Today, Lil Tjay unveils the vulnerable, tell-all single â€œJune 22ndâ€ via Columbia Records. With a blend of melodic prowess, a New York sound and captivating storytelling, the 22-year-old platinum rapper foreshadows his experience and trauma on the days leading up to him being shot on â€œJune 22nd.â€ The new single is accompanied by the Dell Nie directed music video where Lil Tjay recounts the day that changed his life a year ago.
Packed with energy, paranoia and thought-provoking lyrics, Lil Tjay reflects on the song,Â â€œItâ€™s been a long road. A year ago being in New York City for the first time without security didnâ€™t think itâ€™d change my life, but it did and Iâ€™m blessed to have a second chance.â€
â€œJune 22ndâ€ is lifted from Lil Tjayâ€™s forthcoming new albumÂ 222, dropping July 14. This project showcases Lil Tjayâ€™s growth and evolution as an artist and is the first body of work since his 2021 platinum-certified release ofÂ Destined 2 Win.Â
