Marshmello Shares Lil Peep Collaboration, "Spotlight"

“This record is dedicated to Peep’s mother, family, friends and his fans.”

By //Music

Earlier this week EDM producer and DJ, Marshmello stated he had plans to drop an unreleased collaboration track featuring the late Lil Peep before he passed. Though at first many fans were upset, Marshmello explained that he wasn’t planning on releasing it until Peep’s mother personally reached out and asked him to. Titled “Spotlight,” the track strays away from Marshmello’s electronic style and stays more in tune with Peep’s grungy pop-punk aesthetic.

Lil Peep issued one studio album, Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 1, before his death from a drug overdose last November. “Spotlight” will be available on all streaming services at midnight. You can listen via YouTube above.

Marshmello shared:

“Peep brought an excitement to music that was unparalleled to anybody I’ve ever met. 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.”
