One of the most exciting musical artists to emerge in the last few decades, Lana Del Ray made her mark with a new sound nobody had heard on the radio. Since then, she has delivered variations on her trademark style — from darker, psychedelic-tinged tracks to lighter love songs — without ever losing sight of her roots. I knew it was important that I came in straight as an arrow with that one. Something separates me from other people. Lust For Life marked the first time that Lana collaborated with other artists on an album. It starts with a melody being played softly on a piano, with the trap beat coming in on the chorus, and showcases some of the best production on the album. Lana sings in a higher pitch than usual on this song, though arguably delivers her best vocal to date, while the guitar solo on the bridge provides the most powerful moment of the track. With hip-hop percussion and an almost monotone melody, which Lana sings on the chorus, it is also the most pop-sounding of all her tracks. The clip was shot and edited by Lana on her own webcam and shows her singing with pursed lips, intercut with archive footage of LA. EDM dominated the charts in the early 00s, so a remix of the song by French DJ Cedric Gervais was well timed, arguably becoming a bigger hit than the original while taking Lana to a new audience.
10. ‘Venice Bitch’
The track was released as the second promotional single from Del Rey's sixth studio album, Norman Fucking Rockwell! Later that day, she released the two as a joint promotional single on digital outlets. The track was written and produced by Del Rey and Jack Antonoff. If this is it, I'm signing off". Placed in the second half of her "double feature" music video, the song plays after tumbling waves and a drone shot of Long Beach serve as prelude. Reminiscent of shots from her video for " Ride ", Del Rey plays darts and pool in the bar accompanied by older, biker-like men. Towards the end of the video, happy bar patrons are shown one of them being Del Rey's brother Charlie. The video ends with a shot of Del Rey sitting on a boat "heading forward", similar to how she was in the cover art for the album. The video was directed by Rich Lee , who had previously directed the videos for "Love", " Lust for Life ", and "White Mustang", among others.
