Born to Die is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey. It was released on January 27, 2012 by Interscope Records, Polydor Records, and Stranger Records. Del Rey collaborated with producers including Patrik Berger, Jeff Bhasker, Chris Braide, Emile Haynie, Justin Parker, Rick Nowels, Robopop, and Al Shux to achieve her desired sound. Their efforts resulted in a primarily baroque pop record, which sees additional influences from alternative hip hop and trip hop music. Contemporary music critics were divided in their opinions of Born to Die; some commended its distinctive production, while its repetitiveness and melodramatic tendencies were a recurring complaint. The record debuted at number two on the U.S. Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 77,000 copies; it was later certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) after moving one million units. Born to Die reached the peak position on eleven international record charts, and has sold more than four million copies worldwide as of July 2014.[4] Combined with the Paradise edition, total sales of the repackaged album exceed five million copies.

After attaining online success after its initial premiere on June 29, 2011, "Video Games" was released as the lead single from Born to Die on October 17, 2011; it peaked at number 91 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Its follow-up singles "Born to Die", "Off to the Races", "Blue Jeans", "Summertime Sadness", "National Anthem", and "Dark Paradise" performed sporadically across Billboard component charts and international record charts. "Summertime Sadness" was re-released on July 11, 2013 after being remixed by Cedric Gervais, and became Del Rey's highest-charting single in the United States after reaching number six on the Billboard Hot 100. Del Rey additionally promoted Born to Die with several televised performances, including a widely-criticized appearance on Saturday Night Live. It was reissued on November 9, 2012 as an expanded version subtitled The Paradise Edition, which was packaged with her third extended play Paradise (2012).

Background and development[edit]

In 2007, Elizabeth "Lizzy" Grant signed a recording contract with the independent record label 5 Point Records, and began planning for her debut studio album. However, after hiring new management services, taking an interest in adopting the stage name Lana Del Ray, and a perceived lack of motivation during production, she found herself in conflict with the record label and her producer David Kahne. The final product Lana Del Ray was digitally released in January 2010, although her stage name was respelled Lana Del Rey shortly after its launch. Grant was successfully bought out of her recording contract upon the request of her manager; consequently, Lana Del Ray was pulled out of circulation before physical versions were produced.[5]

After settling with her current stage name, Del Rey signed a recording contract with Stranger Records in June 2011, and released the track "Video Games".[6] Initially, she had released the song because it was her "favorite" and had no intentions of releasing it as a single, although the video went viral on YouTube after its premiere.[7] During an appearance on the French television series Taratata in November 2011, Del Rey announced that her second studio album would be titled Born to Die.[8]

The cover for Born to Die was photographed by Nicole Nodland, while Del Rey and David Bowden oversaw the overall direction for its packaging. On behalf of Complex, Dale Eisinger ranked the cover eighth on their list of "The 50 Best Pop Album Covers of the Past Five Years", commending its usage of the typeface Steelfish and speaking favorably of the "ominous" feeling it evoked, which she credited to "the shadows or whatever the shapes in the background are [and] how properly Lana can affect her detached and still-flawless persona to a simple gaze."[9] Its track listing was announced on January 9, 2012,[10] while the record itself was released on January 31 in the United States; it became her major-label debut after securing a distribution arrangement with Interscope Records.[11]

In regards to the use of her lower vocals on the tracks, she stated that "people weren't taking me very seriously, so I lowered my voice, believing that it would help me stand out. Now I sing quite low... well, for a female anyway."[13] The singer's first singles, "Video Games" and "Born to Die" were described variously as "quasi-cabaret balladry",[14] "woozy and sometimes soporific soundtrack soul",[15] and "pop".[16] Her own description of her music is "Hollywood sadcore".[17] Tim Lee of musicOMH noted the songs are extremely similar, commenting that "her (alleged) agents clearly having stumbled upon a formula with which they can (allegedly) print money and (allegedly) further consign Lana's secretive, (allegedly) real debut LP to the annals of history. You didn't hear it from us, right?"[18] Del Rey has once been described as a "gangsta Nancy Sinatra",[19] though she cites Britney Spears, Elvis Presley and Antony and the Johnsons as her musical influences.[20] When asked about her musical style, the singer stated:

"I would have loved to be part of the indie community. But I wasn't. I was looking for a community, I don't even know any people who are musicians. I never met that indie popular indie, whoever the fuck that is. Who IS indie? First of all, I can't really get my head around what indie music is. Because if you've heard of it, it's sort of pop music, right? Because it's, like, popular? Or is it just that it's not on the radio? It's not like I was in an indie community and then I blew up. It's like, I was living on the street and I'm not – like, for real, you know what I'm saying?"[11]

