Lucky Daye Releases New Album ‘Candydrip

New Orleans-native, R&B powerhouse Lucky Daye releases his highly-anticipated new album Candydrip via Keep Cool/RCA Records.

Listen/Stream Candydrip HERE.

Produced by longtime collaborator D’Mile, Candydrip explores Daye’s redefinition of modern R&B through a futuristic, Sci-Fi world, shaped by the inspiration of Afrofuturism. The 17-track body of work is the taste of a new era for Lucky, one that celebrates his rise to stardom, while still bringing listeners on a ride they’ve never experienced before. Also, along for the journey are collaborators and friends – rapper Smino, modern Chicagodrill zeitgeist Lil Durk, and synth-soul group Chiiild.

Candydrip continues the sensory experience that Lucky first introduced with Paintedonly this time, it’s taste over sight. “Candydrip focuses mostly on flavors,” he explains, “and the idea of flavors versus Painted, which was about colors. These are a bunch of different flavors of songs, giving you ear candy in different ways.”

Daye’s most recent single “NWA” ft. Lil Durk received praise from NPR, The FADER, BET, and HotNewHipHop who hailed the track as having “addictive and earworm-esque melodies to ensure this song will be stuck in your head long after you stop listening.” The album also features previous singles Candy Drip and Over,” both of which were also met with critical acclaim upon release. Daye delivered an electrifying performance of “Over” on the BET Soul Train Awards last fall where he was also nominated for Best Male R&B Artist. Watch HERE. Daye also recently performed “Over” as a surprise guest with Musiq Soulchild during his Verzuz with Anthony Hamilton.
