Lana Del Rey – “Afraid” & “Playing Dangerous”

With another day come some more previously unheard music from Lana Del Rey. While yesterday's leaked tune "Big Bad Wolf" came as a surprise to many, today sees two new songs from the songstress surfacing titled "Afraid" and "Playing Dangerous." The single "Afraid" comes as a more basic track, in comparison to previous tracks – highlighting the singer's vocals – while the song "Playing Dangerous" delivers a head-nodding drum pattern as Lana tells the story of her encounter with a police officer. Stream both down below and let us know which one you're feeling.

    word, second track is illy

  • Stefan Haynes

    Lana Del Rey is musical cancer. Definitely the most pungent thing the mainstream music industry has shat out lately. Let's pray it doesn't catch.

    second track is dope, big up to the producer, that that shit, throw a Jiay-Z verse on that, and presto you got a hit, Jig could weave in and out of this shit, but lowkey this a hit as is. I could see some dope visuals for this, I would grab, Colin Tilley, or the cat who shot the Drake and Rihanna video.

    Interesting self-censorship.

    Beyond her non-existent singing talent, boring melodies and grating, self-aggrandizing image (the "sexed-up Nancy Sinatra" shtick is the very definition of oxymoron), she's a prickish, manipulative corporate whore who is only enjoying so much exposure and success thanks to nepotism.

    Educate yourself before you buy into future UMG-manufactured plastic dolls, makeshit.

    Prickish? Hahahah ok you lost me. She's like the nicest person ever.

  • Stefan Haynes

    Did you know you can come across as nice and still be a "prick"? No, of course you didn't.

    I'd urge you to research her a bit more than her totalitarian record label is feeding you.

    lol her voice has a timeless quality to it. no matter how much you complain about her, she's still gonna sound good to a lot of people. get used to it.
