Lucky Daye and Grammy and Oscar-winning producer D’Mile will forever be bonded, mainly because the two were at similar crossroads in their careers before giving each other a musical rebirth. With multiple solid collaborations together under their belt, the two reunite for a new track titled “Running Blind.”
Serving as the lead offering from the Liberated / Music For The Movement Vol. 3 EP, out June 18, the song arrives just in time for Black Music Month and ahead of Juneteenth. Lyrically, he speaks about the uncertainty of life in America for Black people with lines like “strip a n*gga of his timeline” and how grinding is the only escape.
Daye, who appears on Sinéad Harnett’s most recent album, recently saluted Marvin Gaye on the 50th anniversary of What’s Going On with his take of “Mercy Mercy Me (The Eulogy).”
Additional headlines involving Daye last month included his performance of “How Much Can A Heart Take” with Yebba on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The song is taken from his all-female duets project Table for You, which arrived in February.
He secured his first RIAA certification for the song “Roll Some Mo,” too.
