Lorde - Royals
This is one of the smartest lyrics for a number one hit in ages. Lorde is commenting on how the materialism of hip hop has no basis in reality to most music listeners. My friends and I we've cracked the code We count our dollars on the train to the party And everyone who knows us knows that we're fine with this We didn't come from money Lode contradicts the economic reality of most people with the lyrics in hip hop. But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece. Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair Lorde is young but she is the real thing. This version of Royals was performed in Brazil.
