Lana Del Rey x A$AP Rocky to play Jackie O and JFK in “National Anthem” video


Rapper A$AP Rocky is set to play JFK in the video for singer Lana Del Rey‘s latest single “National Anthem.” The singer, who will play former US first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (or “Jackie O”), released her critically-acclaimed album “Born to Die” earlier this year and this latest video marks the fifth single off the album.

Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky will drop his highly anticipated debut album, LongLiveA$AP, next month and it is expected that it will include another collaboration from the pair. Rocky recently told 16barsTV [watch below], “I play JFK, she plays Jackie O. Some cool, trippy shit, some real 2015 shit. People are going to get it in three years, and that’s the whole purpose of it.”

In a separate interview, Lana Del Rey told BBC Radio 1 that the video would be 10 minutes long and directed by Anthony Mandler. “Every so often, I top what I’ve done – and this video is definitely the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done,” says the singer. “I wrote a treatment for me and A$AP Rocky because I just thought he’d be really perfect to star in it… I love it.”
