Royals, the debut single from New Zealand pop songstress Lorde, has yet to crack the Top 40 Stateside (it currently sits at #59), but if I were a betting man, I’d put money on it blowing up. Whether it’s the catchy melody or the quirky, minimal production, it exudes a crossover appeal that few listeners are able to resist. Even Booth fave Gilbere Forte’s been bumping it, as evidenced by this freshly-released remix of the cut. Frequent collaborator RAAK mans the mixing boards, serving up a skeletal, trap-informed deconstruction of the record’s artist-produced beat. Over the tweaked instrumental, the EPIC Records rhymesayer delivers an engagingly-flowed rundown of his aspirations in the game. Has Forte’ done justice to the reader-approved original? If you’re feeling this revamp, you’ll doubtless find more to like on his PRAY LP, available now for free streaming and download in the Booth.
