Not with a bang, more like a hot breeze, Lana Del Rey walked sultrily into or lives back in 2011. In a world of insistent booty shaking, her aura of suave coolness was a welcome change of pace. And that she appeared with a seemingly unending arsenal of strong songs combining the sound of right now with a 60´s-tinged sense of melancholia and ennui made her almost impossible to resist. Ever since she´s been building her alternative universe, a place where David Lynch is locked in a never ending slow dance with Nancy Sinatra and you´re welcome there too. Just slide thru the velvet drapes and don´t make any sudden moves.
After Lana Del Reys breakthrough with the viral sensation "Video Games" and the follow up "Blue Jeans", she released the album "Born to die". It went on to become the fifth most sold album of 2012. Since then she´s released two albums ("Ultraviolence" and "Honeymoon") and three EPs filled with dark, dreamy music. Recently she released the new album "Lust For Life" and it is clear that 2017 will be the biggest year ever for Lana Del Rey.
Elizabeth Woolridge Grant (born June 21, 1985), known professionally as Lana Del Rey, is an American singer, songwriter, and model. Her music has been noted by critics for its stylized cinematic quality, its preoccupation with themes of tragic romance, glamour, and melancholia, and its references to pop culture, particularly 1950s and 1960s Americana.
