Track of the Day: 'Lucky Day'

More

Past TracksNicola Roberts is a UK pop singer who rose to prominence as a member of Girls Aloud back in the mid-2000s. While that group is on hiatus, she is back with her first solo album, and this cut is delightfully chipper. She's essentially calling out a subpar lover, and demanding that things go her way, at least on this on this one lucky day. The propulsive production on this track is courtesy of Toronto's Dragonette, and I'd say Roberts has a broad-brushstroke pop tune here proving she doesn't to be part of a group to shine.
