Lana Del Rey’s eerie melody Video Games has been named song of the decade at the Q Awards in London.
“I’m so surprised, This is incredible,” said the star
Launched in 2011, Video Games was at first dismissed by many record names, who said it was excessively long, excessively testy, and came up short on the drums it expected to get played on the radio.
Be that as it may, it turned into the singer’s leap forward hit, arriving at number nine in the UK.
“I can’t reveal to you how much this means,” the star said in her acknowledgment discourse. “I got my beginning in London so I wish I could be there, yet I’m there in soul.”
The remainder of the Q Awards were commanded by grime-with Stormzy, Dizzee Racsal and Little Simz all getting significant prizes.
Stormzy grabbed best performance act, beating Liam Gallagher, and appeared to be uniquely apprehensive as he took to the platform.
“This means a ton to me. It’s been an extremely insane year for myself and my group and my family… I’m speechless.”
The star, who featured Glastonbury in June, additionally reported that his distributing organization, Merky Books, had gained the rights to the life account of top rated Young Adult writer Malorie Blackman.
Grime pioneer Dizzee Rascal got the “development in sound” grant, while Mercury-designated rapper Little Simz won best vocal execution.
Scottish troubador Lewis Capaldi grabbed the best track grant for his deplorability melody Someone You Loved.
“Music isn’t a challenge, yet I won!” he kidded as he acknowledged his prize at the Roundhouse in Camden.
The 1975 were named “most prominent act on the planet at the present time”, an award that singer Matty Healy depicted as “somewhat senseless”.
“As a matter of fact, ‘most noteworthy act’ is outrageously lowering, in light of the fact that there’s a ton of incredible acts, yet there’s very few extraordinary groups,” he included.
“Groups are somewhat dead. Or if nothing else, four white folks with guitars being the zeitgeist isn’t the place we are.”
Somewhere else, the Q Hero grant went to Kim Gordon, prime supporter of New York band Sonic Youth and “back up parent of grunge”; while French pop wonder Christine and the Queens was named the 2019 Q symbol.
“OK, no big deal,” said the star as she made that big appearance.
“It’s somewhat unbelievable on the grounds that this just began with a PC and an insane craving at 20 to be somewhat more liberated, so thank you for giving me a chance to do that from that point forward.
“Here’s to increasingly insane thoughts and insane individuals.”