The third track, "Blue Jeans", was influenced by hip hop and has a minimalist beat that recalls songs by Timbaland.[21][22] "Off to the Races" has been lyrically described as "a freak show of inappropriate co-dependency",[23] with a chorus that recalls Sheryl Crow's "down and out drunken loner persona" in her 1994 single "Leaving Las Vegas".[23] Pryia Elan of NME noted the track "almost falls under the weight of this persona. There's none of 'Video Games'' measured, piano-led reflection. Instead the psychosexual rumblings of the lyrics and the dual voices she uses off set the comparatively simple musical shades on display."[23]

"Off to the Races", "National Anthem", and "Diet Mountain Dew" employ an alternative rap technique that was described as almost "chatty".[24][25] "Million Dollar Man" was likened to a sedated Fiona Apple.[25] Musically compared to soundtracks for James Bond films, Born to Die contains trip hop beats and a cinematic sound reminiscent of the 1950s.[25] Thematically, Born to Die circulates around sex and drugs, with Del Rey playing a Lolita-esque persona.[24] Bill Lamb, a reviewer at About.com, wrote that "National Anthem" "[seems] lost in a messy blend of money, sex, and corporate greed, but it is the rousing yet graceful arrangement that solidifies the song's point of view as a clever critique of a society that is just as messy as these words."[26] "National Anthem", Lamb says, fits into the lyrical structure of Born to Die in that the theme, as a whole, is that of a "bitter, albeit narcotized, criticism of all of the wealth and emotional artifice Lana Del Rey is accused of embracing."[26] Vocally, NME observed that Del Rey sings like a "perfect mannequin" on "National Anthem", criticizing the track for baldly revisiting the beat-driven chorus of "Born to Die".[27] Del Rey recorded a demo of a song called "Ghetto Baby" in 2012, but the song was cut from the album and given to Cheryl Cole who recorded it for third studio album A Million Lights.[28][29]

Singles[edit]

"I feel like 'Video Games' and 'Blue Jeans' and 'Born to Die' are all like part of a trilogy; I had met this guy and I was really struck by him visually and when it became clear that we couldn't be together anymore, I just knew in my heart that I would still honor that relationship for a long time...It was just more about living in the memories of the best of the past and just honoring that time."

—Lana Del Rey[30]

"Video Games" was released as Del Rey's debut single on October 10, 2011.[31] The song received mostly positive reviews from contemporary critics, who praised Del Rey's vocals and considered it as one of the best songs of 2011.[32][33] "Video Games" attained worldwide success, reaching number one in Germany and top-ten positions in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Netherlands, Ireland, Poland, Scotland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.[34][35][36] An accompanying music video was directed and edited by Del Rey, assembled from video clips of skateboarders, cartoons, shots from old movies, and paparazzi footage of Paz de la Huerta falling down while intoxicated.[37] The music video was considered as the one that propelled the singer's online popularity.[37] The second single and title track, "Born to Die", was released as a digital download on December 30, 2011.[38] The music video for it leaked on December 14, 2011,[39] and was based on a concept created by the singer, while being directed by Yoann Lemoine.[40] The music video received generally favorable reviews from contemporary critics.[41]

Del Rey announced "Blue Jeans" as the third single from the album following "Video Games" and "Born to Die". It was officially released on April 6, 2012.[42] An accompanying music video, directed by Yoann Lemoine, premiered around the web on March 19, 2012.[43] The song "National Anthem" was announced as the fourth single and was released on July 9, 2012. The music video for "National Anthem" was released on June 27, 2012. "Summertime Sadness" was released as the fifth single on June 22, 2012. The official music video for "Summertime Sadness" was released on July 20, 2012. "Dark Paradise" was also released as the sixth and last single on March 1, 2013 only in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Poland.

Due to strong digital downloads following the album's release "Radio" charted at number 67 in France. Also, "Without You" debuted at number 121 in the UK.[44] "Off to the Races" was released as a promotional single in The Netherlands on January 6, 2012.[45] A music video, directed by Del Rey, was released on December 22, 2011.[46] "Carmen" was released as a promotional single in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland on January 26, 2012.[47][48][49] On February 27, 2012, Del Rey revealed through her Facebook that the video for the song "Carmen" was shot and would be finished being edited that day. The video for "Carmen" was released on April 21, 2012.[50]

