  Elizabeth Grant, widely known as Lana Del Rey, is a female alternative-pop artist with many popular songs available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and other streaming platforms. Grant’s most famous songs include “Summertime Sadness,” “Young and Beautiful,” and “Born to Die.” 

  Del Rey’s music provides a calming yet upbeat feel to listeners. Many refer to Del Rey’s music as tranquil and even heavenly. Compared to other popular artists in this time period, Del Rey definitely has some of the most unique music. 

  Many of Del Rey’s songs explore topics of love, lust, and tragedy. With lyrics like “Think I’ll miss you forever, like the stars miss the sun in the morning sky,” “If you hold me without hurting me, you’ll be the first who ever did,” and “Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful,” Del Rey’s music displays a story of tragic love. 

  Many songs of Del Rey’s have been popularized on TikTok, a social media platform that specializes in short creative videos. Del Rey’s music isn’t for everyone, however many can enjoy the short, 15 second audios available on TikTok.
