New Music: Marshmello feat. Lil Peep - 'Spotlight'

  /  01.12.2018

Two months after Lil Peep’s untimely death at the age of 21, his music lives on through “Spotlight,” a posthumous collaboration with Marshmello.

Blending hip-hop, emo, and electronic music, the track finds Peep singing about an ex lover. “Sex with you is like I’m dreaming,” he sings. “I just want to hear you scream again / Now you’re gone, I can’t believe it.”

Marshmello says that the duo started working on this before Peep’s death, but that he completed it with the blessing of Gustav Åhr’s mother, Liza Womack, who recently said that she wants his music to carry on.

“Peep brought an excitement to music that was unparalleled to anybody I’ve ever met,” said Marshmello. “We started an idea together, that unfortunately we were never able to officially finish together. When I listen to this track now I get chills wishing he could hear it. This record is dedicated to Peep’s mother, family, friends, and his fans. Gus will live forever through his music and that is something we should all be extremely thankful for.”
