Denver Broncos Talk Loving Drake & Jay Z But Hating "Royals"

With Bruno Mars set to rock the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show and a slew of incredible concerts leading up to this Sunday, music is playing a huge part of Super Bowl XLVIII. 

Just days before the big game, Fuse spoke with members of the Denver Broncos and learned which rappers and singers the player listen to, idolize and occasionally get sick of hearing.

"If Jay Z were here, I'd probably faint," defensive end Robert Ayers tells Fuse, laughing. "He's by far [my favorite artist]."

"I just vibe with everything Drake talks about," safety Duke Ihenacho says. "I like his delivery. He doesn't talk about stuff that he's not about. I respect that."

As for wide receiver Nathan Palmer, he admits there's a song that annoys him: "Lorde's 'Royals.' I know she won a GRAMMY and it's a great song, but it gets stuck in my head. It's so catchy."

Who does Palmer like? Well, he doesn't necessarily like One Direction, but he does compare himself to Harry Styles. To find out why, check out the full interview above. And to see what songs other NFL all-stars listen to in order to get pumped up, head here.
