Lucky Daye made big waves with the release of his Grammy-nominated 2019 debut album Painted. His single “Roll Some Mo” spent 20 weeks on the R&B/Hip Hop Airplay chart.
The reemergence of R&B and Soul music within the last few years has been quite pleasing. Artists like Lucky Daye, Ella Mai, H.E.R., Bryson Tiller, Summer Walker, Given, SZA, Chloe X Halle, Ari Lennox, Teyana Taylor, and so many others have put new interest in R&B music and has turned the genre into a money-making machine.
Looking back at the 1990s and moving upwards towards the early to mid-2000s, R&B was indeed “POPular” music. It was normal to see your favorite R&B singer charting within the top ten of the Hot 100. However, that all changed when Hip Hop grew to become the most popular and profitable genre. Now, from the looks of things, the music industry may be taking another shift as R&B music makes its big comeback.
R&B singer Lucky Daye made big waves with the release of his Grammy-nominated 2019 debut album Painted. His single “Roll Some Mo” spent 20 weeks on the R&B/Hip Hop Airplay chart.
Now he is back with a new EP titled Table For Two. The seven-track project dropped just in time for Valentine’s Day. Lucky decided to take us back to the power of romantic duets, something that was a staple in R&B music. Each song features a collaboration from a different female singer. The voices of Yebba, Tiana Major9, Mahalia, Ari Lennox, Queen Naija, and Joyce Wrice are all heard throughout the EP.
In an interview with W Magazine, Lucky Daye speaks of his push to make a duet album. “I’ve been feeling like it’s time for women to take their rightful place in leadership roles. It’s their time to shine. Women need to be seen and heard, and I want to be a part of that.” – Lucky Daye.
Table For Two is available now on all streaming outlets.
