New Music: Bad Meets Evil x Bruno Mars “Lighters”

Earlier today, Em and Royce’s track featuring Bruno Mars lit up the Internet. Sounds like something that will secure a spot at the tippy-top of the charts. Enjoy the unauthorized leak, but don’t forget Hell: The Sequel drops June 14th.

  • Word

    I cringe whenever I hear Bruno Mars voice. I dont like this song. But the EP will still be dope. One bad song wont ruin the whole thing. I could barely make it through this though….I actually skimmed through it….I’ll just look up the lyrics and read the words cuz I definitely dont wanna hear this song anymore. But still looking forward to the EP.

  • Mr. A. From Tha T

  • Mr. A. From Tha T

    I’m kinna feelin bruno now…….. DAMN

  • RECOVERED

    Lmao @ people who instantly think that Em is going ‘pop’ with songs like this and is selling out. Fail. Theres ways of doing songs like this WITHOUT compromising one’s artistic integrity. And Em has done that with Lighters and LTWYL also.

    Seriously, fuck all the haters. Bunch of ignorant cocksuckers. If you gonna hate, atleast give fuckin legit reasons. Not just ‘oh he sold out’ or ‘he went pop’. Fuck outta here with bullshit.

    If you still dont believe me, listen to Em’s fuckin verse. If y’all faggots dont like it, then you have no soul. SMH.

    Peace out cunts. Lmfao. Can’t believe I wrote this much for a fuckin forum post. Haha. Stanley much?? Lol.

  • JIMMY

    How much you guys think the EP will sell in the first week? I’m guessing..100-300k

  • RECOVERED

    @ JIMMY

    Hard to tell. I don’t think they’ve done a very good job of letting the general population that Bad Meets Evil = EMINEM & Royce.

    I have fingers crossed for 180K+

  • shit haters say

    “I used to be an Em fan before Encore” – funniest shit ever, thats when you know they bullshitting
    “Em is pop” – no matter what song he releases, yet the so called best alive Jay, Kanye & Wayne have worked with more pop artists
    “Ems fans are a joke” – because they support him and buy his album, yet the haters will download their favourite rappers album instead of buying it

  • NY_2012

    Let’s just identify, in the most simple terms, the current state of hip-hop blogging.

    People who like songs that involve longevity, lyrical depth, and a unique degree of musical production tend to support a song like this, and write coherent responses when they blog their personal opinions on a web-posted song.

    Those of you who comment something like “dis sung iz wak.. fucc dis faggy azz pop shyt” are clearly ignorant, incoherent, and can’t appreciate something with substance. You most likely will not like this song because you can only identify with a piece of musical composition that is equal to your intelligence level (little to none).

    That being said, I believe this is a good song, and it catches a majority of criticism because it features Bruno Mars. If Bruno Mars didn’t make it mainstream, and was still under the RapRadar, I am sure the comment board would be a lot more positive. I guess internet critics think their hate actually influences people; keep posting the same garbage from different names, it will not deter people from supporting Eminem and Royce.

    In Twitter terms: Haters.. #epicfail

  • CaliSteppin

    Good song but i think Royce sounded outside his comfort zone.. He still spit good lyrics though

  • YOUAJOKE

    CALISTEPPIN… I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW HOW YOU CAME TO THAT REVIEW

    ROYCE HAS ONE OF THE BEST FLOWS IN RAP AND SHOWED IT ON THIS SONG

  • RECOVERED

    @ NY_2012 well said, sir.

  • RECOVERED

    ^or her. lol

  • the instigator

    the problem is not its flowerful gangsta sound, like gunz and roses to the ears. its the album the song is gonna be on. uhhhhhh “bad meets evil: hell the sequel, featuring the sweet soulful sounds of bruno marz in “lighters”".?!? c’mon now.

  • RECOVERED

    ^Even the devil has a heart. Or so I hear…

  • Toya

    I like this song a lot more than “I’m On Everything”.

