Required Listening: Lorde Featuring Rick Ross – “Royals” (Remix)

You had to know this was coming.

There is little doubt in my mind that you, like me, think about Rick Ross every time you hear Lorde‘s breakout single “Royals.” She may not mention the MMG mastermind by name, but her lyrics about songs that mention Maybach in the chorus instantly brings to mind the label Ross oversees. Now, just weeks after the original hit went number one, Ross comes through and delivers his version of “Royals” for fans to enjoy.

Keeping the original song almost entirely in tact, Ross has injected a new verse into the middle of …

The leak of “Fuck Your Blog” may not have been planned, but Gambino knew exactly what he was doing when he went to Funkmaster Flex tonight with the first official audio to surface off his forthcoming mixtape.
