One of the biggest international songs of the year was Royals by Lorde.
She’s a singer from New Zealand. Her song Royals was a huge hit across the world.
I had actually never heard it until I started hearing a cover version by Craig Campbell and The Raging Idiots.
I’m not sure who gets top billing on the track, but we’ll pretend that it’s Craig.
Royals – Craig Campbell
Craig is one of my favorite current country singers. His last single took over a year to break into the top 30, but people eventually took notice. It was a great song and that marks about three songs now that Craig has taken into the top 30 on the charts.
That’s no small feat and I hope he can follow it up with this one. I’m not sure if it’s an official single, but it’s a really cool song either way. Craig does a great job on it.
You won’t hear songs like this on country radio very often. It’s very unique. It’s kind of dark. It’s about how all we see these days in the world are all the exploits of stars and royals. They’re media stars, but what do they really contribute to society?
Cool song. I like it.