  • Jimmy’s Dad

  • Thank Me Hater

    I got news for yall. Em been “pop” since the slim shady lp. Fall back

  • Whateva

    This shit is so gay. Eminem’s flow is off and is off-beat. Royce is basically sucking Eminem off in this song. Slowly selling out. Oh and Bruno Mars is on this song. Gay. Gay. Gay.

  • Black Shady

    shit is dope!!! Em killed it….Royce killed it

    SHADY! June 14th we taking over

  • CaliSteppin

    @YOUAJOKE
    I agree that Royce has one of the best flows in the game and he is one of the best doing it right now but I just think this beat didn’t suit him which in turn caused him to sound out of his comfort zone.. IMO

  • http://n/a james

    wow. never thought i would actually see the day em did it like this – no love he fuckin killed but god damn knowing he can rap like this is just fucking awesome. song a little corny with bruno watever but ems verse is crazy dope

    Fucking pricks, that’s what you shady haters only listen to….HOOKS! Pay attention to the verses. And fuck offs every Album needs a lead single. I bet all of you dick heads bumped “Real Slim Shady”, “Just Lose it”. Fuck offs you rather listen to Rick Ross talking about money or Kanye being Cocky! Watch the Throne has Bruno Mars on it too, so whats up suckas? Go fuck yourselves! Em is #1 and forever will be!

  • Ze Pequeno

    As a fan of hip-hop and loving the art and its progress, having Em on my top 5 and trying to be as objective as I can, this song is wack as fuck.

  • Kwamé

    You wiggas crack me up.u hate on ross for being ‘fake’ while u conveniently forget what ur racist idol said in the past.why the hypocrisy?Then he makes corny music like this which is utter pop and u eat it up.

  • Shady Over Everything

    So what’s the difference between this & “Stan”??? Lyrics?Beat?Hook? Almost the same thing, so you lame fucks and go kiss what ever rapper you listen to and watch this climb the charts. #ShadyAftermath #Slaughterhouse

    no one is fuckin with shady’s shit.
    u guys can hate all you want. but this is fire. and the numbers will reflect it when it drops.

  • yo WTF

    Yo wtf is up with you guys.
    This song is dope, it does not have to be all gangsta shit all the time. I hope Em wont stop doing this kind of songs. its nice to hear songs that actually have story and meaning.

  • JMC

    Its not that its not a good song, its just that this isn’t Recovery. This is HELL THE FUCKING SEQUEL!!! This EP is supposed to be nothing but Horror mother fucking core with new ass hole tearing rhymes…w/e though they gotta sell records just means i gotta skip one song.

    wana hear ‘kiss’ the bangladesh joint

  • http://rapturehappened.wordpress.com rapturehappened

    I don’t know how people can say Em fell off and lost his edge based on this verse. When someone sells out they sell out. They stop doing it for heart and start doing it for charts. Listen to Eminem’s verse… that’s all heart you morons. The dude almost died. You realize that what that does to your brain? Yeah, it’s a shame he isn’t rapping about killing his wife and how much he hates his fans, and is thanking people for giving him the career he’s had.

    I can’t even listen to eminem anymore. its not just that the song isn’t my kind of song, but eminem just sounds really anoying. why does he have to scream like that in every god damn song.

  • Matt

    Great verses, but corny beat and hook. Expected to be better.

  • RC

    Shit is cold. First song I liked.

  • BIGGEST EMINEM STAN

    Nah. I will be real with this. This shit is not only Gay by puttin that faggot Bruno Mars on it, its also HORRIBLE. Em’s flow was so bad. Royce also sounded wack. This rarely happens. You mix these two up and you will get nothing but PERFECTION, but not here. I bet Em made this track cuz fags and lil dumb cunts will take it to the top of the charts and will give him another hit. NAH FUCK THIS. but hell yeah for the REST OF THE SONGS.

  • Forever Black

    This song is weak tbh. I like eminem but he we will never be the same. Stop trying to be like the rest of the rappers. He need to go back to his original format because that made him different. I think that’s what he is missing, right now. I never liked Royce because he is a dickhead. Emenim fans will support this no matter. I’m not buying unless I can get it free.

