Lorde’s “Royals” Covered By Black Simon & Garfunkel On ‘Fallon’: Watch
Late Night fake musical duo Black Simon & Garfunkel (The Roots‘ Questlove and “Captain” Kirk Douglas) made their Tonight Show debut last week with a cover of Lorde‘s “Royals.” As is tradition, they stripped down the song to its sparest parts, accompanied by just an acoustic guitar and those sweet, sweet harmonies.
It’s kind of odd that they got around to doing “Timber” before doing this song — in fact, at a couple points it seems Quest had already forgotten the lyrics to the once-ubiquitous hit. Watch the quick bit up top.