Del Rey's song "Video Games" was featured for the first time on prime spot on The CW's Ringer on September 28, 2011 during a pivotal scene, propelling Del Rey into the mainstream.[51] Del Rey also promoted the album with performances in a number of live appearances, including for MTV Push,[52] and at the Bowery Ballroom, where, according to Eliot Glazer of New York, "the polarizing indie hipstress brought her 'gangsta Nancy Sinatra' swagu."[53] Matthew Perpetua of Rolling Stone commented that, despite Del Rey being nervous and anxious while performing her songs live, the singer "sang with considerable confidence, though her transitions from husky, come-hither sexuality to bratty, girlish petulance could be rather jarring."[54] Del Rey also performed "Video Games" on Dutch television program De Wereld Draait Door,[55] on British music television show Later... with Jools Holland,[56] and on an intimate show at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California.[57] Del Rey also gave several interviews for newspapers and online magazines such as The Quietus,[58] The Observer,[59] and Pitchfork Media,[60] while creating her own music videos for several tracks such as "Blue Jeans" and "Off to the Races".[61][62] On January 14, 2012, Del Rey appeared on Saturday Night Live to perform "Blue Jeans" and "Video Games". Her performance soon came under scrutiny, and was even criticized by NBC anchor Brian Williams, who referred to the performance as "the worst in SNL history".[63] Hosts Andy Samberg and Daniel Radcliffe quickly came to her defence, with the latter stating the criticism towards her was less about the performance and more about "her past and her family".[63] Ringer played another Del Rey song "Blue Jeans" on February 14, 2012 during the last scene of episode 13.[64]

Born to Die received polarized reviews from music critics.[65][74] At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted mean rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 62, based on 37 reviews, which indicates "generally favorable reviews".[65] Jaime Gill of BBC Music commented that the album "isn't perfect", criticizing the production of songs such as "Dark Paradise".[75] However, Gill concluded that Born to Die is the most distinctive debut album since Glasvegas's eponymous disc released in 2008.[75] Slant Magazine writer Sal Cinquemani gave the album 4 out of 5 stars, and commented that several tracks had their production changed for the album, making tracks such as "National Anthem" and "This is What Makes Us Girls" less "radio-friendly".[12] Cinquemani stated that, "ironically, the album's sole weakness is the strength of its immaculate production, which can be a bit overwhelming over the course of 12 tracks."[12] Alexis Petridis of The Guardian also graded it 4 out of 5 stars, saying that Born to Die is "beautifully turned pop music, which is more than enough", with most melodies "constructed magnificently", while also stating that Del Rey "doesn't have the lyrical equipment to develop a persona throughout the album."[68] Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune gave a negative review, and highly criticized the repetitive production.[76][77]

Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone declared that the lyrics, with their "pop-trash perversity", were the strength of the album but that Del Rey had a voice that was “pinched and prim” and that she "wasn't ready to make an album yet". Sheffield rated the album 2 out of 5 and concluded, "given her chic image, it's a surprise how dull, dreary and pop-starved Born to Die is".[2] Allmusic gave the album two-and-a-half out of five, saying "There is a chasm that separates 'Video Games' from the other material and performances on the album, which aims for exactly the same target—sultry, sexy, wasted—but with none of the same lyrical grace, emotional power, or sympathetic productions... an intriguing start, but Del Rey is going to have to hit the books if she wants to stay as successful as her career promised early on".[66] Sputnikmusic disliked the album, saying "The worst thing about Born to Die is that even its great songs contain problems"[78] The Observer's Kitty Empire rated the album 3 out of 5 stars, and said that, unlike pop singers Lady Gaga and Katy Perry and their "hedonic outpourings", "Lana Del Rey's partying is fuelled by a knowing sadness, and sung in that laconic, hypnotic voice, which ultimately saves this thoroughly dissolute, feminist nightmare of a record for the romantics among us."[72]

The A.V. Club panned the album, calling it "Shallow and overwrought, with periodic echoes of Kesha's Valley Girl aloofness, the album lives down to the harshest preconceptions against pop music."[79] Randall Roberts of Los Angeles Times also noted that the singer's vocals have "so much potential and yet [are] unrefined", and said that despite having stand out tracks like "Summertime Sadness" and "Dark Paradise", listening to the album "has become tiring and woozy, like if you'd taken a half-dozen Ambiens when you'd put the record on – and now you’re getting very, very sleepy."[70] Pitchfork's Lindsay Zoladz gave the album 5.5/10, and commented: "The album's point of view—if you could call it that—feels awkward and out of date... [it] never allows tension or complexity into the mix, and its take on female sexuality ends up feeling thoroughly tame. For all of its coos about love and devotion, it's the album equivalent of a faked orgasm—a collection of torch songs with no fire."[25] NME gave a positive review, giving the album 8/10 and saying "Although it's not quite the perfect pop record 'Video Games' might have led us to wish for, Born To Die still marks the arrival of a fresh—and refreshingly self-aware—sensibility in pop."[80]
