Do you have “Royals” fatigue yet? If so, that’s understandable! But don’t let that prevent you from exploring the rest of Lorde‘s debut Pure Heroine, one of the year’s best albums. And don’t let that keep you from watching Jason Derulo‘s recent live cover of the hit for BBC 1’s Live Lounge.

The jacked Tattoos singer was reading the lyrics off an iPad, but that didn’t stop him from turning out a solid rendition, even adding his own twist during this rare male cover of the song: “You could call me King Bee.” Hate to break it to Jason, but things might get contentious if he runs into King B.

Check out the performance up top.
