“Blue Jeans” is a song by American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey for her second studio album Born to Die (2012). It was released on April 8, 2012, by Interscope Records as the third single from the record. Produced by Emile Haynie, the song was written by Del Rey, Haynie, and Dan Heath. It is a downtempo surf ballad with hip hop influences. A controversial performance of the song on SNL placed Del Rey under scrutiny and polarized opinion. Charting across Europe and Asia, “Blue Jeans” reached the top 10 in Belgium, Poland, and Israel. Two music videos were created for the song. The first was self-produced. The second was shot and directed by Yoann Lemoine, featuring film noir elements and a crocodile. In the video, Del Rey’s fictional boyfriend is played by Bradley Soileau, the model she used for the music video of “Born To Die” (song).
