Lil Tjay - 'June 22nd'

  • 2 min read

Today, Lil Tjay unveils the vulnerable, tell-all single ‘June 22nd’ via Columbia Records and Sony Music Entertainment Australia.

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 ‘June 22nd’. 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. An immensely significant project to Tjay, it centers around his near-fatal incident last June, having miraculously survived seven gunshot wounds.

Packed with energy, paranoia and thought-provoking lyrics, Lil Tjay reflects on the song, “Its been a long road. A year ago being in New York City for the first time without security didn't think it'd change my life, but it did and I'm blessed to have a second chance.”

‘June 22nd ’ is lifted from Lil Tjay’s forthcoming new album '222', dropping soon on July 14th. This project showcases Lil Tjay’s growth and evolution as an artist and is the first body of work since his 2021 platinum-certified release of 'Destined 2 Win'.

Lil Tjay has captivated the rap scene at a young age with his signature swag and blaring bars that have garnered him an audience of millions. His 2X platinum-certified debut album 'True 2 Myself' features his 5X platinum-certified hit ‘F.N.’, 3X platinum-certified ‘Brothers’ and double platinum-certified ‘Leaked’, platinum-certified ‘Hold On’, ‘Ruthless’, ‘One Take’ and ‘GOAT’.

His hit 4X platinum-certified collab release ‘Calling My Phone’ featuring 6LACK debuted at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became Lil Tjay’s highest chart debut and career chart peak. Lil Tjay has accumulated over 9.3 billion global streams across all releases and was featured as one of XXL’s Freshman Class 2020 and Billboard’s 21 Under 21.
