Rising Star: Lana Del Rey

February 17, 2012

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems as though the United States is always a bit late when it comes to music, seeing as Lana Del Rey has been all over international music charts for some time now. Yet as word spreads about Del Rey, and she continues with her talk show appearances here in the US, there is no reason her songs won’t  flood US charts in due time. Although Del Rey was harshly criticized after her first television appearance on Saturday Night Live, there is no denying the indie pop/adult alternative artist has great talent.

If Del Rey’s stunning features aren’t enough to draw you in, her voice surely will. Del Rey joined the music scene in 2008, and with the release of her new album “Born to Die” just last month, she has truly emerged into the spotlight. “Born to Die” held the number one place on the Billboard’s Top Digital Albums last week, and still remains on the chart this week. Many artists today bring an entertainment element to their performances, but Del Rey is one of the artists that focuses solely on her vocals. Del Rey has one of the absolute most unique voices I’ve ever heard, and I don’t know how anyone could resist becoming a fan. Her sultry voice is so deliciously alluring that once you listen to one song, you just won’t be able to stop.
