Lay Zhang caught up with Billboard’s Desire Thompson on the red carpet at the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 10), chatting about who he wants to meet at the event, why it means so much for him to be there, and more.
Speaking of being able to attend the Grammys, Zhang tells Billboard, “I’m so excited to be here and I’m looking forward to tonight’s show. This is my first time to be here and I hope in the future I can perform on this stage.”
Asked what it would mean to him to one day be able to perform at the event, he replies that even though he might speak a different language, it would mean a great deal to him. “We can use music [as] communication,” he says. “To get a lot of friendship. So I think here is a very amazing place, and my dream stage.”
Posed with the question of who he is hoping to see at the Grammys, Zhang names Drake, Lady Gaga, and Camila Cabello.
He also opens up about getting to collaborate with Steve Aoki and A$AP Ferg, describing that opportunity as “a dream,” and calling Ferg a “very nice person” and his “bro.”
