Early on in life, Lucky Daye discovered his love of music and natural gift for singing and songwriting in the musical melting pot that is New Orleans, where he was born. Ultimately Lucky knew he wanted to pursue music as a career so he moved to Atlanta for a brief stint and eventually ventured to Los Angeles to pursue his dream. He was shortly thereafter picked up by Keep Cool under RCA Records, where he recorded his 2019 breakthrough hit “Roll Some Mo” which has aggregated over 60 million streams worldwide.

“…Far ahead of his competition in the genre. Daye’s forlorn vocal manipulation has drawn comparison to Frank Ocean, but his versatility and strategic fusions of funk and jazz nod to how he might set himself apart…”– NPR

“Lucky Daye can do it all. The versatility of his music makes him hard to box in one genre [and] shows elements of his skillfulness with songs full of strings, funk and tempo.” – HYPEBEAST

Arin Ray Enlist Dram for His New Single Communication

Interscope Records recording artist Arin Ray releases his second single, “Communication,” which is now available at all digital retailers. The Cincinnati crooner nabs platinum hit-maker DRAM for his new record about love. “Communication” finds newcomer Arin Ray singing over a pop-leaning R&B beat courtesy of producer Childish Major (Future/J. Cole.). The message which strings together his list of promises to his new lover is tightly held together by soothing guitar baselines and drumkits. The singer/songwriter pens, “I know better than to cheat / you deserve the best from me.”

The Midwest-born singer released his YG assisted track “We Ain’t Homies,” in December and joined H.E.R on The Lights On tour. The upcoming album has recruited some heavy hitting producers such as Terrace Martin (Kendrick Lamar), Nez and Rio (A$AP Rocky/ScHoolboy Q). Last year proved to be a promising year for the young talent who shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. You can catch Arin Ray performing Valentine’s Day in Los Angeles with Victoria Monet.

About

Ray was born with music in his blood. His father was the drummer for early ‘90s new jack swing groups New Edition, Bell Biv DeVoe, and the Babyface-fronted After 7, and his aunt sang background vocals for Marvin Gaye. A week after graduating high school, Ray moved to Los Angeles, where he hooked up with production team the Underdogs, who invited him to work in their studio. Over the course of the next few years, Ray racked up writing credits on songs for Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, John Legend, Jason Derulo, and K. Michelle while gearing up to make his own music.
