Listen to Lana Del Rey, ‘Hit and Run’

Yet another Lana Del Rey song has leaked (get a tighter lid on those things, girl!). On ‘Hit and Run,’ the puffy-pouted chanteuse croons a narrative about what it takes to make it in show business.

The song begins with a Neptunes-style beat so futuristic and sparse that it almost just sounds like someone playing ‘Pong.’ The instrumentation picks up as the song goes on, with an almost tropical, tribal vibe — then closes out on the ‘Pong’ notes.

With her lyrics, Del Rey paints a picture of a powerful exec who uses the same hopeful starlets who try using him. “Hail the king of the industry players / Take off your business suit,” Del Rey sings, “Sitting on your lap for my interview.” This may be one of the first pop songs by a woman that’s dedicated to the infamous casting couch phenomenon.

The song doesn’t appear on ‘Born to Die,’ nor on its upcoming, expanded ‘Born to Die: The Paradise Edition,’ but that doesn’t mean fans won’t drool over it. LDR has an enormous catalog, and some of her “throwaway” tracks are her best!
