Lana Del Ray hit the indie music scene last fall with her single “Video Games” and today she’s one of the most talked about new artists. People either love her, hate her or are simply tired of hearing all the buzz. I have to admit that “Video Games” has been stuck in my head for about a two weeks now. I find myself humming it, singing it and hitting replay. The second single “Born to Die” although darker, is just as catchy but the video has an actual concept and complements the song unlike the first…Ok enough about the singles let’s swing the focus to the album. “Born to Die” hit store’s Tuesday and is flying off the shelves despite a much talked about SNL performance and bad reviews from popular music mags like Rolling Stone. LDR seems to have an irresistible appeal. Maybe its the look, the pouty lips, the gangster references and/or her haunting voice that lures listeners in.
Does “Born to Die” live up to the hype? Are you tired of all the buzz?
