"Light It Up" is a song by American electronic music producing group Major Lazer, featuring vocals from Jamaican singer Nyla, which appears on Major Lazer's third studio album Peace Is the Mission. A remixed dancehall version of the song, to which additional vocals from British-Ghanaian Afrobeats artist Fuse ODG were added, was included on a re-released version of Peace Is the Mission and released as the album's third single overall on November 5, 2015.[1]

Chart performance[edit]

The song attained international success in Europe and Oceania. It also marks Nyla's and ODG's highest-charting single to date. On the Billboard Hot 100 the song debuted at 98 and has peaked at number 73, marking Nyla's and ODG's first entry on the chart.

Remixes[edit]

On March 12, 2016, an Italian version of the song was released, featuring vocals from Italian singer and songwriter Baby K.[2]

Music video[edit]

Method Studios design team created the film that opened the 2016 AICP Show, developing the concept of a character that embodied creativity; dancing avatars created with procedural art. Artists developed 50 texture effects and custom algorithms to execute them and a CG environment with lighting and camera setups and textures. The film was then re-cut to a new track, Major Lazer’s “Light it Up” and posted online, where it garnered 100M+ views, drove downloads of the song and views for the artists, and went on to be recognized with awards, significant media coverage and re-posting worldwide.[3]
