Kendrick Lamar has dropped the music video for “Count Me Out”

Kendrick Lamar has dropped the music video for “Count Me Out” featuring this Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren as his therapist.

American rapper Kendrick Lamar well known to keep his personal life outside of the public except when it comes to his music. On December 16th, he released the music video for his Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers deep cut, “Count Me Out,” depicting the Compton artist in a piano-side therapy session with Oscar award-winning actress Helen Mirren.

Video directed by Lamar and pgLang cofounder Dave Free, it begins with a skit about Lamar taking a woman’s parking spot, before presenting a three-way split screen, showing the “HUMBLE” rapper rattling off his innermost thoughts on one side, Mirren with a steady gaze of empathy on the other, and in the middle, the scenes he describes playing out, including shots of Lamar’s partner, Whitney Alford.

The video and lyrics touch on themes of frustration, growth, infidelity and ego, staying true to the color scheme surrounding Lamar’s Big Steppers tour — black, white and red — as well as themes of life and death. Mirren’s vocals were also used in transitional moments during Lamar’s tour set.
