Dondria Nicole Sets Release Date for ‘The Day of the Don’ EP

Dondria Nicole has announced the release date for her new EP, The Day of the Don. Originally set to drop last year, Nicole has revealed her new project will be available on July 4.

Along with her announcement, Dondria also shared the official artwork, which features her in a gold ensemble designed by Angel Brinks with a crown.

In an open letter to fans, Dondria explained her journey creating the project.

If I could describe this 2 year journey in one word, it would be: NECESSARY.

I started out lost and confused. Misunderstood. Broken. Insecure. Yearning for something I couldn’t quite put my finger on. I had lost friends who no longer saw it fit to be around. I walked away from love. My peers were passing me by. My manager @jmo_74 and I packed up our baggage & comfort levels and moved across the country to Los Angeles: the city of angels… and demons. At this point my walls were so thick, Hercules couldn’t break them down. I tried to find inspiration and motivation from all the wrong people, places, and things. The art I was creating was amazing but it was at the cost of me. I was self-destructing. Cut to the scene where the locks to the place I called home were changed on me, the people I called teammates stole money from me… OH and my anxiety is at an all time high. The Lord stripped me of everything to remind me all I ever needed was HIM. Once in complete darkness, I started seeing the light. And that’s when God started replenishing it all piece by piece. He started rebuilding my team, showering me with inspiration and opportunity, ​ and creating a brand new Dondria. The Day of the Don is the first body of work I’ve released since 2010 and embodies every single piece of me and what I’ve been through. Releasing July 4th.

Last week, Dondria held a private listening session for her EP hosted by Ty Hunter (Beyoncé’s stylist).

Keyshia Cole Announces ‘Ride’ as Next Single

Without an official radio impact date, Keyshia Cole teases Kamiayah-assisted track as her new single from 11:11 Reset.

In a series of Instagram posts, the “I Ain’t Thru” songstress shared snippets of the Drumma Boy produced track, captioning “Coming next 🔥🔥.”

The wavy track, sampling Tupac Shakur’s “Hail Mary,” finds the Oakland pair sittin’ on ready and ready to pull up on anyone who gets out of line. “One hundred, nothing fake about me / She better watch what she say about me, ” claps Keysh.

Lyricist Kamiyah is mean with her delivery, too. “I got some bitches outside that’ll ride for me / No lie, two times, they’ll die for me,” spits the rising rapper.

11:11 Reset is available digitally and in stores now.

Crank up “Ride,” and remind haters they don’t want no problems.
