Who better than Lana Del Rey to write and vocalize on the lead single, "Young and Beautiful" for THE GREAT GATSBY soundtrack. Sure, they could've picked 21st century Beyonce or auto-tuned Will.i.Am for lead single, but they decided to not fail hard and dumb-down the movie. Therefore, they correctly and wisely chose Lana's amazing, breezy, classy new score, "Young & Beautiful" to be the 1st single for the movie's soundtrack.
Talk about BIG things for Queen Del Rey! Be sure to check out the music video for the amazing song on 4/22 and to buy the song in full on iTunes 4/23 worldwide. Lana is and forever will be a massive part of my life and just hearing this snippet makes me wanna cry. Just finished this book in English class. What perfect timing, my dear Lana! GOD BLESS YOU ALL and props to you Miss Del Rey!
