Rising R&B talent Lucky Daye released his first album Painted Friday (May 24). The 13-track collection features production primarily from Grammy-award winning producer D’Mile, with one song, “Love You Too Much,” produced by another Grammy-award recipient, DJ Camper.
The New Orleans native released two EPs in November 2018 and February, respectively, titled I and II, leading up to his debut album. I received critical acclaim from supporters and music critics alike, with NPR Music asserting him as one of the “10 Kings of R&B for 2018.” They continued proclaiming “his versatility and strategic fusions of funk and jazz on I nod to how he might set himself apart come 2019.”

This album is my first baby. Its where my heart hides. Its a colorful window that is exclusively open to the truest form(s) of love. It is a letter to you. You who judge me, you who hate me, you who talk love but never show me. You who watched me kill myself to love you. You who I should have loved but missed out on, You who I loved wrong. You who i want to have more of and it kills me because i can't help it. You who I only want to be next to.
