Lil Jon x Steve Aoki – “Get Lower”

Longtime friends and collaborators Steve Aoki and Lil Join reunite for “Get Lower,” which pays homage to the rapper’s 2003 hit “Get Low” and marks the pair’s fourth cut together. “Jon and I have been friends for years, and whenever we get together on a track, it’s a party. When we performed at Tomorrowland last year, the energy was off the charts, and we knew we had to create another festival anthem. ‘Get Low’ is one of the most hype tracks of all time, and it’s an honor to work with Jon to bring it back for the next generation,” Aoki shares in a statement. Lil Jon adds, “It’s crazy that Steve reached out to me about this song, especially considering it’s the 20th anniversary of the track this year! I’m grateful for our friendship over the years, and there’s no better way to honor this milestone for ‘Get Low.’”
