Watch: Dame Helen Mirren is Kendrick Lamar's Therapist in New Visual for 'Count Me Out'

Since dropping in 2022 "Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers," the fifth studio album by rap wunderkind Kendrick Lamar, has proved to be one of his most successful.

A critical darling, it has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards including Album of the Year, Best Rap Album, Song of the Year and Record of the Year. It was also the first hip-hop album of 2022 to reach one billion streams on Spotify.

Now, on the heels of the tour for the album — which has been praised as one of the best of his career and was called "the greatest hip-hop show of all time" by The Guardian — Lamar is releasing new visuals for his songs that seem just as well crafted.

The latest is a video accompaniment for the hit "Count Me Out." Co-directed by Lamar along with frequent collaborator Dave Free, the setup finds the rapper in therapy with Helen Mirren and juxtaposes real-life events with the metaphorical symbolism of the song.

Mirren, the Academy Award-winning actress who stars in the upcoming “1923” series opposite Harrison Ford, elevates the premise with her presence alone, while Lamar proves adept at emoting as well visually as he does aurally with the right direction.
