VEVO Presents Mayer Hawthorne covering Lorde’s “Royals”

Mayer Hawthorne tackled Lorde‘s chart-topping hit “Royals” for VEVO’s increasingly enjoyable Unexpected Covers video series — transforming the 16-year-old’s jittery hip-hop/electro concoction into a smooth soul song custom-made for repeat play after midnight.

“The ease with which the track makes the genre transition is a testament to Lorde’s songwriting skills and Mayer’s crushed-velvet vocals. He makes the song his own, injecting it with longing and melancholy.” – VIBE
