If one has yet to hear Lorde’s smash hit “Royals”, he/she must be purposely avoiding it, or perhaps just been born. The point is, the song is everywhere. It can even be heard on D.C. and Baltimore rap stations now! With that being said, it is nice to hear a cool, unique cover of the song courtesy of the reggae rockers Reef’d.
The band fuses reggae with other styles seamlessly and they are able to shine a new light on the “Royals” song. I really enjoyed listening to the song, and after hearing many covers, it is always refreshing when it feels like a new experience. I am glad I discovered these guys; special thanks to Ricky Cervantes for the indirect heads up! If you like reggae check them out.
