Raekwon has decided to remix one of the hottest songs on the charts right now, Lorde’s “Royals.” The Wu-Tang legend jumps on Lorde’s song and adds his own verses about the good life. Miss Info debuted the track and shares that it’s a teaser until the Chef’s F.I.L.A. (Fly International Luxurious Art) album drops.

“Royals” is one of the year’s hottest songs and earlier this year, The Weeknd added his own spin to the track as did Troy Ave.

Lorde has garnered other hip-hop fans including none other than Kanye West. The New Zealand beauty told Rolling Stone that she met the superstar producer/rapper overseas in London. “He said he liked the messages [in my songs], which was cool… I was saying to myself, ‘Keep cool. This is normal.’” Lorde said that Ye was very friendly,”He’s a really mellow dude – super relaxed” and she had to compose herself to not groupie out.

Billboard magazine recently dubbed Lorde as “The New Queen Of Alternative.”
