Influential, global icon and China’s top superstar LAY (Lay Zhang) drops his final component of the LIT album today, by Zhang Yixing Studio, which comes to completion with the last six songs for the twelve-track album. Following the record-breaking success of the first six songs of LIT, LAY continues to bridge two cultures and two sounds in a unique cross-cultural blend, while showcasing his personal growth in his artistry. LAY most recently released the perfect summer anthem BOOM, where LAY gracefully forged together tropical and hip-hop elements. To date, the first part of the album surpassed over 13 million streams, and the music video for LIT has been viewed more than 10 million times.
LAY creates a sensational, cross-cultural music style all of his own by using traditional Chinese instruments and modern hip-hop beats for a new innovative sound interlaced with English and Mandarin lyrics. Each track was co-written and co-produced by LAY to ensure his message and story are infused in each song. For the full album, LAY teamed up with GRAMMY Award-winning producers Scott Storch (50 Cent, Beyoncé, DJ Khaled, Snoop Dogg) and Murda Beatz (Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, Drake) to finish his vision. LIT is LAY’s final contribution to his groundbreaking cross-cultural hip-hop album that has been highly-awaited by fans.
