Eminem and Spike Lee Shoot ‘Headlights’ Video in Detroit

Spike Lee and Eminem

Eminem’s next video will be a Spike Lee joint. Earlier this week, the hip-hop superstar teamed up with the iconic director to shoot a video for his next Marshall Mathers LP 2 single “Headlights” in his hometown of Detroit.

He snapped an Instagram photo of him and Spike on set. “Spike came out to The D for the ‘Headlights’ video… Coming soon,” tweeted Em.

On Wednesday, Spike paid a visit to 8 Mile, but didn’t reveal why he was there. “Great Day To Be In Motown On Marvin Gaye’s Born Day,” he said, later adding, “Detroit’s Finest EMINEM And Me Working Together On His Short a Film.Historic. Who Woulda Thunk It.”

With Spike in the director’s chair, expect a cinematic video for the Nate Ruess-assisted song, on which Em apologizes to his mother Debbie Mathers following their tumultuous past.

He has also shared a behind-the-scenes clip from his last video for “The Monster” co-starring Rihanna.

    Seriously, Eminem? “Headlights”? With so many better songs with mainstream appeal on the album and you pick this one… I can’t even. “Beautiful Pain” should be the next single. The song screams “pleeeease release me and I’m #1 worldwide by tomorrow!!!”. “Beautiful Pain” would make MMLP2 sell 5x faster and pass the 4 million mark it has already hit.

    @TheHipHopRapping, I agree with Beautiful Pain being a single, but this song is also a great choice. It’s slower than the others and very personal to Em. It also has crossover appeal and I just know the video will be amazing.
