[Los Angeles, NY – February 6, 2019] Today, Lucky Daye releases II, which is the second installment of his debut album Painted, set for release later this spring viaKeep Cool/RCA Records. Click HERE to listen.
He initially teased the arrival of II with the single “Karma” a few weeks ago.
Straight out of the gate, it attracted critical praise with Complex writing, “If you’re in search for a fresh-faced addition to your playlists, we’ve got you covered today with [‘Karma’]…There’s a range of audible influences to his sound, as the New Orleans native throws in elements of funk and soul into an experimental R&B package.”
II follows the release of Lucky’s I, which is comprised of the first five tracks from Painted and includes Lucky’s debut single “Roll Some Mo.” To date, the track has been streamed over 8 million times worldwide and was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist upon release. NPR touted him among “10 Kings of R&B For 2018,” claiming, “His versatility and strategic fusions of funk and jazz on I nod to how he might set himself apart come 2019.” Additionally, I received critical praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, FADER, Complex, ESSENCE, Pigeons & Planes and more.
Kicking off on February 12th in Vancouver, Lucky will hit the road with Ella Mai on her “The Debut Tour” this spring. Handpicked by Ella, he will perform alongside Kiana Ledé. See below for full tour routing.
Last month he made headlines by becoming Vevo’s latest DSCVR Artist for 2019—an honor shared with previous alumni, including Sam Smith, Billie Eilish, Tove Lo, and many more. Watch his VEVO DSCVR performances of “Roll Some Mo” and “Concentrate.”

ABOUT LUCKY DAYE:
Born and raised in New Orleans, he spent his formative years in a religious cult—of which his mother was a member. Barred from any and all “secular music,” he taught himself melodies by singing Bible verses and Dr. Seuss rhymes. Once mom fled the cult, life quieted until Hurricane Katrina hit and literally washed life as he knew it away. The family fled to Tyler, TX, but Lucky aimed to launch a career in music. He made his way to Atlanta, where he spent some time recording before seeking a brighter future in music and road tripping to LA. Once there, he met D’Mile and crafted Painted, which takes you through a journey of Lucky’s life experiences.
Released under Keep Cool/RCA Records, his story unfolds by way of the smoky full-spectrum R&B on the record. With the release of Painted, Lucky enters the music world with a powerful debut, leaving his footprint and fortifying the groundwork to become the next rising star in R&B.
