With another tune off her upcoming studio release Norman F---ing Rockwell, Interscope’s Lana Del Rey has a new single with a fairly wordy title: “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have - but I have it”. (Say that five times fast.) Luckily, this new cut won’t be in danger of underperforming: as of the latest update, the single currently sits at #8 on iTunes here in the U.S., as it reaches the all-genre list in just over 60 countries globally. Including its peak on the U.S. chart, the tune ranked in the top ten in a total of 38 countries at the platform, which also includes similar peaks in countries like Norway, Sweden and The Netherlands. Playlisting on the major services is limited for the moment, though “hope” can be found in the top spot on Spotify’s personalized This Is: Lana Del Rey list, as well as Apple Music’s Breaking Alternative list. With a day or so of data recorded, the release has almost 567,000 streams at the former. On YouTube, an audio-only upload for it has steadily climbed over 650,000 views. It’s also encountering some minor action on Shazam, clearing 3,500 tags with no U.S. airplay thus far. Will the singer’s latest preview of her highly-anticipated album prove to be this era’s biggest hit yet? We can “hope” so.
