That must be why so many MCs have recently decided to do just that, putting their own touch on “Royals,” the number-one hit by Kiwi singer Lorde. The song’s buttery beat could also have something to do with it, but we’ve got a feeling Rick Ross has always had an infinity for New Zealand pop music.

We decided to put together a “best-of” list of the remixes. Check it out after the jump.
