Lana Del Rey Drops Two New Songs: “Summer Bummer” and “Groupie Love”

Lana Del Rey’s foray into hip-hop might seem long overdue, but judging by the languid tempos of “Summer Bummer” and “Groupie Love,” two newly released songs from her forthcoming album, Lust for Life, the singer-songwriter is perfectly fine taking her sweet time.

Based on its title at least, the former could be seen as a quasi-sequel to her 2013 hit “Summertime Sadness,” only with EDM traded for hip-hop. Del Rey purrs lines like “Hip-hop in the summer/Don’t be a bummer, babe/Be my undercover lover, babe” atop a sparse loop and half-buried rhymes by guests A$AP Rocky and Playboi Carti, who eventually take the mic for a lengthy verse of their own, boasting: “I might fuck with her all summer for real.”
