Lana Del Rey: Chart ratings mean nothing

Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey isn’t motivated by chart ratings.

The 28-year-old singer released her third studio album Ultraviolence last month.

The LP topped UK album charts after it reached audiences, but Lana isn’t concerned about numerical ratings.

“It’s not about it being number one,” she explained in an interview with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe.

“I think it’s about it being received in the right way and people really liking it.

“Usually I don’t really care [about chart ratings], I don’t think too much about it [success], but I’m really, really grateful.”

Lana feels it’s important to pursue true passions.

If at any time she decides music is no longer something she wants to be involved in, the songstress claims she’d happily move on to something new.

“I would feel at any point in my life that it was never too late to just sort of switch into any different lane or any different vein, you know, just to kind of be free enough to sort of explore things,” she shared.

“I think that being worried about whether or not you’re ever going to make money, I think that trips people up a lot.”

The West Coast singer is thought to have recently split from her boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill after three years together.

However, it seems Lana has been distracting herself with rumored new beau Francesco Carrozzini. She and the Vogue photographer were spotted in Italy earlier this month looking loved up as they kissed and whispered in each other’s ears.
