Lana Del Rey has a simple response for critics now: she has the second most popular record in the country.
Born to Die, her debut album, is second only to Adele's mammoth chart-topper, 21.
With her upcoming Grammy performance announced, a fully-recovered Adele has had quite a week. The "Someone Like You" singer's album 21 came in at number one for its 19th non-consecutive week, according to Nielsen Soundscan numbers.
Adele's fantastic ratings may be old news, but Del Rey, who some have called the worst musical guest in 'Saturday Night Live" history, can look to the accomplishment for redemption.
Billboard reports that the singer's efforts also landed her the top spot on the U.K. album charts, a less surprising feat given the extensive touring Del Rey has done in the U.K. and elsewhere in Europe.
While many sites bashed the singer and published false reports that her tour had been canceled just yesterday, she's suddenly a "winner of the week" again. Born To Die sold 77,000 copies and will take the second spot on Billboard's albums chart.
Del Rey performance Tuesday at Los Angeles' Amoeba Records store appeared to go well, with fans packing the house and even growing emotional at the chance to see and meet the embattled singer.
