Rick Ross Remixes Lorde’s ‘Royals’
Even though his latest single, ‘No Games‘ featuring Future, failed to make it onto the Billboard Hot 100, Rick Ross is bullying his way onto the charts by any means necessary. After remixing Drake’s ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home,’ the MMG mogul adds his graceful touch to the current No. 1 single in the U.S., ‘Royals,’ by New Zealand teen sensation Lorde.
“Flowing in the pocket like I’m rolling into college / Mean as a dean, triple beam well-polished,” he raps with the same effortless confidence and measure of rhythm. Although undeniably awesome, Rozay’s verse is only brief, so you still get to enjoy Lorde’s original vocals.
In case the penny hasn’t yet dropped, the irony of Rick Ross jumping on ‘Royals’ is pretty overwhelming. Lorde lambasts the “Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your time piece” culture, which few champion better than Rozay. Feministing.com has accused the song of carrying deeper, racist sentiments, but we’ll save that for another article.
Rick Ross’ sixth solo album, ‘Mastermind,’ is due Dec. 17.
