Lana Del Rey’s 10 Biggest Billboard Hits, From ‘Summertime Sadness’ to ‘Snow on the Beach’

Lana Del Rey was crowned Billboard‘s Visionary Award-winner at its 2023 Women in Music event — but the angel-voiced New York native had already been an alt-pop pioneer for over a decade at that point.

Born Elizabeth Grant, Del Rey has been challenging the norms of songwriting since the very beginning of her career, sometimes garnering controversy in the process. She’s known for pairing unflinching lyrics with sprawling, cinematic arrangements, exploring all corners of Americana’s sonic landscape from dreamy old Hollywood soundtracks to folksy Western elegies.

Lana earned her first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 when “Video Games,” the lead single to her 2012 debut album Born to Die, entered the chart at No. 91. From there, she would slowly work her way up the listing, earning her first top 10 hit in 2013 thanks to her timeless single “Summertime Sadness” peaking at No. 6 — a feat she wouldn’t top until nearly a decade later, when her “Snow on the Beach” duet with Taylor Swift would open at No. 4.

From her early 2010s debut to her 2024 headlining set at Coachella, keep reading to see the 10 biggest Hot 100 hits Lana Del Rey has scored so far over the course of her career.
