"Will You Still Love Me When I'm Not Longer Beautiful"

This is now the second track I've felt inclined to post off the upcoming Great Gatsby Soundtrack. It's probably a no-brainer to anyone reading this, but anything Jay-Z executive produces is probably going to succeed. This time around it's through the sultry vocals of Lana Del Rey, who continues to carve this strange, new-school Nancy Sinatra niche in pop culture. For the life of me, I still don't know why I like her music, but all signs point toward her ability to sound unique in a world full of formulaic copycats. I can't say it always works, but as a writer and reviewer of music, I feel like it's partly my job to award those who make a concerted effort to run in their own lane. At this point it's probably more bandwagony to wax poetic about Lana, but just know that deep down there's rationale behind my decision to consistently post her music...#Originality
