Instagram Live turned down for Lil Jon and T-Pain on Saturday night (April 4) when they co-hosted a virtual club night — and dropped some yet-to-be-released music in the process, too.
Like many other artists, the two rappers took matters into their own hands to deliver a great night in for their fans by livestreaming their DJ sets (and drawing an audience of over 200,000 at one point). They went back and forth with various hits (including a remix of Daddy Yankee’s 2004 smash “Gasolina”) and offered bits of banter and commentary in between (including an ill-advised anti-vaccination comment from Lil Jon, as pointed out by Complex).
The highlight was undeniably the drop of unreleased music on both sides of the battle: T-Pain premiered his collaboration with Chris Brown, “Wake Up Dead,” and Lil Jon dropped a collaboration with Usher and Ludacris reportedly written by Jermaine Dupris, who enthusiastically retweeted praise from those freaking out over the track.
Listen to Lil Jon’s collaboration with Usher and Ludacris below — and enjoy T-Pain’s reaction to the surprise as well.
