Helen Mirren Plays Kendrick Lamar’s Therapist In Video For ‘Count Me Out’

Kendrick Lamar has gifted us with a new music video, just in time for Christmas. Co-directed by K-Dot alongside frequent collaborator Dave Free, the clip for the Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers cut ‘Count Me Out’ stars Hollywood legend Helen Mirren as the rapper’s therapist.

‘Count Me Out’ is the fourth single to be lifted from Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers, following ‘N95’, ‘Silent Hill’ and ‘Die Hard’. Mr. Morale, Lamar’s fifth studio album, came out in May 2022 via Top Dawg Entertainment, Aftermath Entertainment, Interscope Records and Lamar’s own label, PGLang.

In the visual, the Compton MC unloads his feelings on Mirren in a therapy session, copping to swiping a woman’s parking spot, before kicking into the song alongside a montage of different scenes.

Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers is Lamar’s first proper studio effort since 2017’s Damn. The album scored eight Grammy noms and debuted at number one on the ARIA charts. Meanwhile, the artist has just qualified for Oscars contention off the back of his visual for ‘We Cry Together’, also a cut from Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. The six-minute short film features Taylour Paige, who also performs vocals on the track.

Kendrick has just wrapped up an Australian arena tour in honour of Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers.
