After much anticipation, multi-platinum rapper Lil Tjay releases his new song “Calling My Phone” featuring 6LACK today via Columbia Records. Listen to the G Ry (of Laugh Now, Cry Later fame), Bordeaux & Non Native produced track HERE. Watch the Cam Busby (Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stallion) directed video HERE.
The track follows the overwhelming positive response Lil Tjay received from anticipating fans last December, after releasing a 20 second snippet of the then untitled song. Since the teaser, listeners across social media have embraced the rapper’s new sound, with the snippet already featured in over 100k fan-created Tik Tok videos. The unexpected yet unsurprising popularity stirred eager fans to start a petition for the 19-year-old rapper to release the work in progress early. The wait is finally over with the addition of rapper and singer 6LACK, who blends his authentic, signature R&B sound on “Call My Phone” — delivering the fresh feature the song called for. Lil Tjay and 6lack team up on the new track to touch on love, relationship endings and moving forward.
Lil Tjay has captivated the rap scene with his signature swag and blaring bars that have garnered him an audience of millions. His latest project, the State Of Emergency Mixtape follows the release of Lil Tjay’s platinum-certified debut album True 2 Myself. The album is responsible for the triple platinum-certified hit “F.N.,” double platinum-certified “Brothers,” platinum-certified “Leaked,” “Hold On” and “Ruthless” as well as the Gold-certified “Laneswitch,” “One Take” and “Goat.” Tjay released the Gold-certified song “20/20” before joining forces once again with Polo G on “First Place” – the follow up to their 5x Platinum-certified breakout hit “Pop Out.” which landed on Billboard, Uproxx, and Complex’s Best of 2019 year end lists.
