A$AP MOB for congress? For the music video of “National Anthem,” off Lana Del Rey’s Born To Die Album, A$AP Rocky will be playing John F. Kennedy to Lana Del Rey’s Jackie O. This is definitely an abstract take on what I visualized for the video. Here’s what Rocky explained the video to be in a recent interview with Rolling Stone:
“Some swag shit,” said Rocky of the clip. “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.”
We can expect the full video to drop later this week, but for now, watch the extensive trailer below.
