Two EPs and a lead single later, Lucky Daye has set an official release date to weave colors across his debut album canvas. Billboard reports the emerging singer-songwriter’s Painted album will arrive on Friday, May 24 via Keep Cool/RCA Records.
While discussing his rise to stardom and his lack of music talks with his mother, who was in a religious cult, an interesting cutaway to his first full-length record revealed the issue date. When asked if he was going to disclose the upcoming album details with his mom, he responded to the writer in an unconcerned way.
“Nah. [Laughs.] Because I don’t think I’m going to like what she says. I don’t wanna be disappointed,” he said. “I didn’t do this for her. I didn’t do it for a response. If I wanted to get on her good side, I probably would have did whatever she said. I already been through shit where [she turned her] back on me.”
He continued, “That track was slowed down. We pitched it up and we pitched it faster. It was recorded way slower, it was recorded way lower. It was a song that I was trying to sing as a kid to my grown self or as a kid to my pops. I saw a lot of my pops in me at this point in terms of girls and relationships. I never had seen a relationship, like a successful one.”
“Roll Some Mo,” I’s lead single, became his first top 10 hit on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart and on urban adult contemporary radio.
In late April, Daye premiered his first offering from Painted titled “Love You Too Much.”
