Snippets: Dawn Richard – ‘GoldenHeart’ Album

dawn goldenheart cover Snippets: Dawn Richard   GoldenHeart Album

Dawn Richard has been on quite the journey – one which has finally birthed her debut solo album ‘GoldenHeart’.

The former Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money diva has spent the last 18 months drumming up a buzz with edgy videos and ambitious creative concepts, all of which she’ll be hoping give a sales boost to the LP when it hits stores on January 15th via Altavoz Distribution.

With less than a week remaining before the project arrives, Richard has shared snippets of each track. Preview the set below…

      Don’t thumbs someone down if they don’t like it. Especially if they haven’t been rude about it

      I personally love this. I have her EP “Armour On”. She definitely has a sound that you’ll either love or hate. I think it’s dark and mysterious like some stuff by Esthero, Portishead, Sade, etc. If you’re only a fan of Billboard 100 type stuff then you probably won’t get it or like it and that’s cool. Some music isn’t meant to be radio friendly. Some of it is really artistic expression through sounds. Dawns voice rides the beat and the listening experience tells a story. Same way I feel when I listen to The Archandroid by Janelle Monae. I will be buying! Can’t wait to hear the full songs!

    Well Sam,

    You have no know the truth. NY post has just confirmed that Rita Whora is back to w**** ways. Rob said she slept with famous guys – one of those guys was Evan Ross. Evan Ross has a Longterm GF. Well, even her tour in at the end of this month – The tour that her management are trying to sell on twitter Instead of rehearsing, she was in NYC, hanging out at jay z club, taking pics of herself on rooftop AND…………publicly kissing up on EVAN ROSS at the gold bar in NYC.

    What kind of nonsense is this? And they say this w**** is gonna end rih’s career? HOW, buy f****** every dude she meets in clubs?

    Why is Beyonce endorsing this dirty eastern european girl? Pouring all this money into a lazy hypersexual cocky s***, who seems to party and f*** more than DROP AN LP IN AMERICA.

    beyonce self esteem must be at an all time low for her to act as suger mommy to this trick.

      Well, even if this sell 100 copies Dawn can sleep safe in the knowledge that she will see a good 90% of that bank. Ya fav sees a good 1%……long live the smart indie flop making that good buck off their blood sweat and tears.

      I agree. First of all……There is no radio song. Second – rically, I did not detect a sense of what she was tryna to say. Third – the production sounds the same, and I do not feel she worked with a producers who can do the eclectic lykke lykke, bjork, florence welch sound she was going for.

      Fourth – it is not organic and very contrived. Fifth – she sounds TOO much like Brandy.

      Sixth – aside from knowing how to sing, she just does not have enough talent in writing or artistry to set her apart from other chicks. If you are gonna be all left field, you need alot inner creative yolk to real pull it off.

    #Hearts #Heaux SHe cant Flop b/c she’s independent…so as long as she makes money, she’ll succeed…I have her mixtape A Tell tale Heart, her Armor On EP, & her Xmas Whiteout EP…Dawn Richard is the female Frank Ocean, but a bit more artistic, she has a “sound” & creative direction in her videos & the GoldenHeart Trilogy will be epic!!!

        If Rihanna is your ideal A list singer then I’ll gladly keep supporting the less f***** up listers making art and not playing “dream life” when she’s really living a lifeyou wouldn’t wish on their worst enemy.

    to whoever asked: jhenes music is organic, simple, soulful, thought-provoking and catchy. the average music listener will not appreciate dawns music regardless of their racial ethnicity. dawns music isn’t my cup of tea, but i wish her all of the best. she was my fave in dk.

    Frankly, these snippets are just as good as Chamnel Orange. Dawn is proving why music truly has the wrong priorities. This album is fantastic and indeed Grammy worthy.
