Lana Del Rey Scans Gold With ‘Young & Beautiful’ / Miley Cyrus’ ‘We Can’t Stop’ Goes Platinum

Published: Wednesday 17th Jul 2013 by David

500,000 units.

The above figure will no doubt be of significance to Lana Del Rey today, as its the number of copies her sleeper hit ‘Young & Beautiful’ has sold thus far, earning it Gold status in the market.

Full story below…

Released on April 23rd 2013, the Rick Nowels produced effort was launched as part of the soundtrack for Warner Bros‘ ‘The Great Gatsby’, starring ‘Django Unchained‘ star Leonardo Dicaprio.

Upon its arrival, it moved a modest 48,000 units but has since gone on to receive a Gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of over 500,000 units- achieved without ever feeling the warmth of the Billboard Hot 100’s Top Ten.

Thus far, the number has peaked at #22 on the tally, after being sent to Top 40 radio on May 21st helping its total sales reach the 530,000 unit mark, becoming her first US Top 40 single despite the acclaim she scored with its predecessors ‘Born To Die’, ‘Video Games’ and the ‘Paradise’ piece, ‘Ride‘.

Elsewhere- in wilder territory- Miley Cyrus celebrates the Platinum status achieved by her new single ‘We Can’t Stop‘, which now holds court with sales of 1,103,000 units!

Securing the star her 8th million selling single, the club ready cut achieved the feat in less than six weeks, making it one of the fastest selling releases of the year, peaking at #3 on the Hot 100 and produced Mike Will Made It, also responsible for Rihanna‘s Platinum jam ‘Pour It Up’ and 2013’s highest rising R&B release, ‘Body Party‘- recorded by Ciara.

Well done to all!

    • Rosie July 17, 2013

      What’s really ironic is the fact that you, out of all the posters on this site, are conning someone else a troll.

  11. Rosie July 17, 2013

    Slaying with barely any US support, Brits, Echos, EMAs, multiple magazine covers, many endorsements, and now even the US is warming up to her with Summertime Sadness set to debut on Hot 100 tomorrow, top 50 on iTunes, getting radio play, and two VMA nominations. Queen.

    • FutureCIARA July 18, 2013

      Delusional much, We already have a Katy Perry….

      DelTaco wont succeed over here….

    • QWUEERRN CAN WERQ July 19, 2013

    The single only sold that much due to the Great Gasby promo. PIU slayed without ANY promo 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 1 million with no video, no promo.When will these h***???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    • Rosie July 17, 2013

      But tons of payola. Didn’t it hit #1 on Urban? Expected since it was a direct ripoff of Bandz A Make Her Dance. Rihfund can never be original.

      • ABC July 17, 2013

        Take that up with Mike WiLL Made It d***.

      • RihBoy July 17, 2013

        B**** shut up…the idea of pour it up was the of mike will…he thought it would work for Rihanna…..the unoriginal one is thiefonce in all her thieving glory………so please stop…it doesnt matter if PIU didnt become number stated above no promotion it did exceptionally well……. so please slumber on a landing strip at jfk please.

      • Rosie July 17, 2013

        Why did she work with Mike WiLL in the first place? He was already the #1 producer in hip hop so of course she would run to him for a hit. Like I said, w**** could never be original.

      • RihBoy July 17, 2013

        Just sit in your bitter world …of flopping faves…..and shut up.

  14. Meena July 17, 2013

    Yes Lana , I love Young and Beautiful . I can’t wait for her new stuff.

    • ATM JAM July 19, 2013


  15. MC July 17, 2013

    I don’t see ‘Right Now’ in this post, a pop single that was actually released to radio a while ago.
    Congrats to Lana and Miley.

  16. Trinarockstarr July 17, 2013

    I can`t even hate on Lana but I still don`t know who she is…

    • Trinarockstarr July 17, 2013


    • Rosie July 17, 2013

  17. cake like lady gaga July 17, 2013

    I love Beyoncé!

  18. cake like lady gaga July 17, 2013

    Lana slaying my fave, Lady Gaga, effortlessly.

    • ATM JAM July 17, 2013

      you aren’t even a gaga fan, @ROSIE when will you learn to give up and go on a world wide search for your father?

      • Rosie July 17, 2013

        That’s not me, but nice try. Anyways where is A*** Jam on iTunes?

  19. Rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 17, 2013

    Mike will is killing it! I love Miley video; it is amazing, really kooky. Lana is doing her thing. Beyonce has a song on the great gasby, but they did not release it cos we all know it will flop. In fact, Beyonce duet with Jay z, is flopped. The only hit from MCHG is the duet with JT.

    Sam, I just checked ciara LP updates, ciara is done in the music industry. This is the chart for next week:

    Jay z number 1

    Sara Barelies – 60 – 65

    Kidz bop kids – 60 – 65

    Cody simpson – 28- 32K

    Ace hood – 28 – 32

    matt nathanson – 20 – 24
    sick pupies – 15 – 18k

    teen beach movie – 17 – 17

    Ciara is now at 35 on itunes, so I do not even think she will 100 copies next week. It looks like the total of her LP will be 58k- She will not even sell 60k copies. She was already dropped dropped jive; she is near 30; been around for 10 years to long – she peaked in 2006 IMO. She is black and does RNB – BAD RNB at that ( not like her music is like the weeknd – the best RNB act since Alicia keys debut.

