Red, White, Blue’s in the sky. Summer’s in the air baby heaven’s in your eyes. I’m your national anthem. Money is the anthem… of success.
I have to admit, I was a little late jumping on the Lana Del Rey band wagon when she first came out. I loved “Video Games” but wasn’t sure if she could deliver with the rest of her album after her very disappointing live performance on Saturday Night Live. When her album debuted, I buckled down and purchased it. I immediately fell in love. It’s haunting sound and nature with sexual and interesting lyrics quickly became a repeat on my iPhone. One of my favorite tracks was definitely “National Anthem” which Lana has now given the music video treatment.
In the video, Lana plays Jacqueline Kennedy with rapper A$AP Rocky portraying the late President John F. Kennedy. The video is an epic 7 minutes and 40 seconds long but well worth the entire time span. The video captures Lana and A$AP in some great candid moments acting as the famous couple. Whether at their daughter’s birthday party or lounging on the lawn, the two show off some great onscreen chemistry.