  • Donn

    *PUTS SONG ON REPEAT AND LAUGHS @ THE COMMENTS*

  • Ashin Kusher

    This is so dope. People are obviously gonna say it’s pop with the feature and melody but just listen to the real shit being spat here. Ignorant fucks. And em and royce’s flow are untouchable. What Royce said about stopping the track to say what Em said about Dre on WTD, woah.

  • Forever Black

    This is just so-so at best. Eminem hasn’t made dope music since he came back. He needs to go back and take a look at how he rapped verse then. Verdict not good. TBH i’m not buying this EP
    unless someone gets it for me or I find it and can download it for free. This isn’t cutting it, but his crazy mental fans will. If he took a shit and sd this a new lp they go and get. DISAPPOINTED ON SO MANY LEVELS. I HATE ROYCE I WILL NEVER SUPPORT THIS TWO-FACED ASSHOLE.

  • ok really

    Em sounds like he is saying the same thing on all his songs lately….this song is soft ass all hell! Not bad but damn sure not good.

  • Nickey Black

    I like how they used the Jayz whisper style in the second part of their verses.

  • Josh

    Reading the comments on here makes me believe that haters just don’t know shit about rhyming and that they focus on beats to make a good song. This song is far from great overall. But the verses and the story itself is incredible. I dont even like Bruno Mars, or the beat selection. But the storytelling is on point. Suck a dick haters.

  • Dan

    hate bruno mars but eminems and royce’s part <3

    @NY_2012

    You, sir, are a Stan. Substance? It’s not there. It’s just a corny song made for retards. I bet you also love the garbage he made with Rihanna. This song is nothing but a cheap attempt to get back on top of the charts. Normally when you mix both of these artists you get nothing but great music. This is probably the first failure of Bad Meets Evil. Everything from the hook to the flow is downright horrible. The verses also sound forced and unnatural. Even the beat sounds something out of Recovery. I like the previous two songs but this will be a song skipped by a lot of people. The rest of the album sounds pretty strong so lets just hope it’s nothing like this.

  • Marshall

    Relaaaax it just a sales strategy, but that doesn’t make them sell outs tho,shit still dope, but Bruno annoys me in some way.

    Hand’s down Bad Meet’s Evil killed this track. Bruno Mar’s is great at singing (and i for one hate pop music) This to me is far from pop though. It’s all real shit, far from Gucci Man retarted ass. Lil Wayne is “okay” to me, prolly a 3 out of 10, but he does song’s with j-lo and nobody said shit ?????????????? PEOPLE ARE JUST MAD THE BEST RAPPER IS WHITE AND BETTER THEN EVERYONE, THE HIGHEST SELLING RAP ARTIST, AND THE ONLY RAPPER TO HAVE TWO ALBUMS PLATNUM !!!!

  • TheCool

    “Now Bruno can show his ass, without the MTV awards gag” Ohhh shit. jajajaja. Royce is bagged this shit forreal.

    I like the song. It does sound pop-ish, but the verses are straight spitting.

    Ya’ll act like making a pop-ish, rap-ish song is the worse thing on the planet. This shits. Niggas just wanna hear that ill smack a bitch, pop a cap in yo ass shit wtf. The I didnt like Love The Way You Lie, becuz I know Rihanna can’t sing for shit in real life. But Bruno’s talented.

  • C

    I’m not a fan of Bruno Mars but it’s not bad, all y’all who keep calling em a sell out and “pop” artist are slow, lyrically no one can touch him these days.

  • Drink Responsibly

    I’m taller than RD59; but M’s verse was the magma… um, ya heard.

  • nujerz

    Both verses were dope and Bruno can sing even though he corny but this beat is terrible…I also peeped another subliminal shot at Weezy with that 6’8 line.

  • Mario

    good song a little too soft coming these two tho.

  • Nickey Black

    @ lethal poet i get mad when you Em fans say he`s the best ever or greatest ever. You Em fans choose to disregard the legends of hip hop and im not just referring to Tupac or Big because we have plenty of legends. Em is a good rapper and being a good white rapper has Its advantages. 1 being whites truly support their race, whereas its a different story for the black culture wheres theres no unity or support. So when its practically majority whites saying Em is the goat proves to alot of blacks that our hip hop culture is not respected to the fullest, so we may type or scream fuck Eminem! Its not hate from me if i say fuck Eminem, its anger cause something we created is not being taking seriously. Our legends are being shitted on and they need to be acknowledge b4 Em gets all the credit in hip hop.

