“Lana Del Rey is just the latest artist to be inspired by Brooklyn, a.k.a. the center of the universe,” Adams told MTV News. “Her ode to our borough’s world-famous hipsters is not only inspired, it’s pretty good! The next time I’m shopping for skinny jeans while sipping a soy latte down the streets of Williamsburg, I’ll be jamming to ‘Brooklyn Baby’!”
You heard it here first, folks: Brooklyn’s borough president wears skinny jeans — I mean, approves of Del Rey’s message.
The “West Coast” singer dropped the BK-titled single last weekend, replete with tongue-in-cheek lines like, “And my boyfriend’s in a band/ He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed/ I’ve got feathers in my hair/ I get high on hydroponic weed.”
Lou Reed was originally slated to appear on the track, we learned recently, but he died on the very day they were set to record. Del Rey’s aforementioned boyfriend in a band, Barrie-James O’Neill, however, does make a cameo.
Ultraviolence is slated to drop on June 17.
