Listen: The Weeknd Remixes Lorde's "Royals"

If there was any doubt that New Zealand singer-songwriter/phenom Lorde was on the up-and-up, now The Weeknd (AKA Abel Tesfaye) has remixed her hit, "Royals." Big time stuff.

The Canadian R&B crooner put a synthy spin on the track, adding a fresh dose of soul to the already laid-back track. In other words, now you can put "Royals" on your heavy petting playlist. 

Speaking to MTV, Lorde recently listed The Weeknd as one of her recent faves. "The Weeknd is really powerful... and I really like [his] music." He likes yours too, apparently. Collabo soon?!
