If you like Lorde’s hit song “Royals” — or just looking for a fresh twist on the track, which has been on heavy rotation over the past few months — you have to listen to T-Pain’s version!
The rapper completely reverses the anti-materialistic message that the teen pop star originally sings about in the track that sparked her fame and made her a Grammy award-winning artist.
The auto-tune master praises the privileged lifestyle singing, “Seems like yesterday we was drinking Crown Royal / We ain’t really give a f*** / Now they try to hate on us / And I just party on my bus / Let me see you get loose, girl … Work hard, play hard, money over everything.”
What do you think of T-Pains spin on Lorde’s hit song? Do you prefer the original?
