For the first time, Lucky Daye is on the Recording Industry Association of Americaâ€™s honor list. â€œRoll Some Mo,â€ the breakout lead single from his Grammy-nominated debut album Painted, has been certified gold. This shining certification level was reached for the Dâ€™Mile-produced song surpassing more than 500,000 in equivalent digital units.
The ganja-blowing serenade first appeared on Dayeâ€™s 2018 EP I. It arrived with a stoner-inspired visual. With aid from Ella Maiâ€™s The Debut Tour and one-off bonus performances, the song garnered R&B radio airplay, making it his first top 10 on the format in March 2019.
Combining all other well-deserved praise and recognition for Daye and â€œRoll Some Mo,â€ including a 2020 Best R&B Performance nomination, the song has earned 42.4 million streams and counting on Spotify.
Rated R&B just caught up with recent Oscar winner Dâ€™Mile, who was instrumental in the production of Dayeâ€™s solo introduction. Dâ€™Mile discussed how each of them was at the end of their ropes regarding pursuing music and how they discovered a creative freedom within each other. Read the full interview here.
