  • Darnell, Lit Up and 2hot were accidentally leaked late March 2022 through a link to the test build of an unreleased update found in the GitHub repository for Friday Night Funkin'.[1][2] The songs were confirmed to be real as PhantomArcade revealed that IvanAlmighty was the one who did the voice for Darnell in these songs.[3]
    • While the song remains mostly the same, there are some differences between the leaked version of the song and the finalized version that appears in WeekEnd 1 that makes the final version sound considerably different overall.
      • The audio mixing was slightly tweaked and some instruments were altered or removed during certain sections.
      • The length of the song has been slightly extended from 1:56 to 2:07 due to a new bar being introduced at the end of the song.
      • New instruments such as a wind instrument and sound effects like a knife slashing sound were added.
      • There are now several pauses throughout the instrumental.
