R&B Singer Fridayy Releases Self-Titled Album | WATCH New Video for Single “Stand By Me”!




August 25, 2023 – Today, undisputed “Melody God” and Grammy-nominated R&B phenomenon Fridayy proudly presents his highly anticipated self-titled full-length debut album, Fridayy, out now via Def Jam Recordings. Earlier today Fridayy also unveiled a heartfelt official music video to “Stand By Me.”

The 14-track opus featuring Maverick City Music, Adekunle Gold, Fireboy DML, Byron Messia, Chris Brown & Fridayy’s Mother traces a creative and personal journey for the rising superstar. It opens with the introspective piano-laden “Came Too Far” uplifted even higher by appearances courtesy of Maverick City Music and his Mom (who offers up a prayer straight from the heart). His booming baritone quivers with raw emotion on the admission, “I knew we would make it someday. I was fucked up couldn’t focus through them hard days. All the crazy shit I seen would make you lose your faith. I was 13 the first time I saw the cold face.”

On “Stand By Me,” Friday confesses “I know I ain’t perfect, but you know I’m still gonna try,” atop icy keys. He dips into Afrobeats on “You” alongside none other than Fireboy DML, while dancehall energy underscores “Mercy,” powered up by a showstopping Byron Messia-assist. The upbeat “Church on Sunday” shines with a warm steeple-size vocal turn, and the finale “I Won (Outro)” concludes with a moment of gratitude as he says, “If nothing else happens for me in life, I won, bro. I’m good. God is good enough,” in between ethereal electronic transmissions.

Referencing his album, Fridayy also shared “This album is the story of Fridayy, but it’s also the story of other people too. It’s a project for us, by me. I want people to connect to their experiences as they hear mine. I’m talking about hope and inspiration as much as I’m talking about trials and tribulations. You can’t talk about the dream without talking about the pain. Those life aspects are universal, so I’m hoping it touches as many people as possible as they see themselves in me.”

Fridayy set the stage for the album with standout ballad “When It Comes To You.” The track has already gathered over 6 million streams and counting. Of the song, American Songwriter proclaimed, “Everything about the singer’s appeal is put on full display and brought together in perfect harmony, literally and figuratively.” Rated R&B dubbed it “heartwarming,” and HotNewHipHop applauded, “This song is a showcase of the Philadelphia artist’s vocal talents and penchant for gorgeous harmonies.” He also gave a heart-thumping performance of the track for “Press Play” on GRAMMY.com.

Last year, Fridayy exploded onto the scene as the most sought after hook maestro and self-described “Melody God” in hip-hop and R&B, penning the chorus for DJ Khaled’s Grammy-nominated smash “God Did” (which he later performed to close out the Grammys), and Lil Baby’s “Forever,” which found Fridayy on SNL soon after releasing his debut EP. Recently named to XXL’s prestigious Freshmen class for 2023, Fridayy possesses an otherworldly and unmistakable baritone which absolutely soars over his deep stash of self-produced beats; sampling hip-hop, R&B, gospel, afrobeats and beyond. A self-taught musician, singer and producer – trained in his local church choir, having honed his craft in an ad-hoc basement studio in Philly – Fridayy’s approach is at one ethereal and deeply musical. Fridayy has struggled, and you can hear the urgency and pain of struggle and overcoming adversity throughout his work, both in his 2022 debut EP Lost In Melody and his brilliant, expansive forthcoming debut album.
