THE B-SIDE
Lil Tjay (Columbia)
10/22/19
 

WHAT IT IS: Before the 18-year-old NYC native became an internet heartthrob with streams in the multi-millions, he was just a kid from the Bronx, who expressed an equal love for Jay-Z and Justin Bieber. His mother’s favorite artists (Usher, Michael Jackson) taught him melody, a catalyst for Tjay’s embryonic hip-hop stardom. The infectious hook in “Brothers” would lead to his first smash hit, earning him 180m combined streams. Follow-up “None of Your Love” delved into deeper R&B waters to express a pitbull’s puppy love. With 10.2m Spotify listeners and platinum SoundCloud status, Tjay is a rapidly rising star.
