Since the moment that Lucky Daye stepped onto the music scene with his debut single, “Roll Some Mo,” I’ve been a fan. His soulful and sultry voice is exactly what the R&B game has been missing and at just 36 years old, Lucky seems to have a bit of an old soul. From using part of his stage name (Daye) to pay homage to the late, great Marvin Gaye, to song collaborations with legendary artists Earth, Wind & Fire, and Babyface, Lucky Daye has shown that he has a deep appreciation for real music.
Lucky Daye isn’t new to being in spaces with music industry greats; Though he’s a relatively new artist, his name has been in the game for years. His pen game has landed him credits on songs by Keith Sweat, Ne-Yo, Boyz II Men, Keke Palmer, Ella Mai, Trey Songz, Mary J. Blige, and many more.
The New Orleans born-and-raised crooner recently joined Alicia Keys on “Come For Me (Unlocked),” a track off of her new, double album, Keys. The song also features “Location” singer Khalid and sits on the album’s “Unlocked” side. Keys consists of two parts: Originals, which Alicia describes as “the classic side of me,” and “Unlocked,” which is deemed “a whole other sonic experience.” Well, it’s no wonder Lucky Daye (and Khalid) made it to that side.
I can’t front: the song is definitely a vibe and the video matches its energy. The visual features scenes of Alicia, Lucky, and Khalid sipping wine and jamming in the studio, as well as behind-the-scenes footage of the trio at work and play.
Peep the video below!
“Come For Me (Unlocked)” is off of Alicia Keys‘ eighth studio album, Keys. The album also features Pusha T, Swae Lee, Lil Wayne, and singer Brandi Carlile. Keys dropped back in December and is available everywhere. ♥
