Today, Memphis superproducer Tay Keith releases “Lights Off,” a scorching Gunna and Lil Durk-assisted track that marks his debut single as a solo artist. Listen HERE via Warner Records. Laced with melodic flows, effortless cool, and an evolved version of Keith’s signature sound, “Lights Off” is an auspicious start to a new era for the 25-year-old and his Drumatized (DOA) label.
Coasting over rapid hi-hats and moody synths, Durk and Gunna trade memorable flexes and come-up tales. The track is both proof of Keith’s curatorial skills and a sign of what’s to come from Tay Keith the artist. Since producing the Drake-assisted “Look Alive” for his fellow Memphis native BlocBoy JB in 2018, Tay Keith’s career has been an extended winning streak.

That same year, he produced “Sicko Mode,” the 10-times Platinum Travis Scott single that peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Around this same time, he produced Drake’s “Nonstop,” which hit No. 2 on the same chart.
Since then, Keith has produced for everyone from Lil Baby to Miley Cyrus and Beyoncé, collecting more than 25 RIAA-certified plaques on his way to becoming an A-list producer. Now, he’s set to do the same as a solo artist.
“I want to show that I can do a lot of different shit,” the hitmaker says. “I feel like this is an elevation.” With an undeniable calling card like “Lights Off,” Keith is destined to soar to new heights.
