Lana Del Rey

Birthdate: 21. June 1985

Elizabeth Woolridge Grant , known professionally as Lana Del Rey, is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. Her music has been noted by critics for its stylized cinematic quality, its preoccupation with themes of tragic romance, glamour, and melancholia, and its references to pop culture, particularly 1950s and 1960s Americana.Raised in Upstate New York, Del Rey moved to New York City in 2005 to embark on her music career. Following numerous projects including her debut studio album and the unreleased Sirens, Del Rey's breakthrough came after the viral success of her single "Video Games" in 2011. She then signed with Interscope and Polydor later that year. Her major label debut Born to Die proved an international success and spawned her first top-ten single on the Billboard Hot 100 with the Cedric Gervais remix of "Summertime Sadness". Since, Del Rey has released the US Billboard 200 number-one albums Ultraviolence and Lust for Life , along with top-ten releases Paradise and Honeymoon . She has received nominations for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album for both Paradise and Lust for Life.

Del Rey has contributed to a variety of film soundtracks, most notably "Young and Beautiful" for The Great Gatsby and the eponymous theme for Big Eyes , which garnered her a Grammy and Golden Globe nomination, respectively. Del Rey starred in the musical film Tropico and in short films to accompany her work including Ride , National Anthem , and Freak , all of which she wrote.

Dubbed by the media as the "Queen of Indie Pop", Del Rey has sold over 15 million albums worldwide as of 2018. Her official YouTube channel has accumulated over 3.1 billion views as of November 9, 2018, with 10 of her videos surpassing 100 million views on Vevo.
