With Lana Del Rey, you’re always promised moody, sweet + sultry vocals as heard here in her new music video for ‘Lust For Life’ featuring The Weeknd. ‘Lust For Life’, the title track of her new album, with no release date in sight yet, beautifully envelopes the listener in a soft whispered kiss of lyrics, sung by both Del Rey + The Weeknd.
Opening with Del Rey singing on set, the camera follows her heels with lace ruffled ankle socks, to the top of the “H” of the Hollywood sign, which is a literal take on her opening lyrics:
Climb up the H of the Hollywood sign, yeah
In these stolen moments
The world is mine (doo wop, doo wop)
There’s nobody here, just us together (shadoop, shadoop)
Keepin’ me hot like July forever
Here, Del Rey meets up with The Weeknd who serenades her with his sweet + sexy voice which compliments hers so well during their chorus. They slowly dance into the end, where she slides off the Hollywood “D”, landing in a floral field right next to him.
Here’s to crossing my fingers the remixes are that much better!
