MICK BOOGIE PRESENTS SADE-THEMED CONCEPT ALBUM BY DETROIT MC MAE DAY AND PRODUCED BY DE NOTES, AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD NOW

DJ Mick Boogie, legendary femcee MC Lyte, and MC Serch (known for his membership of pioneering rap group 3rd Bass) all have different ways of describing Mae Day, but their sentiments of praise are all the same.

“I want to let the world know about Mae Day,” MC Lyte said, before freestyling with her on the air and later recording a song with her. “She’s coming, and I’m proud to know it and proud to say it.”

“Mae is dope, refreshing, unique, original, and has an integrity about her that most emcees lack nowadays,” Mick Boogie echoed. “I’m happy to be a part of her project.”

That project is Cherish The Day, due for a release as a free download through www.maedaymaeday.com and Mick Boogie’s www.thepressplayshow.com

today, Tuesday, Feb. 3. On it, Mae Day and De Notes—the production team headed by Dewitt Moore, formerly of The SickNotes (Obie Trice’s “Cry Now,” D12’s “How Come’)—put their spin on records from soul songstress Sade to create classics of their own. Mae Day uses substantial lyrics and a tight delivery to simultaneously narrate a story and convey the emotions that come with it, and she’s sexy without the brashness that many of her peers rely on—much like the singer who inspired the project itself. The first leak, “Hold On,” sees her and De Notes flipping Sade’s “Nothing Can Come Between Us” into an upbeat, confident assertion of her impending success. A week after its release—Tuesday, Feb. 10—www.imeem.com will present an exclusive playlist that features Mae Day giving listeners an inside look behind each song.

MC Serch insisted that when he listened to Cherish The Day, that he had goosebumps—the same goosebumps he felt when executive producing seminal albums like Nas’ Illmatic and O.C.’s Word…Life. “I hope that the rest of the audience is not so lost in the sea of mediocre music that this wave of talent gets lost,” Serch said. “This is a voice women can ride for, and dudes can vibe to. … She’s the female Jay-Z.”
