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
This song reached American shores a couple months ago, slowly building buzz, and is becoming your friend’s favorite song of the moment. It will certainly be on my Top Songs of 2013 list, but I’ve played it so many times and listened to numerous covers that I’m already tired of it. And it’s not even due to having heard it nonstop on the radio because I haven’t even heard it on the radio yet (I don’t really listen to the radio though…). However, the song is currently number one of the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, the first female to do so in 17 years, and #24 (and climbing) on the Top 100. One awesome thing about all of this that she’s only 16 years old!
Here are a couple covers and a remix of the catchy tune:
Kina Grannis (SWOOOOOOON!) & Fresh Big Mouf – My fav cover for obvious reasons.
Selena Gomez – She tried LOL.
A remix by The Weeknd – Minimal crooning thankfully.
