‘Armor On’: Dawn Richard Scores ‘Best Album Of The Year’ Nod

Published: Monday 26th Nov 2012 by David

Dawn Richard– whether her detractors will admit it or not- stands as one R&B’s strongest forces.

Indeed, while the demise of ‘Diddy Dirty Moneycould have seen her fade into obscurity, her continued efforts to push her brand of Dance infused R&B is finally paying off critically.

Find out how below…

In celebration of her 2012 EP ‘Armor On‘, British publication ‘The Guardian’ have named the release one of their ‘Best Albums Of 2012‘, handing it a spot at #24.

On the release, they shared:

“Few artists have integrated R&B and dance as dazzlingly as Richard and producer Druski do here, from the intertwining snares and strings of Heaven to Faith’s climactic filterdisco explosion and the tactile flair of percussive details in every song. Along with fellow ex-Dirty Money singer-songwriter Kalenna, Richard is setting the pace in R&B.”

Congratulations!

    Good for Dawn! It’s nice to see her becoming successful as a business woman and an artist while also proving that you can still have a career after horrible mismanagement with former labels.

    She’s creative visually, but I don’t like a lot of her music. She also needs to stop emulating Brandys vocal style. She does a horrible job at it!

    • HEARTS HEAUX!!!!!!!!! November 26, 2012

      QUESTION: CRACKER WHEN DID ANYONE ASK YOU FOR A TOP 10 LIST? UMMMMMMMMM DO YOU THINK WE CARE HONKEY? O_o THOSE PEOPLE ARENT BEING ACKNOWLEDGED IN THIS POST “DAWN RICHARD” IS SO SHUT THAT S*** UP. PLEASE & THANK YOU – MANAGEMENT

      • FuzzyFrisson January 15, 2013

        Interestingly racist rant you’ve got going on – and I bet if a white person came along and labelled you ‘n****r’, ‘blackie’ and all other racist names like you’ve done equivalently to the original commenter of this particular thread portion [‘cracker’, ‘honkey’], you’d be the first to pull the race card. Or do you think you’re ‘more privileged’ because you happen to be Black? Racism and racial slurs are disgusting whichever way that wind blows and I’m thoroughly surprised this blog allowed your comment to be posted.

        You’re despicable.

  13. Ernest November 26, 2012

    who is she up against?

    • Peter G November 26, 2012

      Your mum, no I’m joking.
