When Lana is reduced to tears at a Dublin performance in 2013 singing "Video Games", the audience takes over for her. Then she continues the rest of the performance. The connection between Lana and the audience has to be seen to be believed.
"Love," while still having a somber, serene sound to it, has surprisingly sweet and wistful lyrics compared to her other work.
I get ready, I get all dressed up to go nowhere in particular. It doesn't matter if I'm not enough for the future or the things to come, 'cause I'm young, and in love.
The same could be said for "The Lucky Ones."
Every now and then the stars align, boy and girl meet by the great design. Could it be, that you and me are the lucky ones this time?
"Lust for Life" with The Weeknd
The audio video shows Lana and Abel sitting on the edge of the Hollywood sign while holding hands.
In general, what we've seen on the album so far, from the title track to the cover, seems to indicate that this'll be a bit happier than Lana's previous work. Fans have definitely picked up on this, and have responded very positively to it, happy to hear some hopeful and lovelorn lyrics from Lana's songs. As one fan put it, "She's gonna cure the depression she gave us."
And now the official video is out and it's more heartwarming then ever. There's an especially touching moment when Lana runs to the edge of the platform she's standing on and nearly falls off, looking apprehensive... and immediately relaxes and smiles when Abel comes up behind her and hugs her.
"Groupie Love" with A$AP Rocky
The whole song is sincerely cute lovesong with no tragic/ironic elements, and A$AP gives a major heartwarming moment when he ad libs "you are my babe" on the final chorus
A$AP and Lana are close friends and the song plays on the idea that they both like watching each other succeed as artists.
