Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, known as the American singer, Lana Del Rey performed her first on stage performance of ‘Love’ the single from her fifth studio album, also titled ‘Love’ at the annual South by South West Music festival putting her new single front stage. Love includes lyrics with a chorus that features the destination of the coffee shop.
I love the feeling that she writes and thus sings about. Sometimes when you don’t have a place to go and need just somewhere to be – the coffee shop fills that need it becomes that space. In the coffee shop becoming that space, its able to as Del Rey shares, become enough for love, for you. The coffee shop here feels like its the somewhere that becomes the very thing that the subject doesn’t want but ends up needing: the lifestyle of something particular, something common where one can exist and just be.
Have you ever felt this way? Have you ever felt this kind of love?Watch Lana del Rey here at Apple’s music showcase.
p.s. Canadian rapper Drake, released More Love, and one of its songs with features South African DJ Black Coffee, ‘Get It Together’. Listen to it here.

Do you read comics?
This one in the last current issue of The New Yorker caused a deep chuckle. While coffee is pivotal to many people’s work function, it can’t do everything.
I appreciate the coffee but have you had luck getting a ladder?

After 25 years in business looks like this is the coffee shop chain that could and did.
