Official music video for the track Blue Jeans by Lana Del Rey.
Lana Del Rey official music video for Blue Jeans. Blue Jeans is a song performed by Lana Del Rey.
This is the steamy new music video for Blue Jeans, the thirds single from the starlet’s album 2012 album Born To Die. The video depicts Lana in a dreamy black and white film scene entangled with a heavily tattooed love interest while bathing in a swimming pool. The male figure in the scene is actor and model Bradley Soileau, the same actor who co-starred in her video for the single Born To Die. There has been much speculation over the suggestive content of the video, particularly regarding one point in the scene where it appears that the singer is being strangled by her lover. Blue Jeans has a minimalist hip-hop beat that brings to mind the music of artist Timbaland and draws upon Lana Del Rey’s eclectic musical influences. The “self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra” also tries her hand at rapping in the song, rhyming out the lines "You’re so fresh to death and sick as cancer/Love you more than those bitches before". Lana Del Rey is known for her retro-chic style and varied musical sensibilities, citing Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain and Britney Spears as her main musical influences. Despite receiving mixed reviews from the critics, Born to Die has proven to be a huge commercial success, selling 50,000 copies in the UK on its first day of release and debuting at #1 in the UK albums Chart.
