Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Kenyon Dixon has returned with his new single “Lucky.”
Regarding his new single, Dixon tells Rated R&B, “‘Lucky’ is my ode to Black women — the magic they are effortlessly and the magic they create. I took a very classic approach with this one and wanted to especially highlight the soul all around.”
“Lucky” is the follow-up to Dixon’s “Slow Dancing (Remix)” with Kevin Ross, released in May.
Before that, Dixon dropped the original version of “Slow Dancing” in March, nearly a month after joining Jon Vinyl on his “Pressure (Remix).”
Closer was ranked No. 9 on Rated R&B’s 30 Best R&B Albums of 2022 list. Rated R&B’s Danielle Brissett wrote, “Closer delivers a direct aural experience that’ll invigorate any true R&B fan. If Dixon makes you fall back in love with music, then he has completed a job well done.”
In an interview with Rated R&B, Dixon shared how he hoped fans would feel listening to the album. “I want people to fall in love with music again, and I mean, really love it. When you love music, the way we did, it came with a certain kind of support that we haven’t seen,” Dixson told Rated R&B.
He continued, “I think the lack of support that would be comparable to what we’ve seen is because people don’t feel connected to music anymore. They’re just hearing a bunch of songs. We’re not even getting albums, so it’s impossible for anything to be cohesive.”
