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.
