Since its release on February 18 2012, Born to Die has sold more than 3 million copies. Billboard reports that the album's chart longevity is mostly thanks to on-demand streaming.

Lana Del Rey is currently fielding requests from Radiohead's lawyers to acknowledge alleged similarities between Radiohead's "Creep" and Del Rey's song "Get Free" from her recent album Lust for Life.
