Donnie recently premiered his new music video for the second single released from The Daily News album on BET J. In "911," Donnie calls attention to the issues of racism, sexism, and homophobia.
In 2002, Donnie emerged on the scene nationally to critical acclaim with his debut album The Colored Section which was released on Giant Step/Motown Records. His latest offering, The Daily News is the culmination of a thoroughly reappraised Donnie. Donnie’s "ripped from the headlines" approach to songwriting on The Daily News sees him using poignant lyrics to tackle a diverse range of society’s woes – unemployment, racism, sexism, homophobia, suicide and child molestation – being just a few of the subjects. In less capable hands these topics could become overly dark and brooding, but on The Daily News Donnie finds himself at his funkiest. Full of righteous indignation without being preachy, he brings us with him, all the while allowing his truth to shine through.
Oh–and he’s out too!
