Everything about this song and video is the bomb. The simple beat that includes the very silly, but lovable finger snap. The New Zealander singer who is adorable and only 16! I especially love the lyrics and the message that touch on coming from humble beginnings and everyone’s obsession with money.
“But everybody’s like…
Diamonds on your timepiece
Tigers on a gold leash
We don’t care, we’re aren’t caught up in your love affair”
“And we’ll never be royals
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler…”
Lorde (her real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor) also has a new video out that is nothing short of simple amazingness. I’m loving this girl a lot. Lyricism is important to me and she has some interesting things to say!
