Pop singer Lorde recently burst on the scene with her number one single “Royals.” Since her debut, every rapper with an ear for beats and lyrics has wanted to spit a verse over the track. Maybach Music general Rick Ross just dropped his own remix to the hit song. While Ross raps in his signature style, this is a slight departure for him because the whole verse isn’t about his diamonds or whatever model he’s inexplicably smashing at the moment. Ricky Rozay references some pop culture sensations like the hit political drama “Scandal” and world-reknowned crime and mystery author John Grisham.
Ross is dropping remixes to popular songs to get fans hyped for the December 17 release of his sixth studio album “Mastermnd.” Does his remix to “Royals” serve its purpose? Sound off after you check out the track below.
