A bittersweet farewell to the pioneer of the emo-rap sub-genre, Marshmello and Lil Peep’s “Spotlight” is a heartache from start to finish. Beginning with a soft guitar riff and leading into dark pulsating synths behind Lil Peep’s brooding vocals, “Spotlight” follows the singer’s turmoil as he struggles to cope with a recent breakup.
Notably, the song is the first posthumous release of Lil Peep, who died in November 2017. “Spotlight” is the first and only collaboration between Marshmello and Lil Peep.
After Peep’s passing on Nov. 16, Marshmello tweeted his condolences along with sharing that the pair had been planning to work on new music together.
