"I had this image from the National Geographic of this dude just signing baseballs,” Lorde said at the time. He was a baseball player and his shirt said, 'Royals.' It was just that word. It’s really cool."
After a few failed meet-up attempts, Lorde invited Brett to her Las Vegas concert on Tuesday night, where the two connected backstage.
"And we've come full circle! .@GeorgeHBrett, the inspiration for Grammy Award-winning song Royals, meets @Lordemusic," the Kansas City Royals tweeted.
Brett wrote on the jersey: "Lorde, you are Royal to me."
