Marshmello Honors Lil Peep, Shares Emotive Collaboration “Spotlight”

||

For the first official posthumous release since his tragic death last year, Lil Peep is featured on Marshmello's latest song entitled "Spotlight." Marshmello said that the mother of Gus Ahr (aka Lil Peep) reached out to him because she wanted all of her son's unheard music to be released for his fans.

We're happy she did, because his life was unexpectedly cut short before we got to hear more music from the young rising rapper. Marshmello matches the emo-rap hybrid sound that Peep was known for and allows for his vocals to remain the focal point of the song while putting together a perfect backdrop of bright melodies and trap inspired hip-hip drums. The track sounds like something Peep would've released on SoundCloud before his major label debut last year, and I'm sure he would have been happy to share this with the world. R.I.P. Lil Peep
