Lana Del Rey Details
Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey wears many hats, and she wears them quite well. Singer, songwriter, record producer, and model, Lana Del Rey is more than just your average performer. A Lana Del Rey concert is an experience that is about more than just music. Known for her hauntingly beautiful voice, her music has stylized, cinematic quality that is a huge departure from typical pop music. Tragic romance, melancholy, and vintage pop culture references influence all of her songs, which are as unique as she is.
Lana Del Rey began her music career after moving to New York City in 2005. She didn’t receive widespread attention until 2011 when her music video for “Video Games” was released and went viral. A smashing success, Lana Del Rey was suddenly a household name, and fans couldn’t get enough of her music. She continued to have great success with each album release, much to the delight of her ever-growing fan base. Her 2012 album, "Born to Die", reached number two in the US and was the fifth best-selling album of 2012. "Born to Die" also hit number one in 11 other countries. Her second major release album in 2013, "Paradise", won Del Rey her first Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album. Three of the tracks from this album were featured in her short film, "Tropico". "Ultraviolence", released in 2014, was her first album to reach number one.
Her 2017 release is continuing the trend of success. "Lust for Life" is her second album to reach number one in the US, and has also reached the top ten in several other countries, making it a worldwide sensation like many of her previous albums. In addition to its international chart success, "Lust for Life" was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in 2018.
