Am Freitag erschien das lang erwartete Debütalbum von Lil Tjay, der spätestens seit dem Cover der XXL Freshmanclass 2020 von sich reden machte.
Nun ist das erste Album „Destined 2 Win“ des 19jährigen Multi-Platin Rappers mit Features von 6LACK, Polo G, Fivio Foreign, Moneybagg Yo, Offset, Saweetie, Toosi und Tyga. Das Album umfasst 3 Bonus-Tracks von Lil Tjay und Produktionen von 808 Melo auf „Go Crazy“ und G-ry, Og Parker, Smash David und El patron auf dem Track „Move2″
„The reason I named the album Destined 2 Win cause I always felt like I had something in me that was going to be great. It’s just a body of work to highlight my accomplishments,” says Lil Tjay. “I’m still trying to figure out my lane. Whatever happened in my life is what got me here. If I didn’t go through some of these experiences then I probably wouldn’t be myself. There’s always obstacles, I’m pretty sure there’s going to be more obstacles and I just know I’m going to be able to fight through it. You know? Destined 2 Win.”

Und das sagt die internationale Presse:
Listen to Lil Tjay’s New Album ‘Destined 2 Win’ f/ 6lack, Polo G, Fivio Foreign, and More
“Lil Tjay has accomplished a lot in rap over the last two years, and he can’t even legally drink yet. The 19-year-old rapper crooned his way to a now-platinum certified debut album with True 2 Myself, and now Destined 2 Win finds Tjay looking to make magic happen twice. The 21-track project is reflective of Tjay’s growth, highlighting his ability to make a hit, as shown on the 6lack assisted “Calling My Phone,” and that he can work well with others—like when he links up with Fivio Foreign and Polo G on “Headshot.”

“The self-proclaimed „Prince of New York,“ Lil Tjay, proves he isn’t about to get caught up in a sophomore slump. The Bronx native offers fans his second studio album, Destined 2 Win.The LP features the previously released track „Headshot“ featuring Polo G and Fivio Foreign, „Call My Phone“ with 6lack and „Born 2 Be Great.“ Moneybagg Yo, Offset, Saweetie, Toosii, Tyga and more are on the album as well. Before dropping the 21-track effort, though, Lil Tjay dropped a documentary to coincide with the album, which showcases the 2020 XXL Freshman’s knack for storytelling over trap and drill-infused production. The rapper also offers a softer side to his album that is full of love-lost musing.”
