[April 19th, 2024] Today, GRAMMY award-winning, genre-bending R&B superstar Lucky Daye releases his new single “HERicane” via Keep Cool/RCA Records. Listen here and watch the official live performance video here.  Produced by longtime collaborator D’Mile, the dynamic track showcases his effervescent and soulful vocals over a guitar-laden, heavily rock-influenced beat, which sees Daye continue to defy the R&B genre. Lyrically, the track, which is co-written by Daye, D’Mile, Mike “Hunnid”McGregor, Frank Nitty, and Dustin “Dab” Bowie, leans into a more vulnerable space, ushering in a new musical era.

On “HERicane” Lucky states, “This song is about being grounded in a chaotic relationship. It’s important for people to be reminded that it’s a good time to be yourself and shine. Just be grounded and fierce in who you are.” 

“HERicane” is the first taste of new music from Lucky in 2024, following the release of his single “That’s You,” co-written and co-produced by award winning artist, Bruno Mars.

Lucky has been at the forefront of the R&B genre, earning 11 GRAMMY nominations so far in his career, securing a GRAMMY win for Best Progressive R&B Album for his EP Table for Two (2021), and earning a GRAMMY nomination for Best R&B Album for his sophomore album Candydrip (2022). The album’s breakout single “Over” hit the Billboard Hot 100, with Lucky delivering an electrifying performance of the track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and the BET Soul Train Awards.

GRAMMY-Award winning R&B star Lucky Daye discovered his love of music and natural gift for singing and songwriting early in life in his hometown of New Orleans. Displaced by the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Lucky moved to Atlanta for a brief stint and eventually ventured to Los Angeles to pursue his music dreams. After meeting producer D’Mile and working with him on his debut album Painted, Lucky fully realized his voice and potential. His undeniable talent as a vocalist took shape and landed him at his label home, Keep Cool, in partnership with RCA Records. 

In 2022, Lucky Daye received five nominations for the 65th annual GRAMMY Awards (including Album of the Year 2x for writing credits on Beyoncé ’s RENAISSANCE and Mary J. Blige’s Good Morning Gorgeous), performed his hit single “Over” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and released his sophomore album Candydrip. The album debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums Chart and #10 on the Billboard Current R&B Albums Chart, and upon release received critical acclaim from NPR, Complex, Rolling Stone, and Billboard, who hailed Daye’s latest effort as “immaculate, forward-thinking R&B.” In addition to Candydrip, Lucky has also released a number of collaborations including “Star” with Megan Thee Stallion, “Too Much” with Mark Ronson, “A Mess” with Ella Mai, “CYBAH” with Syd, and more.

Prior to these accolades, Daye won the GRAMMY Award for Best Progressive R&B album for his 2021 EP Table for Two, received nominations for four GRAMMY’s in 2019, including Best R&B Album and Best R&B Song, and released his explosive hit “Roll Some Mo” in late 2018. Lucky has also been nominated for an American Music Award, iHeart Radio Music Award, NAACP Image Award and more. He has notably performed for NPR Tiny Desk three times, as one of the only acts to ever do so.
