Maimouna Youssef Puts A Regal Spin On Lorde’s ‘Royals’

Royals-Maimouna Youssef final

Just as people were growing weary of hearing Lorde's song "Royals," the song’s popularity was reignited this past Sunday when the teen sensation won two GRAMMY Awards for the new classic. While all types of artists like Mayer Hawthorne have covered the track, Maimouna Youssef has gone beyond to make the song her own by adding a rap verse and a new chorus on "We're Already Royal." Most artists would shy away from altering the original so much, but it seems that Maimouna couldn’t let her creativity go to waste. Her risk is truly our reward. Lorde should thank Maimouna, because it seems as if she may have extended the life of this song even further.
