West Coast Success

Vevo WallpaperBy Taylor Feeney

Early on April 14, 2014, the day after previewing “West Coast” at Coachella, Lana Del Rey released “West Coast” to the U.S. and currently holds position 17 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The music video is expected to premier this week according to Vevo. Right now, through online streaming, you can see a part of the video on a loop. Laura Clark, a writer for The Guardian said, “Singer Lana Del Rey has officially hit number 17 on the Billboard Top 100 this week with her new hit, ‘West Coast’, making the song the second biggest success of her career in the U.S.”. Born To Die, her last studio album had its mixed reviews but was the fifth bestselling album globally. I think that there is a lot expected out of her next album Ultraviolence. Del Rey has gained a lot of popularity from her contribution to the Great Gatsby Soundtrack with “Young and Beautiful” and the remix of “Summertime Sadness” by Cedric Gervais. As her fan base grows, the quality of her work will be expected to as well. Born To Die and her Born To Die: The Paradise Edition EP have great melodic tracks, and yes it’s dark but Ultraviolence will have a slightly different spin. According to Del Rey she says, ““It is absolutely gorgeous – darker then the first – so dark it’s almost unlistenable and wrong. But I love it”.
