It’s been six years since the release of her debut 2010 album Dondria vs. Phatfffat, now Dondria Nicole is back with not one, but TWO new singles, “Luh Ya” and “2 Good.” The two singles are a message to women to develop self-love after a less-than-fulfilling relationship.
“‘Luh Ya’ is coming from a place of fulfillment,” expressed the princess of So So Def. With years of proving herself, Nicole has not given up on love and how she wants to be treated.
“When we’re in new relationships, we’re excited about all the little things bae does to show us love and affection,” she says. “And those things make us love them even more. As the puppy love starts to fade, we begin to see their true colors and they ain’t always pretty.”
“‘Too Good’ speaks on the realization that bae ain’t it and you’re just too good for him! I wanna gear this record towards my ladies and promote women’s empowerment and self-worth. If they don’t treat you like a queen, tell em, “I luh ya, but I’m just too damn good,” Dondria explains.
Both singles were produced by The Pen House and are lifted from her forthcoming EP, The Day of the Don. About the new project, Dondria says, “My first album was definitely an expression of young love and how sweet and wonderful it is. ‘The Day of the Don’ gives more depth on the dynamics of a mature love. Pulling from my own beautiful and horrible experiences, I have a lot more to say and get off my chest this go around. And it’s only the beginning as ‘The Day of the Don’ also poses as a metaphor for the preparation for my sophomore album.”
