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

Lana Del Rey and 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.

“It’s some swag shit,” A$AP told 16bars.tv. “I play JFK, she plays Jackie O. It’s some cool trippy shit, some real 2015 shit. People are gonna get it in like three years, and that’s the whole purpose of it.”

    Absolute perfection. Thank you Lizzy Grant for being wise and releasing this song, it’s the best one from the album. It would be very cool to hear this blasting on pop radio – I think it could happen with the right promotion. Get on any and every daytime/primetime/late night talk show! But amazing video? Check.

    I loved that $hit, but it’s a sad ending. Why A$AP didn’t spit on this? They gotta do a remix. Man I have to watch it a couple times to get the full meaning.

    People luv the visuals and so do I, but the fact that she is borderline mocking such a tragedy and seeing it as beneficial bothers my ass. Her playing Marilyn and Jackie O is rude to the entire offspring of the Kennedy family. This is reductive. I don’t care if you dislike that family or not, they are humans. Art is one thing but disrespect towards a family should be somewhere in this girl’s luxury ass brain.

    If people listen to her to feel special or wealthy or elegant, that says where we are as a whole. Great job country. Not her fault but the powers that be need to evaluate they asses on greenlighting such an evil ass video. Andy Warhol probably would have been offended. Andy Kaufman too.
