Music We're Diggin: Royals

Sassy, yet thoughtful girl vocals from Lorde.

I am not positive, but I think this is a sad song. It makes me sad, or at least melancholy. Like they feel like they failed, and I failed, because I am not rich and famous. Damn you.. Hollywood/pop culture/culture/top 40/MTV for making me feel this way!

Royals is one of five songs from the album The Love Club, released in march 2013. Lorde, or Ella Yelich-O'Connor to her friends, is a 16 year old sensation from Auckland, New Zealand.

Lorde has also just released Tennis Court which was played during the BBC coverage of this years Wimbledon Women's final. It's well worth a listen.
