Chart Check: Lana Del Rey Got ‘High’ On Hot 100…For A Limited Time

Published: Wednesday 19th Aug 2015 by Rashad

Simply put:  Lana Del Rey is was winning.

Courtesy of the warm reception to her latest “trap-pop” single ‘High By the Beach,’ the first release from her forthcoming LP ‘Honeymoon’ (Sept. 18), the singer-songwriter was greeted by a number of reasons to celebrate including:

  • 2nd highest debut of 2015 on the Hot 100
  • Her second top 10 single on the Hot 100
  • Highest debut of her career on the Hot 100
  • Highest first week sales of her career

Reported as moving an impressive 248,000 digital downloads its first week of release, the song’s accompanying music video would’ve also helped hoist it to top 10 glory with nearly 7 million streams in less than 5 days (as of time reporting).

But, just as Rey and team began popping bubbly to celebrate the aforementioned, Billboard retracted the stats with a crushing update that revealed her digital download numbers were barely a fourth of the originally touted figure.

First forecasted to debut at #7, tuck in below to see where she landed on this week’s Hot 100 and see The Weeknd‘s continued domination…

  4. DEL BEY August 19, 2015

    Shame on Billboard for their inability to accurately report stats, aren’t they meant to be a respected source? Oh well… Honeymoon comes out a week after my birthday and I am hereeeeeeeeeeeeeee for it. Ready for my queen to take me to the underworld and snatch my edges.

  6. Centurion August 19, 2015

    LMAO! I don’t know why I find this funny but it is. ???? ???? ???? ????

  7. Stephy August 19, 2015

    JESUS! Her music is so depressing!!! “All I Wanna Do Is Get High By The Beach”. Damn, I be trying my hardest to get into this chicks music… But, LAWWWWWWWWD all I wanna do is KILL my damn self after I’m done listening….
    Anyways, congrats on her success. She appeals to those depressed, mad at the world, weirdo WHITE (wanna be white black) people/teens. Those kind of people you see walking around with a bunch of piercings in their ears & nose. And, always complains about how life isn’t fair & that they want to die and/or live on another planet.

    • DEL BEY August 19, 2015

      You’re stereotyping Stephy, we not all mad at the world and have piercings, some of us just love her delicate tone that makes you feel like your’e in a disney movie

      • Stephy August 19, 2015

        Disney? Are you serious? Honey, that voice sounds like death. And, the lyrics are even more depressing. She’s too whinny & sad for my taste. And, I said what I said, period. Bye

    • DEL BEY August 19, 2015

      Ohh and makes you feel like you want to kill yourself? well suicidal tendencies are common among people with multifaceted personality disorders. The poor lambs had to deal with all that flip flopping

      • Stephy August 19, 2015

        I am NOT a lamb. And, you ain’t talking about nothing. Bye.

  8. Centurion August 19, 2015

    Such a fad. ???? ???? ????

  9. Stephy August 19, 2015

    And, Billboard is so f****** messy. They’ve been like this for YEAR tho. I heard, they would have to fire certain workers…. Cause, they would do things to make their “favs” songs chart better. Lol.

  10. Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 August 19, 2015

    Lmao what kind of faddery is this? A gaga lead single would a beyonce lead single would never, a rihanna lead single would never, a damn bieber lead single would never

    • DEL BEY August 19, 2015

      And CL will never possess authentic style or artistry. Oops

      • Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 August 19, 2015

        And why is that?

      • DEL BEY August 19, 2015

        Because the b**** ain’t got an original bone in her being, where’s the innovation?

      • Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 August 19, 2015

        Ironic since you stan for a thief hahaha

  11. Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 August 19, 2015

    Haha I stopped reading when I read “disney”.
    Proves the lanaholics are 12.

    • DEL BEY August 19, 2015

      Miss me with that ish, if only South Korea knew how to actually invent original entertainment, ya’ll ain’t even got s*** on Disney

      • Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 August 19, 2015

        I’m not gonna sit here and talk about what south Korea does or does not do. We are on a lana post and when lanaholics can’t defend lana with lana facts, they try to throw in a tangent to steer off from her. Bye flop

      • DEL BEY August 19, 2015

        But hun you need to take a stadium of seats before you try criticize a multi platinum selling artist. When CL and the rest of the entire Kpop genre can stop jacking western style then we can speak my dear. Until then, go continue stanning for the watered-down generic mess you call music.

      • Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 August 19, 2015

        Since you’re 12, you probably never heard of GLOBALISATION. So i’ll forgive your disney, 12 year old ignorance.

  12. What now August 19, 2015


    • Keri Qween August 19, 2015

      • Keri Qween August 19, 2015

        What a fool she is

  13. Keri Qween August 19, 2015


    Billboard trolled the hell out of plastic del rey and her delusional stans

    • Slay_Hive August 19, 2015

      Does Billboard even know a Keri? ???? biitch stfu with your self dragging

      • Keri Qween August 19, 2015


        She has written multiple certified singles and she has several certified solo singles to her name as well

        Why wouldn’t they know her? Do you know where your hairline starts you bald headed b****?

      • Slay_Hive August 19, 2015

        Lmao biitch list these certified singles because I don’t remember ONE and apparently neither does Billboard. Retire that tired ass hairline read. It’s repetitive and pathetic at this point! Don’t be jelly because I look better than you boo. Take your anger out on god for conceiving you thru an ape. Ugly fat and black t*****!

      • Keri Qween August 19, 2015

        Kill yourself baldy ????????????
        Turning me on and pretty girl rock were both platinum and knock you down was 2x platinum f** So like i said..why wouldn’t they now her? She’s also been featured on and written successful songs as well

        And I WILL NOT retire the hairline drag its a fact your a bald headed b**** with a struggle hairline. We’ve seen the picture f@@@g can’t deny facts

      • Slay_Hive August 19, 2015

        LMAOOO All your blrd brain ass could come up with is three basic singles that had no impact on pop culture and wasn’t enough to get her a platinum album back when it was EASY?!!???????? They don’t know her boo and neither does the GP, judging by the poor performance and response from her new music! You’re the only dumb ass fan she has left. Two nobodies! You need to retire that hairline read because its beyond tired but I expect nothing less from a tired insecure biitch. Since you won’t post your selfie, I’ll post it for you! Fat jealous t*****!????

    • Barb B**** August 19, 2015

      Lana 1 albun thats outsold Keris ENTIRE discography though.

  14. Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 August 19, 2015

    Praying lana doesn’t listen to her own music after getting this news…

  15. Molly #September4thSurprise August 19, 2015

    Just terrible billboard played tf outta lana and her stans…. Im sure Queen Rosie isn’t bothered tho.

  16. Bloop August 19, 2015

    1. The song didn’t have a full week of sales
    2. It leaked 2 days prior
    3. No promotion or radio play
    Take in those 3 points and it doesn’t seem so bad.
    Besides, Lana doesn’t care about chart positions. She cares about making music for her fans. She writes her own music, doesn’t lip sync, can actually sell an album, and doesn’t have to sit half naked on a stool to get attention. Can you say the same about your fave?
    Girl bye…

  17. Suicide Blonde August 19, 2015

    She don’t care about chart positions or record sales, that’s one of the many reasons why i love her, her music is too good to be in that chart sharing positions with those mediocre artists. She’s marvelous to me, a dream come true, the music is just beautiful, she has become my 2nd favorite female artist, there is magic in her music, the thing is that no matter how good the Caviar is, its taste won’t be appreciated by everyone.
    Plays: Honeymoon

  18. Selenator*Good For You* August 19, 2015

    Selena’s record for highest 1st week sales for a female artist and biggest debut are intact

    • ENOUGH ONIKA August 19, 2015


  19. JOHNVIDAL August 19, 2015

    I don´t understand how this difference could happen?
    Anyway, the music is the important thing (not crazy about this her newest release though).
    But yeah it´s kind of funny just the thought of @Rosie receiving this news 🙂

  20. OMG Logic!!! August 19, 2015

    Not gonna lie, this b1tch looks good. Her lips are looking more natural and causing her facial features to stand out more. She needs some evolution to her sound though.

  21. @JanetCIARA_ August 20, 2015

    LMAO, OMG Poor Rosie & Del Bey ….
