em>National Anthem will be the next single from Lana Del Rey’s album Born To Die and methinks the video will be kinda cray! The artist (who Trent recently saw perform live) just tweeted a couple of sneak peek pics of her Jackie O look. Pics and deets and me gushing over A$AP Rocky to an obscene amount inside.
Based on the pics, who’s pumped to see this vid? She’s got more of a swanky Marilyn Monroe thing going on in the second one, so I suspect the whole video will have that Sixties, period-piece feel to it. I expect mainly good things :) I haven’t joined the Lana Del Rey die-hard fan-club just yet, but I really do appreciate her sound, and I’m still not over how amazing she looked at the Met Ball. Her style is really something else.
In other Lana news, ya’ll have probably heard the rumor that she may be the new face of H&M.
Oh, here’s National Anthem, in case you haven’t heard it.
Now A$AP Rocky (Harlem rapper, demigod of all things swag and anti-swag, Shannon’s fantasy rap boyfriend, etc., etc.) will appear as JFK in the video, but he doesn’t appear on the track. However, he and Lana Del Rey do have a song together, Ridin, which will be appear on his album LongLiveA$AP, due out next month (!!!).
In an interview with 16Bars TVA$AP said, “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.”
Ahhh. Well said, A$AP. Well said.
But who is A$AP Rocky? [some of] you ask. This is A$AP Rocky:
