Lana Del Rey has weighed in on what makes her friend and collaborator Taylor Swift so successful.

When asked why the “Fortnight” singer is so popular, Del Rey said the answer is simple: “She wants it.

She’s told me so many times that she wants it more than anyone,Del Rey said. “And how amazing — she’s getting exactly what she wants.

Added Del Rey of Swift, “She’s driven, and I think it’s really paid off.

The two duetted on the track “Snow on the Beach” from Swift’s 2022 album “Midnights.” In May 2023, Swift released a “Til Dawn” deluxe edition of the album, with a version of “Snow on the Beach” featuring “More Lana Del Rey.” Both singers share a longtime producer in Jack Antonoff, who Del Rey has worked with on her last three albums and has been a mainstay of Swift’s music since 2014’s “1989.”

Swift continues her mega successful Eras Tour this weekend in Edinburgh, Scotland, marking the first U.K. dates of the trek. At the start of the tour in March 2023, Swift lauded Del Rey’s latest album, “Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd,” during a show in Las Vegas.

Guys, it’s so good,Swift said of the album before playing “Snow on the Beach” as a surprise song. “You probably already know that. But it’s just extraordinary. I just think she’s the best that we have. And so I think we need to make it a priority as a group to stream, buy, support this album and this artist.”

Swift continued to say that Del Reyknows I’m obsessed with her, and she was kind enough to make a song with me on ‘Midnights’ called ‘Snow on the Beach,’ because she’s a generous king. And she did that for me, and I’ll never forget how nice she’s been to me. It’s so cool when you have favorite artists and they turn out to be so nice to you. So anyway, I wanted to just do some promo for her.

Now, it seems Del Rey has returned the favor.
