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).

Backed by beautiful strings and a piano, the New Orléans native relies on the attachment from her soulmate to make things right when she’s feeling down about life.

“Love me, with all of your heart / Will you love me / When things get too hard, and I need you more / Make sure you’re sure, that you’ll love me all the way,” sings Ledisi.

Adrian Marcel Announces ‘GMFU Tour’ Dates

Adrian Marcel will hit the road this winter to support his debut album, GMFU (Got Me Fucked Up).

Starting on February 20, the Oakland, Calif. native will bring his smooth vocals to Atlanta at VINYL. He will travel to other cities on the east and west coast including New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Sacramento. The tour will conclude on March 8 at New Parish in San Francisco.

Last May, Rated R&B chatted with Marcel about his oft-delayed debut album and his most personal song from the project. “Eastside Story” because it was only two people who had anything to do with it — me and Jan Hancock. We produced it. We wrote it. Arranged it. Recorded it. It was the first record that we recorded in the process of doing this album.”

See his tour dates below.
