Get Lit

As the eternal bringer of darkness, I think the song is shiet. It sounds a lot like something from one of those "hey we just found some new electronical noise to play around with"-eras. Its very unoriginal (if thats a word). Then again, I'm just a hardcore sucker for sampling nice old soul/funk/jazz and I have a very hard to relate to "club scene" things because it just doesnt work for me. Personally, I would prefer if they renewed old concepts instead of somewhat desperately trying to keep up with changing times... I mean its not like the "times" of today is something to hang onto anyway...

I agree that the song is bad. Let's wait for the next try. :)

the song might not be brand new funk but it's still way better than that young money/rick ross garbage we hear these days...

Get lit has been growing on me day by day since I heard it the first time. It's uplifting. I'm actually adding it today to my workout playlist

It's been a long time since I bought a Will track. 

Mixed reviews on his Facebook. It's yet to chart on iTunes or Spotify. Either way, I'm just glad I have a new song. 

Lets hope It's just the beginning of some more music.

I tried to post about this yesterday but the board was temporarily down at the time.  I was scrolling social media yesterday morning and was surprised to see it released. It wasn't even mentioned in the Amazon music/digital download newsletter I got. I quickly bought it. I do like hearing the studio version because I can hear all of the lyrics clearly. I've only listened to it on my computer though, so I can't wait to pump it on my car stereo.  For not having a proper photo shoot for it, the cover is simple, but kinda cool.

Like everyone else, I love the lyrics and subject matter, but would love to hear a Hip-Hop version. The EDM sound is okay for what it is, but I always feel that it takes away from the lyrics and meaning of the song. Nobody listens to a dance song and says "that was deep." I'd love to hear a reggae/Hip-Hop version with Jazzy's cuts on it.

I saw that the song is under Westbrook, so I'm assuming that's Will's independent label (a play off of Overbrook?) and that he officially cut ties with Interscope.  Hopefully the success snowballs, but at the same time, after "Get Lit" and the "Fiesta" remix, I really don't want an all-dance record.

Good thinking with the reviews. I'll get on it. 

I was thinking about an album sound too AJ. As much as I do enjoy the song and it is nice to have something different. I wouldn't want a whole album to be like that. 

Im also hoping if Will has an album recorded that this isn't the best song. Hopefully he's just released this because it could be popular and sound ok on radio.

with my energy focused on getting JJFP in the hall of fame getting another hit song leading to a classic album would certainly help the cause, hopefully this is the worst song like Switch on L&F or Freakin It on Willenium