  • dmann

    I think lot of dudes r stuck in the past they picture eminem with blonde hair n baggy shit cussin at people on mtv or watever its been how long? Move on he has

  • E@rl Th@ Pe@rl

    Record sales don’t make an artist. THE FANS DO. And with technology becoming more and more advanced, we f*ck the artist by downloading their albums (illegally). The money they make really comes from the shows and touring.(Redman said it himself) SO regardless of how much this sales (or what Ross & Co sold), it really doesn’t matter when you’re still relevant. Look @ the many platinum artists that can’t even put out an album when they want to. (LL Cool J, Mike Jones, The Game, Jeezy, etc…)

    lets not hate.
    Ur favorite rapper has PROBABLY WORKED WITH A SINGER ( Bruno Mars caliber )ON THE TRACK WITH HIM, AND THATS A FACT.
    And this wasnt no love song club rockin bullshit, it was REAL. Great song, and i honestly wish this was released over I’m On Everything. Eminems verse gets better after each singer, Royces was solid form the start, and Bruno did great.

    So lets not judge a book by its cover, this song was actually really really deep and im sure its gonna be a highlight on the EP

    idont see why ppl bitching lil wayne and all them niggas be on some MAJOR pop autotunebullshit yet half yall complaining probably love that nigga
    but when em puts bruno on a deepass hook he sellin out? always gotta have a reason to hate.

  • da 5’9

    amazing!!! bruno killed the hook, em destroyed his part, and royce was a beast

    WTF. This is not what I expected from BAD MEETS EVIL. It’s decent… but I don’t ever plan on listening to it ever again.

  • dillweed

    dam these guys r dope

  • J.COAL

    @Kat surely thats 80% of the song then? the rest is a tiny amount. good one.

    Too much bitterness, all these people that are just upset because their precious “underground hiphop” hits sea level! Get out the 90s, a rapper can still be dope on a track and that is not taken away from him because hes got a (OMG NO!) a pop singer, if anything its appealing to a wider audience, who can blame them for doing that when you got cretins on this website fucking hating on anything but 64bar freestyles.Shits boring.

  • anthony

    thats not true if wayne or drake made this song neither of them has the skill to wordplay like em did on it. itd be that same slow ass rap with corny metaphors. hey if you like waynes three word bars, then thats your deal but this is the radio song for this album and how much better is it then that whack “how to love” trash wayne just put out to get spins…even though it not haha.and dont hate i actually like wayne and drake but sorry theyre not on the same level as em no matter how much you lie to yourself.

  • Josh

    @Kidd R@pp Eat a dick bitch…. I don’t fuck with Bruno Mars and the beat selection but you’re not a real fan of hip hop if you don’t respect storytelling ability. Go fuck with that ol bullshit that you’re on these days.

  • FIRE MARSHALL

    the games gone pop and TIP’s gunna save it? what so TI collabing with rihanna is defferent from Marshall colabing with Rihanna, & what about TIP’s collab with christina agurlera? does that not count as pop? OF COURSE NOT, BECAUSE HE’S BLACK. —-> (SARCASM)

  • ben

    This is some pop shit… I wanted this to be a DETROIT album

  • cz

    im 6’8″…that sounds like hes sayin hes one inch taller then wayne (6’7″), diss

  • YOUR pusha

    not bad,they need something to rotate on the radio to help sell the EP and this will do just that, i just dont think eminem is at that stage of his career where he needs radio songs to sell his lps, but from a business perspective u have to do it i guess, im sticking to the other guys over in south beach myself, i need that gangsta shit

  • Protest

    this is corny and cheesy, not gonna lie. Sky full of ligthers? Eh…. and im a big fan of both. Fast Lane is the only song out of the 3 that leaked so far that I fuck with

  • Devastation Inc.

