Peep It: Lana Del Rey, "Young and Beautiful"


The soundtrack that Jay-Z has put together for The Great Gatsby might seem a little weird given the setting of the film.  I’ll be the first one to admit (after seeing it last night) seeing people getting down to Kanye and Beyoncé during the “Roaring 20s” can throw you off at first.  But when you step back a little, and just watch Gatsby as a movie and not a period piece, you realize that Jay’s selection of songs fits absolutely perfectly.  Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” speaks to Gatsby’s character, and is one of the standout’s of the soundtrack’s collection.  Watch the video above.
