Like a Historic Movie: EXO’s Lay Shared Teaser for Upcoming Song “Lit”

The MV is made for the title song of Lay’s 4th solo album ”Lotus”.

The Chinese member of the popular boy band EXO, commonly known as the Kings of K-Pop, Lay dropped a teaser for the music video “Lit” for the upcoming release under the same name on 27 May.

The teaser proves that Lay (also known as Zhang Yixing or Lay Zhang) is a unique artist: he is known for his involvement in every part of the production process - from writing his own music to the concept itself. Even the teaser looks like an action movie with the traditional Chinese Opera singing the famous "Song of Gaixia”. This describes the last moment of legendary General Xiang Yu, and perfectly fits with what is going on in the teaser.

The song “Jade” was also inspired by “The Song of Gaxia” and Lay sang the part of the Chinese traditional opera himself as well as playing traditional instruments.

With his fourth album Lay went further and combined Western and Chinese culture: the first part of the album will be dedicated to the legacy of Chinese traditional music and will be out only in digital format on 1 June. The second part will be more trendy and western and it will also be available as a physical copy. 

​Full of mysterious Chinese culture, teaser intrigued fans and and started to trend #LIT_LayZhang and the hashtag captured the top place with the words of admiration for the talented artist.
