Move over, Lorde (just kidding, please don’t go anywhere). The University of Maryland a capella group Kol Ish have their own take on the 17-year-old’s hit song “Royals.” It’s called “Mohels,” and as far as a cappella songs go, it’s a pretty serious response to the anti-circumcision movement. But it’s so. damn. catchy.
