Last October, Marshmello caused tremors in both the dance and hip-hop world when he was pictured alongside Chris Brown and Tyga with the caption “We got one.” Today (April 25), we finally get a taste of what he and the Fan of a Fan tandem cooked up with their newest single “Light It Up.”
Marshmello doubles up on the release front, dropping both the song and video with Tyga and CB. The luxe visual finds the DJ operating behind the turntables at a fun-filled club while T-Raww and Brown take turns dominating the stage in front of a raucous crowd.
First, Tyga dances his way through Marshmello’s hypnotic beat with silky precision before linking up with Brown on the song’s tuneful hook. “If it’s your birthday light it up/ if you a real bitch then light it up,” they sing in unison. As they continue to deliver a charged-up performance, several bartenders are spotted carrying a bling-laden cake with the masked producer’s face draped over it.
After pedaling his way through the hook, Brown pencils a swaggering verse, while dancing on top of the club’s bar. “I know you see the smoke in the air,” he howls before dancing along Tyga and Marshmello centerstage.
