Diplo has been all over the place these past few weeks. Not only has he branched out with his two new collaborative projects, LSD (with Labrinth and Sia) and Silk City (with Mark Ronson), but he also just produced the official FIFA World Cup song “Live It Up” with Nicky Jam, Era Istrefi, and the one and only Will Smith.
“Live It Up” might not be the kind of music that we usually dive into, but once we found out there was a collaboration that involved both Diplo and Will Smith, we knew we had to give it a listen. The track itself is what you would expect an official World Cup so to sound like: a fun, uptempo number featuring elements of lively genres like reggaeton and ska.
If you’re as curious as we were when we first of this collaboration, go ahead and give “Live It Up” a listen below.
