Candydrip, Lucky Daye’s highly anticipated new album, was released last month. Candydrip is the product of Daye’s long-standing collaborative endeavor with D’Mile: a conceptual sci-fi world shaped by Afrofuturism inspires Daye’s new definition of modern R&B. With 17 tracks, Lucky marks a new chapter in his career, although he did have some help from colleagues like Lil Durk, Smino, and Chiiild for the ride.
As with Painted, Candydrip continues Lucky Daye’s introduction of the sensory experience, except this time it’s taste that conquers sight. He explains that Candydrip is primarily focused on flavor. “As opposed to Painted, which was focused on colors. The songs on this album differ in their flavors, giving you ear candy in different contexts.” Prior to the release of the full album, fans had the opportunity to listen to singles such as “NWA” and “Over” with Lil Durk. Daye has released the official visual for the latter track today (April 20), with the video further playing on people’s instincts as a series of artistic scenes flash across each other, along with his lyrics:
Lucky Daye’s Candydrip follows up her debut album Painted. This album featured 13 tracks and was mostly produced by D’Mile, at least from what the track listing of her upcoming album indicates. An enhanced deluxe edition of this album was released following the release of the standard edition. This edition included six additional tracks and features by Chronixx, MediSun, Victoria Monét, and Babyface. Nonetheless, Daye did keep the momentum alive in February with Table For Two, a Valentine’s Day-inspired EP that featured collaborations with Queen Naija, YEBBA, Mahalia, Ari Lennox, Tiana Major9, and Joyce Wrice.