    As far as these two go, fuck the song
    I’m just glad they were able to squash
    their bullshit and make music. Because in
    the end that’s what it’s all about,The
    music. “Dont’ stop the music” (Jay-z voice)

  • jerrayyyy

    I swear to god in this music I’ll be the illest there is and there ever will be…

  • http://www.facebook.com/serisony SeRiSoNy

    I’m a huge fan, and I defend a lot of Eminem material. This song though…deserves all the hate. It’s straight pandering to Top 40 radio. Everything everybody was saying badly about “Im On Everything”, scratch that and apply it to this song. I’ve always been a B-Side kind of person anyways though. Fuck your single. ha!

  • jake

    BIG and Pac would be proud that someone is keeping lyricism and meaning to songs alive…great job em’. the haters don’t even know what you’re sayin anyways

  • DJ HzD Brazil

    @jake Damn, maybe your comment it’s the only that worth here…
    It’s a good song!
    Not his best, but still good…
    If he changed the beat, and the singer, yall was going to say that he’s a legend…
    but just cause of Bruno and the beat, you don’t really see the real mean on his lyrics…
    Singer=Good
    Beat=OK
    Flow=Monster
    Lyrics=Monster

    The hate is making zombies…
    SMH

    As Jigga Said:

    AWESOME!

  • Bronx NY

    come on EM!!!! what the fuck you thinkin ……… im shady fan hard body …….. but this shit aint gettin played in my vehicle …… fuck this noise …

  • http://rapturehappened.wordpress.com rapturehappened

    You do realize that Eminem has been ‘Pop’ ever since he blew up, right? Pop is short for popular. Eminem is the most popular rap/hip-hop artist of all-time, indicating that he is ‘King of Pop’.

    I just don’t understand how you can hate on Eminem’s verse, listen to what the dude is talking about. How is that selling out? That is from the heart, that’s what ART is. Selling out is when there is no heart, just money. This project was all done for FUN, for HEART, for ART, for the SAKE OF IT. Eminem and Royce repaired their relationship, you really gonna try to claim that they’re selling out? Are you stupid?

  • Da REALIST

    Hmmm , Lyrics are tight but what the fuck wit bruno mars and this lame ass beat ? seriously not feelin this one..someone needs to remix on a diff beat and then I’ll feel it..until then , Im not wasting my time .. this = headache for real

  • http://skwer.org haq

    lame

  • Pascal_kyzaa

    great song! Bruno Mars is a bit cheesy, but otherwise the song very well!

  • Frayzer

    I like Em but…
    Fuckkkk me first Rihanna and Pink now Bruno Mars watch Eminems next album ull have bieber, ne-yo and britney spears on it, its getting fuckin ridiculous

  • “Bad meets Evil”…… Has Leaked

    ATTENTION ALL EMINEM STANS….. (Like me Lol)

    Bad meets Evil has leaked and……………….. DAMN.

    Slight Spoiler Alert….. Em FINALLY makes a lady gaga Line…. Lol, Its Clever and Funny as hell……..

    As far as the Album as a Whole… Well, Im a Em fan so, asking me would’nt be fair. Judge for yourselfs………… BUT, I will say this tho…………. Em wanted to shit on Royce. Trust me Lol. “Friendly” Competition my ass. Royce went in tho

    Check it out before Youtube shuts it down.

  • FIRE MARSHALL

    just listend to the album, you wont be disapointed!!

  • André

    C’mon guys, WTF is this piece of shit ? What’s the difference between this trash and any Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber song? Fuck it… All the talent Marshall Bruce Mathers had died in the rehab.

  • Evanflo

    this doesn’t sound like Bad meets Evil, come on now.

  • yo momma

    Idiots! this is great. HORRIBLE. you say. Go get a life. EMinem’s worst song>your favorite rapper

  • Abbey

    For those of you that claim he has sold out, please just shut the F up! The guy is 36 or 37 now! its not that hard to understand that hes grown up!!!! hes rapping about different things now, life experiences and shit! hes real!! why do you think he has such a huge fan base?????? because a lot of people can relate to him!!

