"Light My Body Up" is a song by French DJ and record producer David Guetta featuring vocals from American rappers Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, released on March 23, 2017.[1][2]

Background and release[edit]

After collaborating on "Where Them Girls At", "Turn Me On" and "Hey Mama", "Light My Body Up" marks the fourth time David Guetta and Nicki Minaj have worked together on a song. Released on March 23, 2017, the song carries a theme of fire throughout the piece and includes guest vocals by rapper Lil Wayne, his first time collaborating with Guetta since "I Can Only Imagine".[3]

According to Minaj, earlier versions of the song only had her vocals and did not include her rap verse. The first verse was added later after Guetta played a demo of the song to his daughter Angie who remarked: "Why isn't Nicki rapping on it too?" the music was produced between the 12th until May 15, 2016 [4] Wayne's verse was also added later after Minaj surprised the French DJ with it.[5]

"Light My Body Up" is written in the key of F minor with a tempo of 146 beats per minute.[6]
