Lana Del Rey + A$AP Rocky - "National Anthem" (video)

by PopMatters Staff

27 June 2012

 

Lana Del Rey kicks off this new video with an ode to Marilyn Monroe’s “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” sung for JFK. Then, we get a pop tune skewering our culture’s love of money and consumerism with Del Rey and A$AP Rocky playing Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy… “Money is the anthem of success.”
