dawn richard wild n faith video thatgrapejuice New Video: Dawn Richard   Wild N Faith

Danity Kane diva Dawn Richard continues her creative winning streak with the video for new single, ‘Wild N’ Faith’.

Lifted from the singer’s critically acclaimed ‘Armor On’ EP, the song’s accompanying visual was helmed by Marina & The Diamonds director ELY.

What are you waiting for? Watch Ms. Richard battle for career success below…

Yet another stellar effort from this talented creative-hub.

Indeed, it’s both warming and disheartening to note that Dawn’s visual efforts (as an independent artist) are markedly more engaging than most of the videos churned out by acts signed to major labels.

Here’s hoping her “out of the box” approach not only makes a “major” sit up and pay attention to her cause, but also inspire some of her major label counterparts to “do better”.

    IMO, its the video of the year period!! Amazing Dawn is a beast. She definitely has her own lane. Amazing how this is not on the radio? Love the songs and the concept

    Her career will be lukewarm forever, because she’s a talented songwriter, dancer, and creator, but she doesn’t have the team to give her a streamlined, consistent, look and feel. Lessors will keep on winning because of this fact alone. You can’t drive in someone else’s lane. You have to create your own.

        By doing R&B and Dance? I don’t think so. Her look and profile outside of her music just isn’t going to do it. I want her to win, but I don’t think she will in this market.

      I agree…I’ve been wanting her to stand on her feet for so long… No doubt this vid and song is great but , she just hasn’t found that lane that would make her stand out as a solo artiste … I really hope she finds that avenue soon., she’s been at for quite some time now .

    These songs have a lot of South African Kwaito/House influence which I like. She obviously has a South African producer, this is what urban acts should be going for if they are to have a modern urban sound.

    For sure, its one of the best videos I’ve seen in a long time. Of course there were things that looked a little weird like the big gold helmet that was lop sided. It would have looked nicer if it actually sat on her head properly… but I quickly got over those minor things and focused on the big picture.

    Over all the video is AMAZING!!!.I wish there was little bit more focus on the choreo cuz it looked Great!. I love the the different looks. I love the concept. I love the songs. I wasnt sure where she was going with it in the beginning but by the end of the video, I was definitely satisfied.

    Dawn is on the right track to becoming a big star. She is stepping her game up & putting in the work to stay relevant. Just imagine what she could do if she had a bigger budget for her videos. This by far is the best video she has put out… Hopefully there will be more to come.

The girl is a sponge which has absorbed so much over the years who has worked so hard and is still working her ass of, so she deliveres not the typical. She takes risks i love that she doesnt go for the basic 1..2..3 i love its DAWN

        I can’t believe what I just read damn it – its 2012. There should be no colour restrictions in the music industry and if there is that’s because we buy into it. Music should be inclusive to everybody regardless of their shade. And if I am honest the blacks are the ones who have an issue with this . Dear god after all the battles Martin Luther King and Malcolm X fought to ensure equal rights for blacks they still cannot free themselves from mental slavery. We were once a proud race back in the 60s and making strides now we are regressing as a race. I blame rap music for this mentality. Its a case of “If you are White you are alright” “If you are brown stick around” and if you are black stand back”. Mr King and Mr X must be turning in his graves.

      Among other things! It’s a bit more involved than just Dawn haiving darker skin. It’s the organized structure that promotes some acts (360 degree contract holders mainly) and excludes others! It’s hard for Indie acts to make it especially African American R&B-Indie acts! IMO….

      Dawn has NOT “gone down the techno road.” Her music will NEVER be as generic as that!

      It’s actually what @Beyonce’s Weave described above. The second movement on “Faith” is the closest thing that could be described as “techno” to be found on the GREAT “Armor On.”

    Dawn has always been creative. The name Danity Kane was her creation from a comic book character she created and now has a comic book out about the entire story. I love Dawn. Her music is fire. Her concepts are very unique and original, but something about her entire package is missing. IDK what it is, but she is defintely one of the best artists out right now. Not the BEST because if you’ve ever heard of 2NE1, they definitely slay Dawn to the tenth power. Overall, I’m rooting for you Dawn.

    I saw a recent comment that said “If only she was light skinned, let’s keep it real”

    As much as I hate to say it, and I am the most pro African American person I know the truth is, only if she was light skinned. You need to ask yourself why are the most visible r&b female artist on the charts predominately light skinned. Beyonce, Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Keshia Cole, Nicki Minaj, and that’s about it for who is actually getting any media as of now. Furthermore some of these artist “light skinned” don’t have any real talent but they look good on the cover of a magazine. It’s called white washing. The artists like Dawn, Brandy, Fantasia, and many more who have more talent in their sweat than some of these people are not getting any media attention because they are not the type that the media puts on covers and promote………. The truth is tough to hear sometimes.
