Unless you've been hiding under a rock somewhere, you probably know that Lana Del Rey's highly anticipated album, Born To Die, hit stores in the United States yesterday. Despite the harsh reviews it has received from some of music's most lauded critics, Del Rey's fanbase is showing that the LP is worth ingesting. Immediately after it went on sale Tuesday morning, Born To Die shot to No. 1 on iTunes and has been holding tight at the top spot since. Based on the way things are going, the album should debut at No. 2 on Billboard's Top 200 chart next week, outsold only by Adele's 21, which is predicted to top the charts for the 19th time since its February 2011 release. Although Billboard and HITS Daily Double are quoting different first week sales figures for Born To Die, with the former projecting 60,000-70,000 units and the latter projecting 55,000-60,000, things are looking bright for Del Rey nonetheless. Purchase Born To Die on iTunes and Amazon now.
