Eminem Filming “Headlights” Video With Spike Lee
“Headlights” marks the fifth single from Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2, the second-highest selling album of 2013. With the single out on February 5, the rapper is now putting together a music video, with Spike Lee at the helm.
This weekend, Eminem revealed the news by tweeting a shot of him and Lee on set in Detroit. He captioned it with: "Spike came out to The D for the "Headlights" video. . . . Coming soon."
Lee confirmed the news, responding with: "Detroit's Finest EMINEM And Me Working Together On His Short a Film.Historic. Who Woulda Thunk It."
Although Lee’s a well-known film director, he’s added his touch to a few music videos over the years, including those from Naughty by Nature, Arrested Development, Public Enemy, and Michael Jackson.
“Headlights” marks an artistic turn for the rapper. The song’s an apology of sorts to his mother, Debbie Mathers, whom he dissed many times over the years. As well, the track features work from Fun.’s Nathan Ruess and production from Emile Haynie, Jeff Bhasker, and the rapper himself. Since debuting over two months ago, the track reached No. 73 on the Billboard Hot 100 and follows last year’s “The Monster,” which featured Rihanna.
The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is Eminem’s eighth studio album. A follow-up to Recovery, it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 when released last year.
