With “BOOM,” Lay brings the perfect summertime track that boasts of airy tropical beats merged with hip-hop elements. The track is smooth in its approach. The track has a very relaxed tone to it, one that will definitely get listeners on board with it.

On his forthcoming album, Lay has teamed up with GRAMMY Award-winning producer and songwriter Scott Storch. The producer/songwriter has also worked with ace artists such as 50 Cent, Beyoncé, DJ Khaled and Snoop Dogg.

Scott Storch has worked with Lay on the last six songs featured on the final piece of LIT. The second part of his LIT album is set to demonstrate a versatile blend of hip-hop and Mandopop.

Lay worked with producer Murda Beatz (Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, Drake) on the first six songs of the previous album. LIT is a handcrafted masterpiece featuring twelve tracks. Not only has LAY co-written each of the tracks, he also co-produced them as well. 

Lay has impressed with his musical prowess especially after his third album NAMANANA that put him on the Billboard 200 chart and he became the first Chinese artist to enter the iTunes Top 60 in the US. Besides this, the singer received tremendous success this year internationally as well after featuring alongside will.i.am on Steve Aoki’s track “Love You More,” that reached No. 1 on the QQ Music China chart.
