Lorde‘s imminent global takeover is underway. Literally, she stepped foot in America, wowed critics in her live U.S. debut, and announced her debut album Pure Heroine. So many of my high school friends are quoting her lyrics in their Facebook statuses; it’s outrageous. Who even still updates their Facebook status? Like, Lorde is single-handedly bringing that back. Now, R&B star The Weeknd wants to join the fun by re-envisioning “Royals,” Lorde’s most popular song to date, with boosted production and the addition of his own vocals in the background. This is easily my favorite thing he has done since Trilogy.
