Lil Tjay releases sophomore album 'Destined 2 Win'

04/12/2021 08:02:36 PM

Multi-platinum rapper Lil Tjay recently released his highly anticipated sophomore album Destined 2 Win.

Released via Columbia Records, the South Bronx native solidifies himself as a creative force to be reckoned with, with this 21-track album featuring a wide range of diverse collaborations from 6LACK, Polo G, Fivio Foreign, Moneybagg Yo, Offset, Saweetie, Toosi, and Tyga. It also has three bonus tracks from Lil Tjay and production credits from 808 Melo on “Go Crazy” and G-Ry, OG Parker, Smash David, and El Patron on the track “Move.”

This new album proceeds the 19-year-old rapper’s platinum-certified 2019 debut album True 2 Myself.
"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 are 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 them. You know? Destined 2 Win.”
To prove this further, LilTjay made a late-night TV debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on April 8 with a performance of the global smash “Calling My Phone” with 6LACK.

This track received over 60 million streams globally in the first week and has exploded worldwide with instant chart success hitting No. 1 in Canada, No. 2 in the UK, NZ, Ireland, No. 3 in Australia and Norway, and more around the world. It also peaked became Lil Tjay’s highest chart debut and career chart peak after hitting the number 3 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Calling My phone has amassed over 250 million global streams to date and has been certified GOLD in less than a month in the U.S., Canada, Switzerland, and Ireland.

Lifted off the album, Destined 2 Win follows the release of his latest single “Headshot” featuring new school rap royalty Fivio Foreign and Polo G. Since its debut, “Headshot” has already acquired 23 million global combined streams and over 6 million video views. Watch the trifecta live lavish in the Reel Goats directed official visual below.
