Lucky Daye has been serving up sweet treats with bops such as those found on his latest album ‘Candydrip.’
Yet, the R&B crooner has revealed that he very nearly was a part of another resonating project – Silk Sonic‘s album.
Appearing on BBC 1Xtra, the singer shared with DJ Ace that not only was he in close proximity to the sessions between Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak and their producer D’Mile, he was almost involved in the project.
“I was in the studio,” he explained when asked if he was around for the recording of Silk Sonic’s attention-grabbing music.
“I was so shy. I’m literally shy. And I look up to Bruno [Mars] so much. He don’t know that. He don’t know that I know every single song, every single inflection, every single rift, every single chord, every single interpolation. I know these. I’ve sat in hotel rooms alone in the dark with no money listening to Bruno, he don’t know that and I still never told him.”
DJ Ace continued to ask if Lucky Daye had ever been considered for membership in the Grammy Award-winning duo.
“Probably, but then I wouldn’t have made Candy Drip,” Daye explained.
Still, the potential for the trio to become official is still present.
“You have Anderson [.paak] on the drums, you could put me on the bass, Bruno on the guitar. That would be nuts…Yes, it’s still room. I think we have a mutual respect for each other…I think it’s time. I don’t think he’s gonna force it. I don’t think Im gonna force it. I know I’m not gonna force it. It will happen when or if it’s supposed to happen.”
