I love this song. Its so dark, gloomy and haunting. Lorde’s song Royals, brings something new to mainstream music. It is different from the typical pop music that we hear today. In fact, the lyrics talk about how people in society are underprivileged but choose to live like we are otherwise. It also alludes to the positives and the negatives of such a mentality. The music video for this song is also just as strange as it features 2 young boys doing… less that ‘royal’ things. Anyways, I think that the music video compliments the song in a good way. I love the message of this song in general and it shows that Lorde is an artistic lyricist with vision.
