Turn On The Lights by Future
The music video for Turn on the Lights by Future was made to accompany Future’s song from his debut studio album, 2012’s Pluto. The music video for Turn on the Lights by Future was directed by Bryan Barber and was released in mid-2012. It is not known when or where it was filmed, although the skyline suggests it was filmed in Future’s hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. Lyrically, the song is about Future’s search for a beautiful, faithful girl, and the video reflects that. The video stars Future, as well as two beautiful women as his love interests.
The music video for Turn on the Lights by Future opens with a picture and a message in memory of DJ Big C’s wife, Nikki Mathis. The scene then fades in to display the sunrise over a skyline, before cutting to Future singing the song’s opening lines. He then goes outside to get a closer look at the sky. The scene switches to a girl outside, dressed provocatively and leaning against a car. The car is parked against a wall covered almost completely by graffiti, representing that she is the “hood girl” Future mentions in the song. The video shows Future making a call, presumably trying to reach the girl. However, she is too busy making a deal with another man, exchanging cash through a handshake with him.
Outside, where Future is waiting, another girl jogs by. She and Future spot each other, and they exchange phone numbers. The video cuts to show the hood girl in her convertible, reapplying her lip gloss before she meets Future. She gets in his SUV, and they kiss before riding back to Future’s crib. There, she drinks and watches Future’s friends gamble. She waves at someone, and it is shown that it is the man with whom she exchanged cash earlier. Future sees this and seems displeased.
The scene cuts to show Future with the girl he met while she was running, flirting in a kitchen. They eat strawberries and whipped cream before he pushes her onto a counter. They seem to engage in sex, breaking glasses as they do so. The scene switches to Future outside at night in a dark, smoky place. There are explosions around the girl, representing that she is his light. This is interspersed with scene of him fighting with the hood girl in slow motion. She throws a pillow and her necklace at him, implying that they are breaking up. Future is seen with the other girl on the rooftop, and they embrace intimately as the video ends. In the last scene for the music video for Turn on the Lights, Future seems to have found a girl he can trust.
