Dawn Richard Says She’s Open To Danity Kane Reunion

Published: Thursday 30th Nov 2017 by Sam

Danity Kane fans have had to endure not one but two dis-bandings – the latter of which was all sorts of acrimonious.

Indeed, it the the trio incarnation of the group implode and police called when Dawn Richard punched Aubrey O’Day in the back of her head. All the day before members were set to shoot the video for ‘Lemonade’ and months before (what ended up being) their last album ‘DK3’ arrived.

In the time since, Richard has resumed her solo hustle, while O’Day and Shannon Bex pressed ahead as whimsical Pop duo dumblonde. Neither side has spoken overtly of the other, sans a few shady comments in interviews.

Still, could time be the ultimate healer that brings about another DK reunion?

Potentially.

See what we mean below…

It all started when Dawn posted a throwback clip of herself performing during the group’s 2014 run:

sis wasn’t playin.

A post shared by DAWN (@dawnrichard) on

We saw this and immediately thought “hmm,” given that all involved have largely avoided anything Danity Kane related in the years since.

Fans too picked up on it and commented as such. Dawn’s response seemed optimistic:

 

“It’s never nah”?

That’s very different to the “hell nah” teas all the ladies were giving in the immediate aftermath of the 2014 split. Which, in context, is understandable.

Here at TGJ we’ve always drilled our belief that the group played themselves by squandering their last run. They’ve always been a “supergroup” and, even as an indie operation last go round, were really making movements and magic (‘Lemonade’ is lowkey iconic and the album that followed was solid). So we’ve always viewed it as their collective fault for letting pettiness bring their comeback train to an abrupt halt.

As for another run, we’re here for it. Perhaps more as a farewell tour than anything else. Closing the chapter on a high rather than the tabloid low that currently defines their end. It also needn’t be the “end-end’ either. Touring is where many current and legacy acts continue to thrive and we feel there’ll always be an audience for DK.

That’s not to overlook the obvious hurdles attached to convincing folk to invest in something thing that seems so prone to break. But, at the same time, there’s too much talent in the DK fold for it not to be an attractive prospect.

Make it happen, ladies.

  2. U’nique November 30, 2017

    DAWN YOU ARE THE REAL DEAL.THE S***

  3. Drinkmybussyjuice November 30, 2017

    This cant be serious. I love DK. Watched thier entire journey but they just are not meant ti be together. I wish though.

  4. Juan1n4m1ll10n November 30, 2017

    It’s a NO for me. We was all rooting for them, such a disappointment. I’m cool with like a farewell little gig, maybe like 3 shows but with the original 5.
    Doesn’t look like that’s going to happen tho. Some things need to be left alone, and it’s such a shame because if they never disbanded in the beginning I’m sure they would’ve been runnin $#!T over these past 10 years

    dawn’s music is really good and underrated

  6. 2bad2bme November 30, 2017

    We waited all that time for them to release the last album and they just threw it out to get it over with. So now we have to wait another whole 2 years for them to record, tour and release their album. I won’t be wasting my time again. Hands are washed!

    • jay November 30, 2017

      lol u know you would low-key buy the album nd a tticket

      • Caleb December 2, 2017

        Doubt it.

  7. SMH November 30, 2017

    Nah. They missed their opportunity to be the next supergroup. Dawn is much better as a solo artist anyway.

  8. Rated R November 30, 2017

    Like Diddy said , Danity Kane is a Group of 5 Girls . I need all 5 , with no shade involved . I liked DK3&4 however one was always missing sad but true. They can really cause some damage and really promote unity do a docuseries like xscape and see where it goes

    • Moti December 4, 2017

      I don’t have to have all five just as long as Drea and Dawn are part of it I’m in

  9. Achooo! November 30, 2017

    I love the lemonade album. They could have been big as a trio but egos got in the way. I would love for the trio to collaborate again

    • DanYiel Iman November 30, 2017

      I also loved “Lemonade” especially while jogging 🏃🏽!!

  10. Meme November 30, 2017

    IF WE CAN GET MONA TO HANDLE THEIR REUNION THE SAME WAY AS XSCAPE THEN YES CUZ XSCAPE IS WINNING THE COMEBACK GAME BIG TIME OUT OF ALL THE GROUPS TO DO IT. IF ALL SAINTS CAN BREAK UP TWICE AND REUNITE TWICE THEN SO CAN DK. HERE FOR IT. FOR ALL 5.

    • ??? November 30, 2017

      lmao um no.

      • IKNOWTHETRUTH November 30, 2017

        WHICH IS WHAT YOUR MOTHER SAID WHEN YOU HATCHED

    • Electrikblue December 1, 2017

      Yeeesss Truth read that dumb ???

  12. iamdiego November 30, 2017

    WHY NOT… DAWN SHOULD REACH OUT BUT ATLEAST BRING BACK DWOODS AND DREA TOO… OR JUST TRY IT WITH THEM THIS TIME INSTEAD.

  13. K November 30, 2017

    They should give it another shot, but like some of you said with all 5 otherwise it’s pointless. Maybe D Woods could be the peacemaker and make this work.

  14. GrapeJuice Fan November 30, 2017

    I’m dead ….. I miss them a lot though !

  15. DanYiel Iman November 30, 2017

    I actually loved the sound Danity Kane produced & I have every album including Dawns album’s, didn’t like “Dumb Blondes” album…🤦🏽‍♂️

  16. thanosoftitans November 30, 2017

    Yes, I would love for the girls to get back together and release new music! And I mean all of the girls, all 5! Praying and hoping they resolve their issues and get back to the music. <3 Danity Kane.

  17. Francis November 30, 2017

    Their last album was a good and cohesive record, but they lost their opportunity. I was really rooting for them.

  18. NOBITCHASSNESS November 30, 2017

    I still play all their albums and DK3 so yeah why not? I need an explanation of what really went down lol

  19. Anthony November 30, 2017

    D Woods is not need tbh. However Andrea is. If all 4 I’d be here for it. There music still bops.

    • AmbeRussell December 1, 2017

      I’d take dwoods over Shannon any day though

  20. juni November 30, 2017

    Dawn is so Wack! now she wants to go back! girl sit your boring music down alone with you 10 fans! i WAS a fan but your corny

  21. Maurice November 30, 2017

    I love it and I love Dk you girls rock

  22. @javon_makhi25 December 1, 2017

    They are THE BEST FEMALE GROUP OF ALL TIME!! Of course next to all of the others before them. Inculding DC and TLC. I know all 5 can come together if they just sit down and have a talk and remember that they may have been put together through a show and overcome all the hardship and competition together in front of MILLIONS! That they are always SISTERS and FAMILY at the end of the day and we ALL WANT MORE. You all are so GREAT!! @DAWNRICHARD @D.WOODS @AUNDREAFIMBRES @SHANNONBEX @AUBREYO’DAY

    • Caleb December 2, 2017

      Those chicks couldn’t hold a candle to TLC and Destiny’s Child. Get real.
