On the heels of a few otherleaks, another treat from the depths of Lana Del Rey's vaults has managed to surface, this time in the form of an unexpectedly upbeat pop track dubbed "BBM Baby."
A complete 180, stylistically-speaking, from her current oeuvre, the track is a startlingly saccharine and brazenly bubbly tune about her beloved Blackberry Messenger. And as weird as that may seem for the smoke-riddled, whiskey-ridden gal we know today, there's no question that the voice on the track belongs to none other than Del Rey. As Popcrush reports, the track was also co-written by Penguin Prison, who spoke about their unexpected collaboration in a 2011 interview, saying "She came over and we worked on a song a while ago."
"It was called 'BBM Baby'," he continued. "I guess it was about her Blackberry Messenger... I met her like two years ago and hung out with her a bunch in London and New York. She's funny, she's a very entertaining person to hang out with, and she has a wonderful singing voice."
