Lana Del Rey has become super popular recently. I do not personally listen to her too much, but I do know a ton of people who are in love with her. A lot of the people I know who like her could be considered “hipster” so I guess I am just not cool enough to enjoy her music. I believe she has only released two albums Born to Die and Paradise. Both of which were very successful on the charts. She has a very soulful sound, and her voice is very rich. She has gained lots of attention, and she has worked hard for it. Her songs are slow, and definitely not “light pop.” Her sound is reminiscent of the 60’s, and her music is great for use in TV or music. She sounds real, and her lyrics are serious. I think it’s great that she is becoming so well-known because it shows how diverse popular music can be.
