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.

Kiana Ledé Releases Debut EP ‘Selfless’

Rising singer Kiana Ledé has released her first EP titled Selfless. The eight-song set includes her A$AP-Ferg assisted track “Fairplay (Remix),” which has over 10 million streams.

Speaking on the track, Ledé told Genius, “I just broke up with someone, because I got cheated on. I was in that phase right when you break up where I was really angry, and everything that I did was it was calculated, and I was thinking, ‘What if he sees this?’ Everybody goes through that part.

The EP also includes a guest appearance from her Republic Records labelmate Blackway on the second track, “Shame.”

After spending years quietly developing her skills as a songwriter and singer, Ledé became a veritable sensation. To date, she has generated 50 million-plus views across her YouTube/Vevo channels. In addition to her music, she recently landed a co-starring role on Rev Run’s new Netflix series set to air in 2018 and starred in season 2 of MTV’s hit show Scream.

This would not have been the same without you. 💙 My album lands at midnight ET, TONIGHT. 🛸This project has everything from ethereal trap to 90s r&b feels.
