Royals legend meets ‘Royals’ singer
Lorde’s song, "Royals," spent nine weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
The singer has stated that she got the inspiration for the song after seeing a picture in a magazine of Royals third baseman George Brett wearing his team’s jersey while signing autographs in 1976.
On Tuesday, the Royal and the Royals singer finally met for the first time.
TMZ Sports reports that the meeting happened in Las Vegas before Lorde’s concert at The Cosmopolitan. According to the site, it’s been a meeting in the making for quite some time, but scheduling issues have prevented it, until now:
