New York Mayor Bill de Blasio Blasts Lorde’s ‘Royals’ At Victory Party (Video)

Lorde’s fanbase has expanded from Switzerland homebodies to rappers and now, politicians. After being named the Mayor of New York City Tuesday night (Nov. 5), Bill de Blasio soundtracked his victory with the soul sensation’s no. 1 smash “Royals.” Watch him step up to the podium above after a warm welcome from his wife Chirlane, “Progress” sign-holders and a 16-year-old blaring through the speakers. Laced with such lines “Let me be your ruler,” consider de Blasio’s new anthem a campaign message.
