Lana Del Rey and A$AP Rocky Play Presidential in 'National Anthem'
She becomes Jackie and Marilyn, he is JFK

In the cinematic new video for "National Anthem," Lana Del Rey plays Jackie Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe while rapper A$AP Rocky becomes John F. Kennedy. The clip begins with Lana playing Monroe, singing "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" to A$AP Rocky's JFK before cutting to sepia-filtered Instagram shots typical of the singer. Lana then becomes Jackie, spending romantic picnics with Rocky, hosting social events and raising children together. But as history is written, their love comes to a premature end.

"National Anthem" is from Lana Del Rey's debut album, Born to Die.
