By Meikhel PhilogenePublished 2 years ago 3 min read

Lily Jay makes her return following a five-year hiatus with "Turn Off The Lights." Since her 2017 hit, "Renovate," which landed on the charts, Australian-native Lily Jay has blown-up and become very popular on social media. She has garnered over 1 million followers on TikTok. The international sensation got back to her singing roots and belts out a sensual, catchy Pop jam with Hip-Hop/Rap flair.

"Turn Off The Lights" is about the "good" part of being in a toxic relationship. The record is about the lust and love within a toxic relationship..."when the sexual chemistry is undeniable, even though you both know you’re not good for each other." Lily Jay continues, "You may be broken up, but you still think about the good times when the 'lights turn off,' and would give up anything to feel that sexual feeling again."

Lily Jay really shows off her songwriting and producing skills, serving as a co-writer and co-producer of "Turn Off The Lights." ANTROPOLAND had a hand in producing the tropical, spacey, and poppy beat. MAYAMIKO aided in the writing and also featured on the track providing high-energy rapping. Lily Jay is currently touring around America and recently did a promo commercial with the legendary Mike Tyson. Lily Jay is ready to dominate the industry; it's lights-out for the competition.

How did you get your artist name?

It's my actual name! I always hated it as a kid, but now I love and embrace it!

What city are you from and where are you based now?

I was born in Brisbane, Australia and currently live in the Gold Coast, Australia; however, I am currently traveling in Europe doing a few gigs and guest performances.

At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music? How did you get started?

I began my career as a professional dancer. I began my singing career in 2017. I was 23; this was when I released my first single, ‘Renovate,’ in collaboration with XY LATU, winner of The Voice Australia. However, after this release, I took a step back from the industry. This year, I've decided to release “Turn Off The Lights” and will be following it with a whole album in the coming months! I decided that I wanted to give my music career my all and see where it takes me! I love creating music and hopefully it will inspire others.

After ‘Turn Off The Lights,” I will be releasing an album! It will be releasing in the coming months! This is something that I've been working on for over one year and is super, super close to my heart.
