When it comes to artistry and a video with a hidden message awaiting to be decoded, Lana Del Rey never fails to disappoint. Here’s the official visual for “National Anthem” off her debut mixed reviewed album Born To Die.
I definitely co-sign the two words stated in the description of the video, “DOPE CINEMA”. A great video and A$AP Rocky actually fits the visual very well playing the role as the President, which i’m more than certain shouldn’t be taken literally. I’m sure there’s a meaning behind the role and inclusion of a similar JFK assassination; like the love between the two was assassinated and they grew apart or something due to his race?
These are all questions i’d love to ask Lana if I was to ever get the chance to sit down with her.
Anyway, enjoy the visual and many are stating that this should be Grammy’s Video Of The Year! What do you think?
