Two weeks have passed since Lana del Rey’s latest album – "Lust for Life" – leaked on July 19, 2017, and kicked off file sharing activity two days ahead of schedule. Since the number of file sharers has peaked with 44,152 on July 21 – the official album release date – the activity for her music remained on a relatively steady level with an average of 31,000 daily P2P users downloading and sharing the pop music artist’s songs to date. However, not just the new album seems to be highly interesting for file sharers: nearly 115,000 P2P users shared files of her other songs in the past two weeks!
Now occupying spots 3 to 5 of the cities with the highest number of file sharers, the pop music artist’s fan base has grown over the last few weeks, especially in Minsk, São Paulo and Kiev.
Another interesting fact: Did you expect every sixth Lana del Rey fan from the United States to also download and share songs of rap music artists like Drake, Kendrick Lamar or Jay-Z the most? Compared to the country with the most active fans, Russia, preferences differ: The interest of Russian fans in music artists like those mentioned above, constitute a comparable low stake of around 2%. Instead, 1 in 10 Lana del Rey fans in Russia also shared music of rock bands like Imagine Dragons, Linkin Park or Depeche Mode.
