Today marks the first release off the upcoming Donnisproject, Southern Lights. More to come about the project in the coming weeks.
Donnis, who signed to Atlantic Records, will be releasing his debut album later this year. In the meantime, Southern Lights will serve as a prelude to his major label debut in an effort to keep music coming for his fans.
“Blackberry Molasses” samples Mista’s southern-soul anthem of the same name. Initially, producer Crada came up with the idea and beat. When Organized Noize, the original producers of the record and the genius behind some of our favorite Outkast and Dungeon Family records, hit the studio with Donnis and heard it, they jumped right in, co-producing the song and making sure it lived up to the original version.
