The battle has begun, and Dawn Richard is here to fight! The singer has finally premiered her long awaited music video for her new single ‘86’. The short film was directed by Eugene Lee Yang and sees the singer playing a leader of the Hearts as she pays homage to her past (Danity Kane, childhood & more).
Solid cinematography and an engaging mortal kombat scene makes this worth your while!

After a turbulant adventure with successful girl group Danity Kane, and then going on to enjoying her days as a ‘Dirty Money’ chick, she has now become her own artist in every way possible. Goes to show that ambition and perseverance really does pay off in the end. She is also gearing up to release the video for the lead single, ’86′, and with the effort she puts into her visuals, we can expect it to be a stunning piece of artistic expression. Check out a preview of her new album below.
Our favourite hustler Dawn Richard releases a trailer for ‘86’, the first single off her upcoming debut album ‘Goldenheart’. The retrospective clip pays homage to her past and was directed by Eugene Lee Yang, the mastermind behind her ‘Wild N’ Faith’ visual. The video will premiere next month, and the album will drop on January 15th.
Dawn Richard pours her heart out on the Druski-produced ‘On A String’. The cut will appear on her upcoming Christmas EP, which is slated to drop early December. It also arrives one month ahead of her serially delayed studio album, ‘Goldenheart’, slated to hit the shops on January 15th.
An NYC release party at SOB’s, resulted in Dawn Richard performing a concert to promote her new material. The singer performed new songs from her forthcoming album ‘Goldenheart’, as well as cuts from her popular ‘Armor On’ EP. The 29-year-old hustler donned a simple yellow one-piece pants outfit, which nicely embraced her slim frame, and her hair was styled in a ridiculously long braided ponytail.
Dawn Richard‘s hustle is golden. The singer has pushed back her debut album ‘Goldenheart’ from October 16th to January 15th, 2013. The pushback ties in with her new distribution deal with Altavoz Distribution. A deal, which will see the project receiving wider exposure across the States.
Dawn Richard releases ’86′, the official lead single from her ‘GoldenHeart’ album, the first in a trilogy which is slated to drop on October 16th. Produced by Druski, the 29-year-old combined several sounds from the vaults of Prince, Genesis, Cyndi Lauper, Peter Gabriel, and Phil Collins. From that interesting cocktail, this is what the final outcome sounds like…
Dawn Richard is ready to unleash more of her creativity with debut album, ‘GoldenHeart’. Today, she unveils the project’s official artwork and accompanying tracklist. The album’s first single ’86′ is slated to debut on September 26th and the album is slated to drop in stores on October 16th. The cover is nice but it’s reminding me too much of the promo shoot Ashanti did last year.
Dawn Richard premieres her warrior-themed music video for her ‘Armor On’ single ‘Faith’ and bonus track ‘Wild N’ Young’ today. The short film, directed by Eugene Lee Yang, incorporates inspiration from a Joan of Arc angle, and sees the 29-year-old playing a goddess of faith to her three warriors.
As seen in the clip, Dawn sticks closely to her tribal/warrior concepts which have been a continuity throughout the entire ‘Armor On’ series. She continues to use her artistry stunningly well to get her message and story across.
