After releasing the beautiful single "Love" and a wonderfully witchy teaser for her new album, Lana Del Rey is back with another song titled "Lust for Life" (also the name of the album). "Lust for Life" features The Weeknd, with whom Lana collaborated on Starboy and Beauty Behind the Madness. Eagle-eyed LDR fans noticed the Weeknd's XO symbol in the Lust for Life teaser so the collaboration isn't exactly a surprise, but it's still a treat because their voices sound so nice together.
Lana is nothing if not consistent, because this song also references the Hollywood sign in the very first line: "Climb up the 'H' of the Hollywood sign." In the album teaser, she claimed to live inside the 'H' of the Hollywood sign, so in the universe of the song, she must have invited the Weeknd over to check out the views from her apartment. Fingers crossed the next Lust for Life single is about whatever spell she casts on him.