    IT is over for CIARA. LA will let her go after she gets back from her summer vacation, which she is currently on now.

    • Rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 17, 2013

      For all those ( lovebird ) who will run here screaming personal insults at me – LIKE A FOX NEWS JOURNALIST, ID O NOT GIVE A S***. This is the evidence – remember that word? AND SHE WILL NOT even sell 60k of her album at this rate, hence why she will be dropped for teh second time.

      • Lovebird ( Bow out b****!!!!) July 17, 2013

        Did I hurt you that bad babe? You seem so pressed with me lol.

        Honey, EVERYONE hurls insults at you and you single me out lol. Don’t worry about Ciara, she’s doing fine with a 40% increase from her last album’s sales, that’s a win, shows her marketing is working and I’m certain her label is happy with these results.

        You guys keep on bullying Ciara who’s done nothing wrong but make great music, what has Ciara ever done to anyone to get the amount of hate you hurl at her?

        And lastly babe, you’re not in a position to talk about “personal insults” when you brought Ciara’s race into this, that’s an oxymoron.

    • Rosie July 17, 2013

      Kiii. She’ll be out of the HDD top 40 by the end of the month.

      • FutureCIARA July 18, 2013

        B**** please!
        Nice try…

        But this is ONLY the beginning of CIARA and her new era!

        She was just initiated, And if you know anything about the industry, you will know that this album is a cornerstone album for Ciara and it needed to happen, just like “4” for Bey, and “RatedR” for Ri.

        You girls just cant take, and are trying to not recognize the fact that she has a stage presence and gift about her that NOBODY can deny.

        Shes in demand for her market, all she needs now is for the ICONIC MS.JACKSON to hand over her tourch and let Ciara storm!

        You b****** just scared!

        But the BEST of Ciara is coming in the near future!
        BODY PARTY has been nominated for the MTV VMA’s for #BestCoreo and IM OUT debuted at #54 in the UK…..

        She not slowing down, shes speeding up. But she thanks yall for the #PRESS…

        Im sure you’ll be watching her slay the VMA’s in August!
        Will your fav?

  20. mildred July 17, 2013

    Oh pls what has beyonce got to do with this post, insure navys just can’t miss a chance of calling beyonce name on any post. I guess they are jealouse that she does not need to release songs every year to stay relevant.looooool

  21. Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013

    Lana Del Rey is LIFE, black people always try to deduct the skills of White female singers, she’s not talented, she’s a w****, blah, blah, blah, the only talented ones are black female singers, right!…oh wait, except when one of them overshadows the most worshiped black singer of the new millennium.

    Live fast. Die young. Be wild. and have fun, make your life a work of Art

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 17, 2013

      Cannot believe you just said that. smh

      • Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013

        I say what?

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 17, 2013

        You always bring race into the issue.

      • Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013

        Me, you must be kidding right?

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 17, 2013

        Yes, I am talking about you Paula Deen

      • Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013

        I’m no here 4 your meltdowns.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 17, 2013

        Metldowns? I am trying to help you.

    • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 17, 2013

      And you, somehow, know the minds of EVERY ‘Black Person’ in the United States of America and of the entire African diaspora?

      Come on Babe… You’re better than that. *Sigh*

      • Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013

        Stop acting like you know the minds of every black person in the US and AFRICA while trying to defend them, i know you are into blacks’ but is true, you should see both sides instead of choose one just because is less privileged.

      • DOSSOME July 17, 2013

        What’s wrong Blondie?2 consecutive threads on TGJ & all you did was complain about blacks and what blacks do/think…

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 17, 2013

        I don’t ‘pretend’, nor ‘act, to know the minds of every ‘Black person’ in America and of the entire African diaspora and I have never claimed such a thing. Also, me being, primarily, attracted to Black guys has absolutely nothing to do with it. I’m White and I will never know of the ‘Black experience’ but that doesn’t mean that I can’t sympathize/empathize with it.

        Anyway, are you seriously going to tell me that you’d be shocked if somebody were to tell you that the comment in which you’ve just made couldn’t be construed as a ‘biased, racial generalization’ and, to an extent, quite ‘prejudiced’?

        I know you never meant any harm Hon… 😉

      • Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013


        You better slow down with me 🙂

    • The Boy Toy July 17, 2013

      C’mon suicide. Sure, most of us blacks have a preference when it comes to singers and a lot of whites don’t fit it….but don’t try to make it seem like we have some sort of hostility towards them!!! Everything you said is basically what people say about Rih (a black woman) everyday. And how do you know that everyone saying negative stuff about Lana are black? Most people on here only bash her because of Rosie and her constant negativity.

      • Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013

        Is no only with lana, hence my comment.

