Video: Lana Del Rey – ‘National Anthem’ (Co-Starring A$AP Rocky)

A$AP Rocky assumes the presidency in the patriotic video for Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem.” The Harlem rapper plays John F. Kennedy alongside Lana’s Jackie O in the cinematic clip, which reenacts the First Couple’s love story and the days leading up to JFK’s assassination.
