When old friends and former collaborators Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″ reunited to form Bad Meets Evil, it seemed like a no-brainer (even if the end result didn’t quite live up to expectations). But what did cause at least some trepidation was the Bruno Mars-featuring “Lighters” (the inclusion of a pop crooner like Mars would’ve merited a verbal beatdown courtesy of Mr. Mathers as recently as just a few years ago). The song, though, seems to be doing fairly well on the Billboard Hot 100, so the success train continues onward with a video for the power anthem. Featuring Mars at a piano, Em in his basement/special underground bunker, and Royce escaping a prison cell, all three men emerge to exactly what they’d been singing for: a sky full of decorative lamps. Why not a forest full of hot fudge sundaes instead?

Along with the “Lighters” video, check out Royce’s video for the Em-featuring “Writer’s Block” from the-not-quite-six-foot MC’s latest album Success Is Certain. There’s a lot of fire and shots of Times Square, but they’re in no way related.

2011 surely is a good year for Bruno Mars. Lighters is a beautiful combination between fast rapping verses and soft, inspiring pop hooks. Bruno Mars is going to perform on the VMAs this coming Sunday, August 28th. The show is set to air at 9/8c, so if you’re a fan, don’t forget to watch Bruno Mars’s performance! It’s going to be amazing!
