Lucky Daye Shares New Single “Over” & Official Video Co-Starring Jordyn Woods


“…an R&B hybrid that is as traditional as it is uniquely his own.” – The New Yorker

“…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

“The most exciting new voice in the R&B revival…” – Noisey

[New York, NY – September 22, 2021] Lucky Daye returns with a powerful new song “Over,” featuring a familiar sample from Musiq Soulchild’s “Halfcrazy” released via Keep Cool/RCA Records. The single is the first offering since the Table For Two EP that arrived earlier this year and comes paired with a highly stylized visual directed by Machine Operated, co-starring Jordyn Woods as Lucky’s love interest. With his signature velvety vocals, Lucky Daye details a torrid love affair atop a luxurious, string-driven instrumental, describing it as “nightmares turn into a dream.” The video features Lucky dealing with the constraints of celebrity culture and a constant loop of pressure and loneliness until he realizes that he must first take care of his relationship with the object of his affection before he can launch himself into the wider world and change it.

Lucky released his latest EP Table For Two in February of 2021, which has garnered over 20+M streams on Spotify. Table for Two features the hit song “How Much Can A Heart Take” ft. YEBBA and the pair recently performed a heartfelt rendition on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
