Lucky Daye Talks New Album ‘Algorithm’ & Gives His Definition of R&B

Lucky Daye sat down with Billboard News and executive director of R&B/hip-hop Gail Mitchell to talk about his latest album Algorithm. “My mind-set was I kinda wanted to talk to myself as if God was talking to me,” the New Orleans singer said when asked what his approach was for this project. “So, I was just using that to write letters to myself the whole album, trying to get to know myself.” Adding, “Who am I? What’s my algorithm? The things I don’t like, the things I do like.”

Lucky — who has written for the likes of Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige and Victoria Monét — also gave his definition of R&B. “I’m talking about what I’ve been through and I’m being vulnerable, it’s sounds like R&B in my mind.” He continued by adding, “I honestly think that R&B is everything… it’s the literal foundation of most music.”

Released on June 28, Algorithm is the third studio album from Lucky and his song “That’s You” produced by D’Mile and Bruno Mars is currently sitting at No. 2 on the Adult R&B Airplay Chart.

He’s set to hit the road with The Algorithm Tour featuring special guest Fana Hues. The first stop is in San Francisco on July 11 at The Warfield and the last stop is in LA on Aug. 28 at the Greek Theatre. He plays Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Aug. 7 and will play his hometown of New Orleans on Aug. 17 at The Filmore.
