Easily Access Song Lyrics from Genius

Easily retrieve song lyrics from Genius < https://genius.com> as tibbles.



The name of this package has been changed from geniusR to genius due to a name conflict on CRAN.

This update makes some drastic changes to the base genius_url() function. It closes two long lasting pull requests #4, and #12.

Big thanks to @natebarr64 for his pull request #20 that fixed issue #4. This PR also created a new feature.

@natebarr64 create the argument info = "features" which will identify the song element and artist for that element if they are available. You can use this for genius_url(), genius_lyrics(), and genius_album().
