Lorde’s Future Smash “Royals” Gets A Hip-Hop Makeover: Listen To The RAAK Remix

9656a7d2ed52ab7e0293ceae5cfc3fd9 Lorde’s Future Smash “Royals” Gets A Hip Hop Makeover: Listen To The RAAK Remix

Lorde‘s status as the next big thing is confirmed by a new hip-hop remix of iTunes-conquering hit “Royals”. You know you’ve made it when rising MCs jump on your track! Produced by RAAK, the surprisingly effective urban makeover features Gilbere Forte. Who? Well, pop fans might remember the LA-based rapper’s verse on Bob Sinclar and Sophie Ellis-Bextor‘s “F**k With You”. (Or not).

It turns out Gilbere is signed to Epic Records and has a record about to drop, hence the buzz-raising remix action. It turns out to be a smart idea. Lorde’s hypnotic tune has a subtle, head-nodding beat that lends itself to reinvention. This isn’t a scratch on the original but makes a fun addition to your iPod for those days when you want to mix it up with peculiar urban remixes. Listen after the jump.

Is this a pleasant diversion or waste of time? Be honest in the comments below.
