This weekend, the “Summertime” rapper Will Smith took to the Tower Headland Arena at Livewire festival to perform some of his classic hits alongside his longtime friend and collaborator, Jazzy Jeff.
His set, which included the hit singles “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit’ It”, “Men In Black” and “Miami”, suddenly took a turn for the worse with the “Get Lit”, an EDM screecher that also happens to be the duo’s first collaboration since “Lovely Daze” in 1998.
According to NME, Smith told the crowd: “I wanted to make a song that allowed people to let their light shine.”
He continued: “We all have an inner light and sometimes people can say stuff to you and tell you you can’t do [something] and you know you can. But when they tell you that it kinda knocks you down a bit right, so I wanted to make a record that reminded each and every one of y’all to let your light shine.”
We’re not saying you can’t make EDM/pop-dance tracks, Will. But maybe you shouldn’t.
