See where the artist ranks among remaining singers


Up to now, Unorthodox Jukebox by Bruno MarsTake Me Home by One Direction and Red by Taylor Swift were the biggest albums from 2012 we have studied so far, in this order, with sales ranging from 10 to 13 million equivalent album sales – please notice Night Visions by Imagine Dragons hasn’t been studied as yet.

Born to Die belongs to the same category of smash albums. The aforementioned albums are showing good consistency too, but not nearly as much as Lana‘s classic record, which may climb higher and higher on this hierarchy from now on.

This success overshadows her other albums. Ultraviolence struggles to pass 2 million, Honeymoon is lucky to be over 1 million while Lust for Life still has a lot of work to do before getting anywhere close. All in all, these results are really negative.

Adding orphan songs also, Lana Del Rey is up to 15,5 million equivalent album sales.

The following pages list her most successful songs as well as her records and achievements. Do not forget to check our amazing cross-artists lists posted inside the CSPC: Data Collector which includes the full listing of all CSPC results compiled so far to better gauge her position in the history of the music industry.

Her sales are honestly really impressive for an artist that is considered by a lot of people to have few hits, Born To Die probably added another 500k pure sales since this update and is currently outstreaming nearly every pre-streaming era albums(it’s doing over 2,5m daily streams on spotify for some time), apart from actual monsters like Teenage Dream and Doo-Woops & Hooligans. Ultraviolence is the real surprise for me though, when it released it had almost a 80% drop from btd and now it’s doing around 1,5m daily streams, almost the same as albums that were released in the… Read more »

Hello?? When is the update???

Lana truly deserves an update as well as a re-evaluation of the comments. In the last update in 2017, it looked like she was a one-album wonder with no consistency. Now I believe her numbers are much healthier with her first five albums over the 2M mark (unless I’m mistaken) indicating a stable fanbase. Ultraviolence has also impressed on streaming, well over 3M units now and not as nasty a drop from Born to Die as it was at first.
