R&B fans, this is your Lucky Daye. As one of the most valuable R&B players on the evolving music scene, the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter celebrates the one-year anniversary of his Painted album with two new songs.
Daye calls on his Jamaican bros Chronixx and MediSun for the second alternate version of his debut single “Roll Some Mo.” Their Rastaman personas and dabs of hypnotic reggae flavor add new meaning to the title of this match-up jam.
For “Shoulda,” his second offering, Daye overturns the record bin and interpolates Toni Braxton’s massive hit “Love Shoulda Brought You Home.” Babyface, the legendary genius behind Braxton’s breakout hit, offers a natural blend of vocal undertones on the cleverly-executed record about a dysfunctional-relationship.
“So you wanna do this / Let’s take it from the top, top, top / Thought a nigga could trust you/ But obviously not, not, not / There you go changin’ stories but, baby, just stop / I’m fucked up baby / I’m fucked up, girl / I believed your lies / Thought your heart was true / Where was your heart last night when I needed you?,” Daye sings above the relaxed guitar pricks.
Since the top of 2020, Daye has been a constant presence in music. He released “Fade Away” as part of his contribution to The Photograph soundtrack, as well as the first remix of “Roll Some Mo” with Ty Dolla $ign and Wale.
Still, Daye is ready to unleash more new music from his vault. He recently hinted on his official Instagram that he’s more than one project that will be dropping sometime soon.
Daye’s next projects will be the first collectives of tunes since his Painted debut. The album was nominated for Best R&B Album at the 62nd Grammy Awards. It also made a noteworthy position on Rated R&B’s top 30 R&B albums of 2019 list.
