OK, OK, so I’ve heard of Justin Bieber and I hate him as much as pretty much everyone who reads this will. I have 100% never heard of the other artist responsible for the original version of this song.
However, much like Among Legends managed with The Shite Girls recently, Royals have taken (what I assume is) a dull-as-dishwater piece of pop crap and wrapped it in a bubblegum pop-punk wrapper. On the strength of this new video, the original may not be the steaming turd I would assume it would be given its source… but I’m not in a hurry to find out. I’ll stick to this cover version.
