Lana Del Rey & The Weeknd’s Dreamy “Lust For Life” Video: Watch
Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd‘s new “Lust for Life” video is the stuff of dreams. Lana begins as the lead singer of a Shangri-Las-style girl group, before she suddenly runs away from the set. From there she climbs up the infamous Hollywood sign in Los Angeles, glowing as it did during the ’50s. And she finds the Abel, her new Prince Charming, and slow dances on top of the H — her new home, according to the Lust for Life album trailer — underneath the stars.
The “Lust for Life” video also has moments that recall The Wizard of Oz, from her red slippers to the final moments in a field of flowers.
Lana and The Weeknd have become musical soulmates, as heard during the latter’s Beauty Behind the Madness. In a new interview with KROQ, Lana recalled how that mutual respect was formed long before then.
“He’s kind of the reason I was ever on the radio like six years ago,” she said. “He started posting all my videos on his Tumblr and social media. He’s been in touch with me ever since then. He’s always been really supportive. He had his own path, which led him to this place that’s crazy big. But we’ve just been friends for maybe the past six years.”
