STREAM: Lorde – “Royals” (The Weeknd Remix)


Talk about a match made in Heaven!

One of our new favorite artists that we’ve been covering for some time now, the 16-year-old Ella Yelich-O’Connor, also known as Lorde, has been remixed by renowned Canadian crooner, The Weeknd.

Abel Tesfaye takes his label-mate Lorde’s single, “Royals,” and adds synths and subtle hints of his own vocal contributions to the already heavy beat of this undeniably catchy jam. You can stream The Weeknd’s rework as well as Lorde’s original after the jump.

Both artists are set to release their newest efforts in September. Lorde’s Pure Heroine (Sept. 30) being her debut full-length and follow-up to her excellent Tennis Court and The Love Club EPs, while The Weeknd’s Kiss Land (Sept. 10) serves as the follow-up to his major label debut, Trilogy, comprised of his previous three mixtapes and three brand new tracks.
