Dawn Richard‘s hustle is finally paying off!
Yes, while a number of her ‘Danity Kane’ sisters have chosen to take a more ‘relaxed’ route to success, the last two years have seen Richard generate a loyal group of followers, by way of a steady flow of progressive R&B and music videos a few of her contemporaries could learn from.
Now, find out why she’s on course to becoming 2013′s leading R&B it girl, below…
In what will come as mind blowing news to all close to her, her new album ‘Goldenheart’ has debuted at #8 on iTunes UK’s R&B chart.
Now, while there’s been some effort in the past to downplay this chart’s worth, her arrival on the tally comes as an impressive feat considering her lack of physical promo in the nation and the chart’s highly competitive nature of late.
This, following releases by Rihanna, Miguel and Alicia Keys and the recent ascent of Destiny’s Child ‘#1′s’, all of which have continued to outsell more recent entries day on day.
Helped in part by a ‘Goldenheart’ banner placed on the digital outlet, the album’s promising UK run comes after it came in at #24 on iTunes USA, and follows the demise of ‘Diddy -Dirty Money’, in which she performed in alongside ‘Bad Boy’ boss Diddy.
