16-year-old singer-songwriter Lorde is one of the summer’s biggest breakout artists. Hailing from New Zealand, her debut single “Royals” has been a global smash hit, dominating the charts in New Zealand and Australia, and now gaining steam on the Billboard Hot 100 (currently at #8). Last week, “Royals” became the first release from a solo female artist to top the US Billboard Alternative Songs chart in 17 years, and this week it ascended to the top of the US Billboard Rock Songs chart.
Nick Bertossi, one of my favorite producers, has delivered a stellar remix of “Royals” — which I heard him play at Vancouver PRIDE last month. It’s one of those tracks that just gets better and better every time you hear it. Love this one!
