Lil Peep & Marshmello's "Spotlight" land some emotional new visuals.

Last year, the game lost the young artist Lil Peep, who made a name for himself with a unique blend of emo-inspired vocals and hip-hop percussive flavor. And while he may be gone, his fans remain loyal, determined to ensure that Peep's legacy lives on. Today, some new visuals for the Marshmello produced "Spotlight" arrive, courtesy of Lil Peep's homie, director Nick Koenig. 

In a press release, Koenig opened up about the video's concept, stating "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."