      • The Boy Toy July 17, 2013

        Who else could you possibly be talking about? Taylor Swift? If ANYTHING, a black person would uplift a white artist before their own. Especially if the white person has a “soulful voice”. I need examples.

    • PYTFROMAL July 17, 2013

      Bigoted moron.

      • Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013

        F**ck U.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 17, 2013

        @Suicide… is, most definitely, not a ‘bigot’. I do not think it’s fair to say that, at all. He is lovely.

        ‘Racially Biased’ at times, yes, that I would thoroughly agree with, and he may feed into ‘Racial Stereotypes’ at times but certainly not “bigoted”.


      • Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013

        OK Jared, i see u.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 17, 2013


        Well, of course you see me. I am right there in my avatar.


        No, I’m kidding. But, you know I love you… But please, watch what you say or else people on this site will come for you in your sleep. 😉 🙂 😉

      • Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013

        You are new here, i could say all the good things you can imagine and still they hate me, lol.

    • Lovebird ( Bow out b****!!!!) July 17, 2013

      This is tasteless, racist, false and uncalled for. You always insist on making yourself sound like a bigot.

      It’s getting increasingly difficult to give you the benefit of the doubt.

      • Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013

        And you insist on making yourself sound smart, btw, what doubt are you talking about?

      • Lovebird ( Bow out b****!!!!) July 17, 2013

        You know exactly what I’m talking about.

        I always place more respect on your opinions mostly because of your passion for artists like Madonna but whenever you enter the realm of bigotry, I feel ashamed that I ever had any respect for you.

        To put it simply, stop making yourself look like an ass.

      • Suicide Blonde July 17, 2013

        I feel ashamed that I ever had any respect for you

        OKAY, So sorry, but I can’t apologise for something that i feel wasn’t racist, i am mystified, i’ve never been bad to you and i won’t be no matter if you just called me an asshole.

    • Lou July 17, 2013

      Oh… Have you got a gripe with black people today or something? Saying like they might act like they’re back in jungle first on the other post, now this.

      • Lou July 17, 2013

        saying that*

  22. cake like lady gaga July 17, 2013

    Hey ‘Rita and Beyoncé scared of Rihanna’, why is ‘Right Now’ flopping so bad? It can’t be found no where. Where is it? Can’t you help me find it? Don’t worry I’ll give you a minute to take your meds before we start our search.

  23. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 17, 2013

  28. Lovebird ( Bow out b****!!!!) July 17, 2013

    I only respect Lana as a song writer, as far as I’m concerned, she’s a fake manufacturered fraud who cannot and should not get the respect talented ARTISTS like Paloma Faith get.

    Everything about her from her face, her name, her singing and lack of capabilities to her personality is FAKE. I cannot respect someone that fake, not here for her, only when she writes good songs for Cheryl Cole.

    • Rosie July 17, 2013

      Who the f*** is Paloma Faith? Never heard of her.

    Okay girls, Who is this Lampa del rat b**** and why does her lips look twisted like she’s had a stroke?

    • Rosie July 17, 2013

      Why does your fave look like it was ran over by rush hour traffic h**?

  31. Lovebird ( Bow out b****!!!!) July 17, 2013

    Those lips are as pressed as a granny’s wig on Sunday.

    • Rosie July 17, 2013

      The flop b**** in your avi looks like one of the Clydesdales in the Budweiser commercials.

      Not a Moo stan calling anyone’s music boring.

      • QUEENRIAH July 17, 2013

        Not a ‘Joan Rivers’ stan coming for a ‘Queen’ whose net worth even surpasses your faves’ plastic surgery bills…

      • Rosie July 17, 2013

        Does Moo need that money for her liposuction? Cause she sure can use it.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 17, 2013

        Not as much as Lana needs an intervention.

      • Rosie July 17, 2013

        More drunk jokes. If you want to make jokes about Lana being alcoholic then i can make jokes about Moo being a mentally unstable cow that just got dropped by her label since that event was more recent than Lana being an alcoholic.
        The lambs are so lame, if Moo is such a legend then why is both Young & Beautiful and Summertime Sadness doing better than #Uglee on iTunes worldwide?

      • QUEENRIAH July 17, 2013

        B****, please…….

        How many surgeries has Joan had thus far?

        And yet she still can’t find one that may help her sing on key?


      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 17, 2013

        Which label did Mariah “just” get dropped from?

        @SLAYRIAH Babe you didn’t hear the T? Mariah thinking bout leaving island def jam according to Wendal Williams shes leaving because she feels like the label didnt promote beautiful well.

        Yes, I heard about that but her team denied those claims. + the reports stated that she is LEAVING the label not being DROPPED as that tired b**** Rosie was trying to say. It’s nice to know that she keeps up with Mimi cause I really don’t hear much about Lama outside this blog.

    Meanwhile Come & Get It was named 2x platinum, Selena’s second multi-platinum single. How long did it take Screami Fatvato’s Heart Failure to go 2x platinum lol!! These h*** can’t keep up with Selena 😀 They need twerking tactics and sympathy buys to keep their careers going.
