Earlier this week, Marshmello hinted at releasing his collaboration with the late Lil Peep. Now, Marshmello has released the collaboration, titled “Spotlight.” It’s the first single since Peep’s passing.
A distorted electric guitar and a deep bass pad takes the reigns on opening “Spotlight.” As the track continues, various trap percussion elements are added, complementing Peep’s vocals and Marshmello’s diverse sound.

Marshmello’s an anonymous electronic music producer and DJ. His career gained impressive traction through collaborations with artists like Omar LinX, Ookay, Jauz, and Slushii. His track “Alone” saw the Billboard Hot 100 chart back in January of 2017.
