“22GFAY DROPS “RED LIGHTS” AHEAD OF FORTHCOMING ALBUM “STAY 4 A LIL”

San Diego’s 22Gfay is rapidly garnering streams with his newest and largely-anticipated single, Red Lights. The single serves as the most recent offering from his forthcoming album, “STAY 4 A LIL”, which is set to drop in late October.

The somber track incorporates poignant lyrics revealing the brutal cycle of a dysfunctional connection and the effects of self-indulging in unwholesome coping mechanisms. The song allows listeners to follow the immersive mind of 22gfay with assistance from featured artist MCM Raymond.

“As an artist, I’ve been a lot of different people. I’ve been 200 pounds; I’ve been 130 pounds. I’ve been someone who doesn’t dance at all on stage to someone who is dancing and trying their best and I think, ‘Oh man, I struggle with the artist thing,’ but writing was where I felt like a person, and I had value and showed that I was smart. It was beyond ‘Am I pretty? Am I liked?’ and that meant everything to me. It made me feel like a person that was doing something worth something. Basically, receiving this award validates my entire career… Thank you for seeing me,” she said.

The Hal David Starlight Award has been awarded to numerous iconic artists, including John Legend, Ne-Yo, Drake, Lil Nas X, and Post Malone. “This is such an exciting time for songwriters and music. Phenomenal artists like Beyoncé and Taylor Swift are pushing the envelope of what success looks like but who could argue that the last two years belong to SZA,” SHOF Chairman Nile Rodgers said. “Incredible songwriting, incredible performances, incredible artistry. She so deserves to be the 2024 recipient of the Hal David Starlight Award!”
