Lighters | Bad Meets Evil feat. Bruno Mars

What is the meaning and main idea of Bad Meets Evil feat. Bruno Mars' Lighters song? Does the title adequately represent the message it tries to convey? Do the whole lyric lines support the main idea of the song?

Well, in short the song tells us about the struggle to pursue the dreams. This is shown in the opening line sung in a high pitch by Bruno Mars, 'this one's for you and me, living out our dreams'. The meaning of this line is literal and hence reveals itself, namely the song they are singing is dedicated to them who have big dreams and struggle to pursue the dreams. The next line "we're all right where we should be" functions as the condition to the previous line. In other words, what these two lines want to say is as follow: everyone must have their own dreams, but it's only those struggling to pursue their dreams who will finally get to where they want.

The lines sung by Eminem is basically an example of life struggle to pursue dreams. This part tells Eminem's very high motivation in changing his life. His dream is to become a king. And he strove to make his dream come true. Since it is impossible for him to be real king as kingdom age is now over, he seeks to be a king in different world. He loved rap music so much and he noticed no prominent rapper. He saw opportunity in this music when he said 'This rap game's nipple is mine for milking.' That's why he declared to do the most out of him and be the king of rap. In this song, he said 'I swear to God I'll be the fucking illest in this music, there is or there ever will be.' And now he is the king of rap. He has accomplished his dream. How does that happen? With struggle, of course.

Royce Da 5'9's story is almost the same. His life was miserable. He 'cried plenty tears.' He 'used to have to eat cat to get the pussy'. This condition encouraged him to change his and his family's life. He swore that he will always struggle. Whatever happens, he will only stop when he is at the very top. His struggle pays. His carrer advance quickly 'like going rom toting iron to going and buying 4 or 5 of the homies the iron man Audi. His life is prosperous. He is now 'the cat meoww', His 'car starts itself, park itself and autotunes.

And finally, Eminem and Royce's struggle is summed up by Bruno Mars as he sings 'you and I know what it's like to be kicked down, forced to fight. But tonight, we're alright. So hold up your light. Let it shine.' So, do the lyric lines support the main idea of the song? Absolutely.

Well, that's my humble interpretation of Bad Meets Evil feat. Bruno Mars' Lighters song. Your comment is highly appreciated
