Lana Del Rey & A$AP Rocky in 'National Anthem'

The duo take on JFK, Jackie O and Marilyn in the full-length video.

We saw the trailer yesterday and now we present to you the full-length music video for 'National Anthem'. This is the one where A$AP Rocky plays some sort of president and Lana plays some sort of Jackie O/Marilyn composite. The video's director Anthony Mandler told MTV that the concept was all Lana: "What Lana was trying to do — this was her concept, she came to me with it, and I kind of dug it out with her — was really look and explore an archetype; just like Shakespeare wrote Romeo and Juliet, and that became the archetype of the forbidden love story." Plus it gave Lana a legit excuse to do a baby voice and sing 'Happy Birthday Mr. President'.
