Steve Aoki has just unleashed another banger off his upcoming album, Kolony.
On Thursday night, the famed DJ/mega-producer rolled out his new track called “Lit,” featuring Gucci Mane, T-Pain, and Yellow Claw. The song is a quintessential party anthem (as the title suggests), and finds the rappers addressing everything from women to money to flexing in the club.
“I'm tryna live, tryna hit Club Liv and spend a mil/Who wanna chill with a rich nigga?/Can't wait to pay your bills,” Gucci raps. “Listen here, I just made 20 thousand disappear/See it clear, crystal clear/Just like these diamonds in my ear.”
In a recent interview with Billboard, Aoki broke down “Lit” and explained why he believe it’s a memorable track.
“It's literally lit! [Gucci and T-Pain] both brought in an energy to it in their own way that made it extra lit. The song is instrumentally a strong record as an EDM record,” he said. “T-Pain just took it to the next level with his hook in his classic T-Pain way. Guwop, he's King Guwop. As far as the music video, he's sitting on the throne because he's the king. So I got the king on there.”
The track follows the previously released singles “Without U” featuring DVBBS and 2 Chainz, and “Night Call” with Migos and Lil Yachty. Kolony, which is set to drop July 21, will also include appearances by Lil Uzi Vert, Mase, and Wale.
