Marshmello Joins Forces With Tyga & Chris Brown For “Light It Up”
Marshmello is a human hit-machine. With “Happier” finally leaving the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 after 34 weeks, it looks like “Here With Me” is about to take its place. If two mega-hits at once wasn’t enough, the bucket-headed DJ just rolled out another instantly catchy banger. There’s a twist, however. “Light It Up” falls under the producer’s hip-hop umbrella. (Yes, he can do anything). A collaboration with Tyga and Chris Brown, this is a hands-in-the-air party anthem about letting go and having a good time.
Tyga sets the tone in the opening verse. “Pass me the kush, we gon’ light it up, I’m drunk and I’m throwin’ middle fingers up,” he spits over Marshmello’s thumping beats. “Slide in my DM, you can hit me up.” Most of Chris’ verse is semi-pornographic (“throw that ass backward while that ass clapping” etc.), but it strikes a similar chorus. The hitmakers come together for the addictive chorus. “If you a real bitch, light it up,” they demand. “If you a real bitch, go ‘n light it up.” Watch the club-themed video below.
