It has been a good week for America’s most prolific chanteuse Lana Del Rey and her ardent fans as she hit the top spot in the official UK album chart for the FIFTH time.


The lady many a gay likes to obsess over/cry to, sold over 40k copies of the critically acclaimed Chemtrails Over The Country Club. It comes not long after her poetry collection Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass in 2020 and the stunning Grammy nominated album Norman Fucking Rockwell! in 2019.


So yes, that does mean that she’s now equalled Celine FUCKING Dion (if Norman Rockwell gets a middle name, so does Queen Celine) in her UK number 1 albums which is no mean feat.


Not content with this accolade alone, Chemtrails also became the fastest selling album OF THE CENTURY by a female artist with 16,700 records shifted. Pretty damn impressive laydeh.
