rappers flow about.
She calls out gold teeth, Cristal, Grey Goose, and Maybach, and ends her chorus with “we don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair.”
In Rick Ross‘ recent remix of “Royals,” that concept was completely thrown out the window.
Joined by Wale, the two rappers let loose on a dope beat but stick to the old school structure of what a rap song is about.
Listen to the remix below and see what you think of this new version of Lorde’s song.
