Hip hop legends, Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff‘s last collaboration was in 1998 with “Lovely Daze.” This weekend, the duo returned in full force, debuting their new collaborative track “Get Lit” at the Livewire Festival in Blackpool, England.

The pair also performed their classic tracks “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit’ It,” “Men In Black,” “Miami,” “Girls Ain’t Nothing But Trouble,” “Parents Don’t Understand,” “Summertime,” and “Just The Two Of Us.” Watch their live performance at Livewire Festival above. Smith told NME, that the song was reflective of the “chaos and confusion” going on in the world:

“I wanted to make a song that allowed people to let their light shine. We all have an inner light and sometimes this world [...] People can say stuff to you and tell you you can’t do and you know you can but when they tell you that it kinda knocks you down a bit right so I wanted to make a record that reminded each and every one of y’all to let your light shine.”
