‘Marina & The Diamonds’ Debuts At No. 1 On the UK Billboard Charts [VIDEO]
With the release of her sophomore album, Electra Heart, Marina Diamandis (stage name “Marina & The Diamonds“) debuted at Number 1 on this week’s UK Album Billboard Charts. Produced by Dr. Luke, Cirkut and Diplo, “Primadonna” is the first single off Electra Heart which reached Number 11 on the UK Singles Chart. It’s no wonder “Primadonna” is Diamandis’ best single debut to date with its uptempo beats and Euro-pop sound.
In an interview with Elle Girl Marina explained, “The inspiration for the song came from an ex-boyfriend. He thought it was funny that I was a mega drama queen always talking “global love” this, “global love” that! He called me a primadonna. I love it but I also kind of hate it.”
Also topping UK’s charts this week is British R&B/Pop singer Tulisa with her hit single “Young” and Lana Del Rey moved up the singles chart from #3 to #2 with “Blue Jeans.” It seems the British ladies are serving up the type of music people want to hear. Watch the music video for “Primadonna” below.
