Lana del Rey has achieved enormous success thanks to a great voice, and her love for poetry has made her a queen of her compositions. Find out the details of how she reached her current net worth.
Lana Del Rey was born Elizabeth Woolridge Grant on June 21, 1985. 35 years later, and according to the latest estimates from Celebrity Net Worth, she’s worth the grand total of $30 million.
After graduating from Kent School, Lana moved in with her aunt and uncle on Long Island. It was there that she started learning the guitar and writing her own lyrics.
Soon, she was performing in bars and clubs across New York City. A couple of years later, she released her first EP.
In 2011, Lana uploaded a music video she’d made for Video Games to YouTube. The mix of vintage footage intercepted with images of Lana crooning to the camera clearly captured the public imagination, and the video swiftly went viral.
Her first album with the label, Born to Die, divided the critics but went down a storm with fans. Selling 3.4 million copies in 2012 alone, it soared to the top spot in 11 countries and spent a massive 36 weeks on the Billboard 200 in the US.
Her third album, Paradise, charted at number 10 on the Billboard 200 after 67,000 copies were sold in the first week alone. Ultraviolence topped the charts internationally, while 2017’s Lust for Life went to number one in both the US and UK. Her sixth album, Norman F*****g Rockwell! (2019), fared similarly well.
In total, she’s now sold 19.1 million albums and over 13 million singles worldwide. Combine that with 4.1 billion YouTube and Vevo views, not to mention a string of awards a mile long (including two Brit Awards, two MTV Europe Music Awards, a Satellite Award, nine GAFFA Awards, six Grammy Award nominations, and a Golden Globe nomination) and you start to see the reason for that $30 million.
She’s also made a whack from modeling (one of her biggest campaigns was for the fashion store H&M) and from the property, having sold her Malibu residence in 2018 for a hefty $3.2 million.