    Went pop? stfu!! just because bruno mars is on the hook doesn’t mean that the lyrics aren’t on point! both verses were dope! the song is gonna be a huge hit!!

    Stop hating!! if you dont like it, then dont keep posting on here idiots!

  • 2fast

    the whole album is crazy! get it at thisisbuckwild.com

  • killa

    EMINEM IS GAY.

    I hope the thruth comes out one day.

  • kalluminati

    the cd is crazy. it leaked people get ur copy now… and for sure get anotehr copy on the 14th. i’[ll b getting one for da house, and another 4 the whip. 1..

  • KanyeSmug

    All verses dope but that line with *hairy box*

  • C4 > all

    C4 will be so much better. dont get me wrong em is great but Weezy is the greatest.

  • jake

    the whole cd leaked and its amazing…i don’t care what any haters have to say they’re just a bunch of insecure losers anyhow. this is the strongest eminems ever come on a cd since the beginning of his career, maybe in his whole career. he’s back that lyrical level that just leaves you sayin “huh, rewind that, i gotta hear it again” but now his flow is out of control. reminds me a little of the eminem show days where it just seemed like hip hop on roids.

  • jake

    lady gaga could quit her job at the post office and she’d still be a male-lady i wouldn’t fuck her with her own dick hahahahahah good stuff

  • Mendim H.

    other songs are to hard ! this is perfectly epic :D

  • You’reWelcome
  • FIRE MARSHALL

    after hearing this a couple off times its absoloutly perfect. the album i mean!
    theres lines about lady gaga and justin bieber, theres emotion, creativity, story lines, metaphors& feeling, he talks about people steeling his music, the album is perfect it gives me goosebumps and at the same time makes me Laugh Out Loud at some off the methaphrs… AMAZING

  • http://rapradar.com/2011/06/02/new-music-bad-meets-evil-x-bruno-mars-lighters/ Bower

    Bullshit, all you haters fuck you, even if Em were pop he’d still be the best lyrical artist in the game present!

  • mikey

    ehhh!! this is pretty much a bruno mars song just with eminem & royce rapping on it… but Im sure em fans will eat it up anyway.

  • A-Dot

    The difference between this and a Bieber song? Both emcees are talkin about something real and struggles they went through, but fuck the words yall dont listen to them anyway

  • stevie

    basically all the “haters” shitting on this song can go fuck themselves cause eaither way you look about it… he made it you didnt… hes making bank and your sitting on a computer judging lyrics you dont even know

  • TheCool

    Listened to it a couple more time… And i actually don’t like it now. Bruno Mars is straight. I’m on one of those that thinks if a rapper works with a pop artist he sold out. Cuz Bruno actually has talent and can sing.

    But the beat is to fuckin’ wack it for me. Em and Royce were nice on it, but the beat sounds so corny.

    Fuck it doh, outta 3 songs I heard from Hell: The Sequel, this is the only one I don’t like. Fast Lane and I’m On Everything are fire.

  • http://www.twitter.com/ridalen ridalen

    its like hes trying to make a pop song but they each have like 32 bar verses….how does that work?

    ems cursing his ass off in the verse too…this song is all kinds of off

  • 10111

    eminem scared the shit outta lil wayne and tha carter 4…..sorry wayne fans…FACT……wait until august suckers…….gaga also scared the shit outta your fav rapper……….JUNE IS HOT….shady we takin over….FIF COMOING BACK ALSO

  • NBD

    HAHA. This song is horrible?? WHY? because Bruno Mars is on it?

    You guys need a musical reality check. Not everything has to be gangsta. It’s obvious after going through what Em has been through he has MATURED. And his latest music has shown it.

    Shame on the people who only care about the music they want. Not what the artists are going through or what THEY WANT to do, after all – Hip Hop is about expressing YOUR FEELINGS aint it????

    And like “?” said – EVERY SONG NEEDS A LEAD SINGLE DUMMYS!!! You can’t release a big label album without doing a track that will make them money.

    Damn you haters need to get out from behind your laptops and learn the music industry.

  • jon

    this is fucking horrible
