Watch the video for Lil Peep’s posthumous Marshmello collaboration ‘Spotlight’

EDM producer Marshmello has shared a video for his Lil Peep collaboration ‘Spotlight’, which was released in January following the rapper’s death in November.

The emo rapper (real name Gustav Åhr) passed away on November 15 from a fentanyl and Xanax overdose. He was 21.

Before his passing, Peep had worked with Marshmello on ‘Spotlight’. Now Nick Koenig (aka Hot Sugar) has directed a video for the track. Koenig had previously worked with Peep for his ‘Awful Things’ clip.

“For this video I just wanted what Gus would have wanted. And I think this is exactly it,” Marshmello says of the video.

Koenig adds: “Relationships have a way of overwhelming the meaning and context of physical items to the point of hijacking them. What once was just a household item might now be something that reminds us of that relationship to a point where it overpowers what that item was traditionally meant for. These objects end up developing a shared significance between those in the relationship.”

“Like Peep’s passing, no one got to say goodbye properly but the objects he left us (his body of work both musical and social) remain ours to share in our relationship with him.”
