Just when you thought you’ve heard it all, T-Pain and his signature auto-tune enter the realm with his rendition of Lorde’s “Royals.” Maybe he missed the point of Lorde’s anti-glamorous lyrics, because throughout his remix T-Pain robo-croons about his A-list lifestyle, even changing the chorus to a grammatical nightmare of “Seems like yesterday we was drinking Crown Royal.”
That’s not all. T-Pain also explains how he “started from the bottom now we’re here” by switching up the original “We’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams” to “Look at all these Cadillacs on 20s!”
Additionally the “T-Mix” features multiple shout outs to his Floridian hometown (“Tallahassee, what’s up?”) and a wise message to the world: “Work hard, play hard, money over everything.”

T-Pain isn’t the first to make his own version of the Grammy-winning track as other artists like Rick Ross and Wale have also previously covered “Royals.” As of yet Lorde hasn't commented on any of the remixes.
