“FALLING IN LOVE”
Fast rising R&B singer and songwriter, Joyce Wrice, has linked up with Lucky Daye for the upbeat new collab “Falling In Love” debuting today. The duet finds Wrice and Daye’s velvety vocals floating over a sea of synths and hi-hats to deliver an infectious R&B jam any romantic will love.

Speaking on the new collaboration, Joyce shares, “‘Falling in Love’ was actually a demo for Mary J. Blige that Lucky had written with another songwriter, Davion Farris. Mary and I have the same A&R, Eddie Fourcell, and she had decided to pass on the record. Eddie still had the demo and he asked me if I was interested in it.”
Wrice continues, “When I heard the production, D’Mile’s vocals in the beat and what Davion and Lucky were talking about, I had to keep it for myself! I could relate to the story and wanted a record with that type of bounce for my album. So immediately worked on a second verse and shared it with Lucky. He really liked what I did and tweaked certain parts after I sent it to him. Fortunately, now we’re both releasing it on our own projects this year and I’m just so grateful for the opportunity and hope everyone loves it just as much as I do!”
Gearing up for the release of her much anticipated debut album, Wrice delivered the LP’s fiery lead single “So So Sick” co-written by Wrice alongside Daniel Church and produced by 2021 GRAMMY Award-nominated D’Mile (H.E.R., Victoria Monet, Lucky Daye). “So So Sick” follows Wrice’s critically acclaimed single “That’s On You” in addition to her feature on Westside Gunn’s “French Toast” featuring Wale.
