Lorde’s mega hit, “Royals,” may have been accused of being a racist criticism of hip-hop — at least the more exaggerated face of the genre — but best believe the singer knows good rap when she hears it. As her extensive tour swung through Philadelphia last week, the New Zealand sensation treated the Mann Center crowd to her own rendition of Kanye West’s “Flashing Lights.” She also tried her hand at Bon Iver’s “Heavenly Father,” too.
