Only two other albums by women have notched at least 300 weeks on the chart: Carole King‘s 1971 record Tapestry (318 weeks) and Adele‘s 2011 record 21 (359 weeks).

Born to Die debuted on the Billboard 200 in February of 2012, and has since moved 3 million album equivalent units, with 1.5 million of those being traditional album sales.

Lana Del Rey Explains Why Radiohead Might Be Taking Her to Court

Lana Del Rey says she’s battling with Radiohead‘s lawyers over one song’s similarity.

The track in question, “Get Free,” is from Lana‘s latest studio album, 2017′s Lust For Life. Radiohead alleges that the song is too similar to their own hit, “Creep” – and they want 100% of the publishing, according to Lana.

“It’s true about the lawsuit. Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing – I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100. Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court,” she wrote on Twitter on Sunday (January 7).

Interestingly, Radiohead faced similar legal issues with “Creep” upon its release. After the band admitted the song shared similarities with The Hollies‘ “The Air That I Breathe,” they agreed to settle a lawsuit out of court with the songwriters, Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood, and give them a percentage of the song’s publishing.

Lana Del Rey Opens Up About the Meaning of Her 'Lust For Life'

Lana Del Rey is on the cover of Billboard‘s 2017 Year In Music issue, out on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 32-year-old “Lust For Life” singer had to say:

On the difference between her No. 1 album Lust For Life and her previous works: “I think a good word [to describe Lust for Life's shift in mood] would be ‘present’ – less from the outside looking in, and a more integrated perspective lyrically. I started writing the darker songs first: ‘Heroin,’ ‘Get Free,’ ’13 Beaches.’ Then, once I got to be cathartic in that way, I thought, ‘All right, now I want to invite my friends in.’”

On “Love”: It started as “Young and in Love,” but I didn’t really like that title; that wasn’t the point of the song. Then I worked with Sean Lennon. The Lennon legacy is so tied in to that one word. So I thought, ‘You know what? I just want to go for it.’ The whole record is pointing its little nose in that direction. And I liked that it was pretty literal — it felt nice and comfortable to not necessarily have layers to all of the singles. That one and ‘Lust for Life’ were kind of just about having fun.

On her creative process: “I wanted to see if [Lust for Life] would be heard for what it was really saying. Overall, from what I read, it was interpreted correctly. Which is a good sign for me: It means I’m not seeing things one way and the culture is seeing things the other way. That means you need to check yourself, and I don’t want to check myself. I want to stay in the flow.”
