Lil Jon Speaks on ‘Turn Down For What’ Success

Lil Jon’s hip-hop/dance crossover with DJ Snake, “Turn Down For What,” has proven to be a massive success. Currently #1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and #9 on its Hot 100 chart, the track marks Jon’s first major hit as a lead artist since “Snap Yo Fingers” in 2006.
While “Turn Down For What” is Jon’s first top 10 hit in nearly eight years, the Atlanta-based DJ/producer has been a relevant force in the EDM community over the last couple years. In 2010, Jon landed his first Las Vegas DJ residency and has been a regular at Ultra Music Festival. He’s also released and been featured on numerous club bangers.
In a recent interview with Billboard, Lil Jon discussed how “Turn Down For What” came about and what its success means to him. You can read the inspiring interview here.
