In the Rich Lee-directed music video, the Detroit rap duo finally get their sky full of lighters after going through a long, dark path.
Bad Meets Evil's "Lighters" music video has been released, featuring Eminem, Royce da 5'9" and their collaborator Bruno Mars. It opens with the Slim Shady lounging on a messy room while attempting to write lyrics. Feeling trapped, he climbs down a ladder to an underground tunnel in hopes to escape his frustration.
The same goes with his partner Royce. The Slaughterhouse is locked down somewhere behind bars counting down the day when he will finally be free again. He gets his hope up when finding a secret portal and taking a chance to explore it. At the end of their dark path, both of them find a clearing with thousands of floating lanterns lighting up the sky.
While the Detroit rappers get cinematic scene of finding a path to escape their troubles, Bruno simply sits behind a piano playing it and crooning the hook. The Grammy-winning singer once told MTV that the Rich Lee-directed video has an underlying message which will "leave fans inspired."
"Lighters" is taken from Bad Meets Evil's studio album "Hell: The Sequel" which has been in stores since June this year.
