Lighters‘ featuring Eminem, Bruno Mars, and Royce Da 5’9 has been blowing up our radio stations this summer- we’re not complaining! In fact, we’ve fallen in love with this inspirational tune all over again now that they’ve just released the new “Lighters” music video!

This vid has some really awesome subliminal messages throughout it’s entirety. All of the artists rap or sing inspirational lyrics about hitting rock bottom and then rising up to achieve goals and live life to the fullest. The video begins with Bruno Mars sitting at his piano in a well lit area with nature and plant growth surrounding him, suggesting that he has already reached the light. On the other hand, Eminem is spotted walking down a dark and drafty tunnel with only a bright red sparkler guiding him along. We first see Royce Da 5’9 behind bars in jail, rapping about his rise to success. At the end of the music video, the rappers escape their dark confines and climb out of holes in the ground onto a grassy hillside. There they are greeted by a thousand floating candles aka “a sky full of lighters.”
