Marshmello x Lil Peep‘s “Spotlight” cuts deep — and its brand new music video accentuates all the emotions in all the right ways!


The storyline attached to the song explores many faces from all walks of life, but zeroes in on a vibrant girl as she struggles with seeing her bad boy ex. Her mind races with saddening and sinister possibilities, which will have you guessing up until the very last beat of “Spotlight.”

Marshmello is all for colorful, eye-catching visuals — and when paired with the essence of Lil Peep’s angsty vibe, this music video most definitely makes a statement.

RIP, Peep.

[Verse 1]
Lovin’ you is like a fairytale
I just can’t pick up the phone again
This time, I’ll be on my own, my friend
One more time, I’m all alone again

[Pre-Chorus]
Sex with you is like I’m dreamin’, and
I just wanna hear you scream again
Now you’re gone, I can’t believe it
Time I spent with you deceivin’ me
I don’t care if you believe in me
I still wonder why you’re leavin’ me
I don’t care if you believe me
I still wonder why you tease me

[Chorus]
And if I’m takin’ this the wrong way
I hope you know that you can tell me whatever you’re thinkin’
It’s when you put me in the spotlight (spotlight)
I hope you know I’m faded, all of this liquor I’m drinkin’
And if I’m takin’ this the wrong way (wrong way)
I hope you know that you can tell me whatever you’re thinkin’
It’s when you put me in the spotlight (spotlight)
It’s when you put me in the spotlight (spotlight)

[Verse 2]
When the moon hit your skin, I could see you and him
Not you and me, yeah, but it’s just you and me, yeah
When the sun shines above, you wake up with the one you love
Not you and me, yeah, but it’s just you and me, yeah
(All alone again)

[Pre-Chorus]
Sex with you is like I’m dreamin’, and
I just wanna hear you scream again
Now you’re gone, I can’t believe it
Time I spent with you deceivin’ me
I don’t care if you believe in me
I still wonder why you’re leavin’ me
I don’t care if you believe me
I still wonder why you tease me

[Chorus]
And if I’m takin’ this the wrong way
I hope you know that you can tell me whatever you’re thinkin’
It’s when you put me in the spotlight (spotlight)
I hope you know I’m faded, all of this liquor I’m drinkin’
And if I’m taking this the wrong way (wrong way)
I hope you know that you can tell me whatever you’re thinkin’
It’s when you put me in the spotlight (spotlight)
It’s when you put me in the spotlight (spotlight)

[Outro]
When the moon hit your skin, I could see you and him
Not you and me, yeah
It’s when you put me in the spotlight (spotlight)
It’s when you put me in the spotlight (spotlight)
When the sun shines above, you wake up with the one you love
Not you and me, yeah
It’s when you put me in the spotlight (spotlight)
It’s when you put me in the spotlight (spotlight)
(Spotlight, spotlight)
