Stream Dondria Nicole’s New EP ‘The Day of the Don’

Dondria Nicole returns with her brand new EP titled The Day of the Don. The six-track offering features production from Grammy Award winning producer Bryan-Michael Cox, Yonni, Mello and The Penhouse.

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.

Xavier Omar Pink Lightning EP

Rising R&B artist Xavier Omär is back with his brand new EP titled Pink Lightning via Never Sleep Music/EMPIRE. The five-track offering takes fans on a journey through Omär’s many emotions involving love and relationships.

The EP opens with the lead track “Runnin’ Round,” which is about drawing a line between you and your inconsistent love interest. He gets “Stuck” on the second track, where he sings about wanting to be happily together with his lover. On “Change on Me” featuring singer Leuca, Omär hopes his love interest doesn’t change the way she feels about him.

Omär strips away the beat on “The Title” to put an emphasis on just the lyrics. On the beautiful tune, he asks for his relationship to be official. “This record was originally acapella but I then made it into a pop song because I decided not to keep it,” Omär wrote on Genius. “I recorded it to the new beat and actually tried to get it to Sam Smith, but that connect never happened. The only reason this song is on the project is because I played it for some friends at Masego’s house in LA and they were like ‘when does THIS drop?” I had lost the files so I said, “It’s not, I lost the files.” My friend Courtney Bennet said in her beautiful British accent ‘just re-record it.'”

Omär will launch his supporting Pink Lightning Tour on November 28 in Chicago. The tour will hit major cities across North America including D.C., Boston, New York, Houston, Los Angeles and Seattle.

Pink Lightning follows Omär’s 2016 project, The Everlasting Wave, which featured his most popular song to date “Blind Man.” The track has accumulated over 16 million streams on Spotify.
