Lucky Daye:
I’m not gonna play a losing game. I’m gonna play that I’m gonna win at. And I win at making music. Hey, this is Lucky Daye, and this is Billboard News. 

Gail Mitchell:
Welcome, Lucky Daye.

Lucky Daye: 
Thank you for having me.

Gail Mitchell:
So I was telling someone here earlier on the team, I was going out to a dinner last night, on the radio Stevie Wonder’s KJLH “That’s You” was playing. And I’m like, oh my god, because I’m supposed to talk to him tomorrow. On the way home, “Hurricane” was playing on the same station. So …

Lucky Daye: 
So Stevie like … 

Gail Mitchell:
Stevie likes you. 

Lucky Daye: 
Come on. I just invited Stevie Wonder to my show. Like, I told my MD he said he knew somebody that knew him. 

Gail Mitchell:
OK. 

Lucky Daye: 
So I told him, “When I’m in L.A., just know Stevie Wonder’s gonna be at my show.”

Gail Mitchell:
Great. And congratulations, because, at least this week, “That’s You” is up to No. 3 on R&B Airplay … 

Lucky Daye: 
Man, that’s good to know.

Gail Mitchell:
So congrats. 

Lucky Daye: 
It’s good to know, it’s good to see. 

Gail Mitchell: 
What was your creative mindset heading into working on Algorithm?

Lucky Daye:
My mindset was, I kind of wanted to talk to myself as if God was talking to me. I think the only voice I really hit when I’m not trying to make a voice, is God.
