Lil Jon is becoming more immersed in the pop and EDM scene. The King of Crunk displays that on his new single “Take It Off” featuring singer Becky G and reggaeton artist Yandel. Lil Jon puts some more attention on the track, which dropped in the summer, by dropping a music video for the song.
The visual sees Lil Jon, Becky G and Yandel out in Las Vegas partying the night away. Lil Jon lets his featured artists a lot of shine on this record, but he still manages to handle a few short verses.
“Hey, back it up on me, any closer I’ma be like/Hey, all up in your ear, tell you what you wanna hear like/Hey, I’m looking at you, booty looking at me like/Hey, tell the valet to bring me my keys,” Lil Jon raps.
“Take It Off” is one of Lil Jon’s few releases this year as he’s mainly been occupied with his residency in Las Vegas. The Atlanta producer is contributing to some memorable Vegas nights as part of his new gig.
“I’ve just been blessed to have a great career,” he told the Las Vegas Weekly about his residency. “To be in Vegas now helping people rage is great. But more music is coming.”
Lil Jon has not faded away from hip-hop yet though. The “Turn Down For What” creator was a guest on Rae Sremmurd’s “Set the Roof” off the duo’s SremmLife 2 album.
