Lay Zhang has made his comeback with new album LIT and the title track of the same name.
The album has already collected new records in China, where it broke 9 certification records on the QQ Music platform after pre-orders went live, with the album surpassing 1.5 million pre-orders in just over 7 minutes.
For LIT, Lay aims to integrate Chinese instruments and cultural metaphors with Western music, with a mix of English and Mandarin lyrics. LIT itself is a play on words, as it sounds similar to the Chinese character 莲 (lian) which means lotus. Lotuses are seen as a flower that blossoms from dirt, and is a metaphor for Lay's two-part release with LIT.
