With “Honeymoon,” Lana Del Rey reaches 1 billion streams.
Honeymoon, the record by American singer Lana Del Rey, has now been played a billion times. This is the fifth record of hers to do this. Honeymoon is her fourth solo album, and it came out in September 2015. The record moved away from the heavier guitar instrumentals on her last album, Ultraviolet, and instead focused on baroque pop. When the record came out, critics liked it, and many people thought it was her best work up to that point. Not only did it end up on several “Best Album” lists, but it was also a big hit in places like Ireland, Greece, and Australia. It was also in the top five of the charts in more than twenty countries, including the US, where it opened at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
