On this day, exactly 6 years ago (August 22, 2011), Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″ released the music video of “Lighters” as Bad Meets Evil, featuring Bruno Mars, off Hell: The Sequel EP.
Filming sessions for an accompanying music video for “Lighters” began on July 20, 2011 Los Angeles, California. It was conducted by American music video and commercial director Rich Lee, who previously shot the “Not Afraid” visual with Eminem.
Bruno Mars told MTV: “The video will leave fans inspired and it is such a very beautiful clip. I haven’t even seen it yet, but I think it’s going to be beautiful.” Not revealing any specific details about the video clip, he jokingly added, “I’m doing handstands, and I’m juggling naked.”
The video was premiered on VEVO on August 22, 2011. Watch it below:
