It was a little sad that Lana Del Rey didn’t get a top ten hit in America until someone made a dance remix of a song that had already charted across Europe an entire year before. But a hit’s a hit, right? Following the success of “Summertime Sadness,” Delegend is ready to return to the top of the charts once again with the official Cedric Gervais remix of “Young & Beautiful.”
The remix was first premièred back in July, but in a feature article on Billboard.com, Gervais revealed that they’re holding off on officially promoting it until closer to awards season (the Oscars and Grammys are held in February, FYI).
Co-written by Nowels and Del Rey, “Summertime Sadness” first appeared on Del Rey’s 2012 album “Born To Die” and was even released as a single in Europe that year. While Gervais was also asked to rework “Young and Beautiful,” the featured single from The Great Gatsby, promotion for that track is being held until awards season this winter.
This is amazing. Not only does the Cedric Gervais remix of “Young & Beautiful” shit on the “Summertime Sadness” remix, but THE DALAI LAMA IS COMING FOR THAT OSCAR!!! And GRAMMY!
Now when are we gonna get a remix for “Cola”?
