Lana Del Rey debuts at No. 2; Earl Sweatshirt returns?

- All press is good press. Lana Del Rey debuted at No. 2 on this week’s Billboard charts, selling 77,000 copies of her debut album “Born to Die.” It wasn’t enough to beat the unbeatable Adele, but she easily bested Leonard Cohen, who came in at No. 3 with “Old Ideas.” In other LDR news from the past week, she won’t be touring until the fall and Liz Phair is rooting for her.

- Earl Sweatshirt is back! Well, that is if you believe the Internet and believe Odd Future — not always the greatest combination when seeking truth. The missing in action rapper, arguably the most gifted of the controversial crew, has been at boarding school in Samoa for the last couple years. If he’s really back and his first order of business was to plead for 50,000 followers on Twitter, then color us a little disappointed.

- The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will induct six backing bands that didn’t get honored when their group leaders received enshrinement. They include the Crickets (Buddy Holly), the Famous Flames (James Brown), the Comets (Bill Haley), the Miracles (Smokey Robinson), the Midnighters (Hank Ballard) and the Blue Caps (Gene Vincent).
