Listen: Rick Ross Remixes Lorde's 'Royals'

October 23, 2013 By:
Lorde's 85 BPM track has been begging for a rap remix since its release, and finally we get one worth talking about from Rick Ross. Ross' silky smooth voice and timing perfectly compliment the song's minimalist beat and Lorde's fluttery unique sound. The ironic thing is that the singer's values, expressed by turning the culture of excess on its head, get turned right back around as the rapper references counting presidents in the attic and getting his fur rug dirty. You'll have to listen to fully understand the complete contradiction, but if you ignore the words he's saying the sound is there.
