As previously reported, former Dirty Money & Danity Kane captain Dawn Richard has earned fan favor with her Brandy-esque track ‘Save Me From U (SMFU)’. The dramatic, black-and-white clip is the first unveiled from the songstress’s forthcoming ‘GoldenHeart’. Despite first making rounds on the net over two months ago, last week’s trailer tease certainly amped anticipation for this Ev Salomon-directed clip, now available for viewing in its entirety.
Does the ‘GoldenHeart’ hitmaker strike gold? You decide after the jump:
Indeed, it’s a new Dawn. The clip sees the songstress, who’s spent most of her career sharing the spotlight with some other party (or parties), finally taking center stage. A perfect example of where less is more, the simplicity of the video certainly makes a strong point as it allows the song’s commanding lyrics to ultimately serve as its sell. In an age where ballads and mid to slow tempo numbers are not exactly the blockbusters on charts they used to be, it will be interesting to see how this fares. But, sell or not, this song and visual combo are just another shining example of the talent that is Dawn.
Here’s to more creative ventures like this from the budding diva.
