Hi! I'm going to be doing weekly post on who I think the artist of the week should be and such. So hopefully you guys like it because I feel it be good to expose some artist you guys never heard of or just artist we all know and love. If you guys have artist you love and you think people should know about them leave in the comment and I'll search them up and maybe they will be the next artist of the week!
So this week's artist of the week is none other then Lana Del Rey. Most of you know her from that song called "Summertime Saddness" remixed by that Dj last summer.
She has been around for a few years. Most known for her second studio album from a major label was "Born To Die" It debuted at #2 on billboard in 2012 and was the 5th best selling album of 2012.
The album recently sold over a million copies as of late March.
Her video's I find are mini-movies and I love them so much. While I'm speaking of movies she released a short film called "Tropico" the 27 minute short length film features three songs.
Check out the short film you will LOVE it!
She also wrote a song for the hit movie "The Great Gatsby" and her song " Young and Beautiful" was the main song of the whole movie and it always made me smile when I see the movie in the theater with my friend. If you haven't heard that song yet you need to listen now!
And she also did a cover of "Once Upon A Dream" For disney's new movie "Maleficent"
She has such raw talent and to me she reminds me of the late 50's and 60's artist and I love how she brings herself when she sings. Because when I saw her live last month it was nothing but vocals and her vocals were AMAZING! One of the best show's I've ever attended! You must see her if you ever get the chance It is just one those things you need to do.
And as we are on the eve of her 4th album drop this Tuesday. She has one the years most anticipated album's. The song's she has given us so far are West Coast, Shades of Cool, Ultraviolence, and Brookyln Baby. We can tell from those 4 songs she shares so personal stories in this album and I can't wait to own the album.
The album leaked online last week even though I've listen to it I am going to be buying this album for sure You will love this album.
Lana has a new found success and she isn't letting it get to her. So if you haven't preordered the album yet do so because this going to be one of the best album's of 2014 for sure!
Here is the latest song off Ultraviolence! Give it a listen and listen to the rest of the track's on her youtube! What do you guys think of lana? Love her or hate her? Please tell me I'd love to know! We are going to be seeing a lot of Lana for years to come and that is a fact.
