11 JANUARY 2023 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, multi-talented and genre-bending artist Chiiild releases his latest track “Good For Now” featuring GRAMMY Award-winning R&B powerhouse Lucky Daye via Avant Garden/4th & Broadway (Def Jam Recordings, Inc.)/Universal Music Canada. The track will appear on Chiiild’s forthcoming album Better Luck in the Next Life, due out March 3, 2023.
Stream “Good For Now” feat. Lucky Daye HERE.
This latest release sees Chiiild team up with GRAMMY-winning R&B star Lucky Daye, resulting in a mesmerizing ambient track with rich vocals and an otherworldly atmosphere. The two artists previously collaborated on “Compassion” on Daye’s 2022 GRAMMY-nominated album Candydrip.
About the track, Chiiild shares “Sometimes we get caught up in the feelings and start thinking about the future with the hope that the feeling lasts. This song is a reminder that whatever happens, we should be present in the moment because we don’t know what tomorrow brings.”
Chiiild first announced Better Luck in the Next Life with the release of his single “Bon Voyage.” The track offered a first glimpse into the album, which serves as an in-depth exploration of creative freedom, personal equilibrium, and a return home. Chiiild followed this up by releasing his next single “You Get Me (A Final Word),” which premiered on The Zane Lowe Show on Apple Music in December.

In early 2020, Chiiild released his debut EP Synthetic Soul.

At the heart of it, Better Luck Next Life matches passion with energy from an artist who isn’t afraid to take risks in his sound and evolve with every lyric and note.
ABOUT LUCKY DAYE
GRAMMY-Award winning R&B star Lucky Daye discovered his love of music and natural gift for singing and songwriting early in life in his hometown of New Orleans. Displaced by the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Lucky moved to Atlanta for a brief stint and eventually ventured to Los Angeles to pursue his music dreams. After meeting producer D’Mile and working with him on his debut album Painted, Lucky fully realized his voice and potential. His undeniable talent as a vocalist took shape and landed him at his label home, Keep Cool, in partnership with RCA Records.
Lucky Daye has received five nominations for the 65th annual GRAMMY Awards, performed his hit single “Over” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and released his sophomore album Candydrip. The album debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums Chart and #10 on the Billboard Current R&B Albums Chart, and upon release received critical acclaim from NPR, Complex, Rolling Stone, and Billboard, who hailed Daye’s latest effort as “immaculate, forward-thinking R&B.” In addition to Candydrip, Lucky has also released a number collaborations including “Star” with Megan Thee Stallion, “Too Much” with Mark Ronson, “A Mess” with Ella Mai, “CYBAH” with Syd, and more.
Prior to these accolades, Daye received a GRAMMY Award for Best Progressive R&B album for his 2021 EP Table for Two, received nominations for four GRAMMY’s in 2019, including Best R&B Album and Best R&B Song, and released his explosive hit “Roll Some Mo” in late 2018.
