Elizabeth Wooldridge Grant is known by her stage name Lana Del Rey was born on June 21, 1985. She is a very successful American Singer-songwriter.
Her music is known to have references from pop culture, especially the 50’s and the 60’s Americana.
Lana Del Rey songs are often noted for its themes of glamour, tragic romance, cinematic quality, and melancholia. My favorite is the lead single “Young and Beautiful” from the movie “The Great Gatsby” (2013). As of 2020, her Vevo and YouTube pages have combined views of 4.1 billion.
She has sold over 13 million singles and 19.1 million albums worldwide. Her accolades include- nine GAFFA Awards, a Satellite Award, two MTV Europe Music Awards, two Brit Awards, a Golden Globe nomination, and six Grammy Award nominations.
She suffered from anxiety and feeling of alienation in her teenage years. Music was something that helped her reprieve her zest for life, and her lyrics signify that.
. A few lines into her songs, and you will resonate with those hauntingly powerful words that would touch your soul.
