Lucky Daye has joined forces with Tiana Major9 for his latest single, “On Read.”
On the slow-burning ballad, the two singers croon about the relatable and anxiety-inducing moments after a text message has been opened, but left unanswered. Daye pleads with his lover, asking: “Baby, call me / We’ve been off, way off track / You don’t hit me back when I need you / Making me weak / What, you gon’ make me beg?”
Meanwhile, Tiana brushes off his advances with her sassy lines. “It’s your lucky day if I answer, oh / You ain’t gon’ find the sort of reply you’re wanting to get out of me, bae / How many times are you gonna try? / I’m waiting for you to leave it,” she sings.
Along with “On Read,” Daye has also shared the details of his forthcoming EP, Table for Two. The six-track offering is due out this Friday and will feature his new song with Tiana, along with collaborations with Ari Lennox, Queen Naija, YEBBA, Joyce Wrice and Mahalia. The project will follow his previous tracks with Kaytranada, SG Lewis and Buddy.
