Must See: Dawn Richard Shoots ‘Automatic’ Video

Published: Wednesday 23rd May 2012 by Sam

After serving up the ball of fierceness that was the ‘Bombs’ video, Dawn Richard looks poised to have tongues a-wagging once again with the clip for her latest single ‘Automatic’. Case, point, these newly released stills from the song’s accompanying video.

The cut is the latest to be lifted from the former Danity Kane member’s ‘Armor On’ EP – which was released in March to critical acclaim.

Peep more pics below…

Fierce.

    COVERSELF IN BODY PAINT?

    DIDN’T RIHANNA DO THAT IN “UMBRELLA” ?

    • millhouse May 23, 2012

      Clearly you need to do your homework. That is not Rihanna… THat is “LL Cool J – Doin It”

      • mobwife May 23, 2012

        Yes, I was going to mention LL! There are quite a few others who have covered their body in paint…. David Bowie is one. The others escape me at the moment but it has been done many times before AND I SEE NOTHING WRONG WITH IT! Back in the day they only had white, gold, yelloe, black & blue body paint. Now you can get just about every color in the rainbow. I LOVE BODY ART & THINK IT’S TOO COOL!

        Reminds me of Missy Elliot video. She covered herself and her dances in black paint. Nothing is ever really original.

    • AMAZINJALEN May 23, 2012

      • Chile Please!! May 24, 2012

        No Ms. Thang her album did not drop yet….it was an “EP” girl….go back to school!

    Video is going to be hot. Dawn always brings it. Let’s not bring up Rhianna Dawn can really dance and Rhianna cannot. They are 2 different artist. Dawn is for people who like talent and Rhianna is a for people who like pop sensations. I am pretty sure there is room to like both artist.

    Why bring Rihanna up to battle she can’t even begin to fight?!?!
    She could never do what this “Beast” is doing now, and what she will do in the future..
    Besides the one little detail, which Rihanna was definitely not the first to do, I bet This video will be all types of hot, which will burn any Rihanna video… Live performance..

    When is the premiere date? I’m looking forward to seeing what she has to serve up. 🙂

  6. TEAM ASHANTI May 23, 2012

    HOW DID ASHANTI NAME COME IN THIS CONVO OR RIHANNA FOR THAT MATTER…let dawn just do Dawn I know she would appreciate…she trying to build her own light not be compared to anyone else.

  7. ANTHONY May 23, 2012

    @Azarion Love

    Are we talking about the same Rihanna and Dawn Richard

    Cause I’m sure no one knows who this girl is since Danity Kane has faded into oblivion. *Sips Tea* #OOP

    ANYWAYS TUNE IN FOR RIHANNA’S PERFORMANCE TONIGHT ON AMERICAN IDOL……A POP STAR THAT EVERY KNOWS.

    • riri can’t sing 4 s*** May 23, 2012

      a pop star can’t sing tho

      • KURTISSALT May 24, 2012

        Yip…watched it an……boooorrrreeeee….Couldn’t sing her own song coz she had to dance!Kept missing lines, esp the high notes to do her below average dance break.Breathing is the foundation of singing and Rihanna doesn’t have enough vocal control to do both sing and dance…..YES everyone knows her does that mean she has talent…..A NAH!Everyone knows Paris so I guess that makes her an amazing singer…..#SITDOWN!

    Funny how Aubrey had a song called Automatic aswell…

    Anyways DK needs to just get back together cause none of them are gonna make it solo…

    They’re headed down the same path as “DREAM”… who remembers them?

  16. Saxon_Minaj May 23, 2012

    yAASSS THAT IS GREAT SONG

  17. POPEATER May 23, 2012

    WOW. DO PEOPLE JUST AUTOMATICALLY LIKE BEING NEGATIVE! THE VIDEO IS NOT EVEN OUT YET AND PEOPLE ARE ALREADY BASHING IT.

    THIS IS ONE OF DAWN’S BEST TRACKS ON THE EP. LOOKING FORWARD TO THE VIDEO. KEEP DOING YOUR THING DAWN!

  18. jarel May 23, 2012

    ^preach ……U are speaking the truth!! I am loving the artistic vision Dawn is doing. Keep doing you girl the general public will catch on in due time.

  19. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare May 23, 2012

    Just finished listening to “Amor On” in its entirety for the first time today. Wow–STUNNING piece of work.

    THIS EP should be getting way more attention.

    In terms of the “Automatic” video, YASSS! After “Bombs,” I’m putty in her hands.

  20. Speaks Truth May 23, 2012

    She is swagger jacking Kelis soooo much. Bombs was a rip off of Acapella & this is too.

  21. Speaks truth May 23, 2012

    Can grapejuice please stop letting people post comments as me smh

  22. JP May 23, 2012

    My favorite solo Dawn track. I’m so excited for this. Cranks hard…especially after a few drinks on a club night.

  23. Marcus May 23, 2012

    F****** LOVE this song! Can’t wait for the video.

  24. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare May 24, 2012

    Okay, STILL on Dawn’s “Armor On.” LOL!

    Would it not be dope if she and Brandy did a duet?! & not a slow duet either. One along the lines of “Black Lipstick,” “Automatic,” or “Change.”

    i LOVE this album!

  25. Sean May 24, 2012

    Have all of you forgotten that Aubrey O’Day released a single called Automatic a while ago…

  26. Marcus May 31, 2012

    Her album is sick

  27. NELL June 10, 2012

    Dawn is doing the damn thing and it is sad that everyone is so closed minded and can’t understand her direction, talent and artistry but I guess the beauty of the story will be that when she blows (which won’t be long at the rate she is going and doing it independently) those who are in the dark will soon be brought to the light. I love her talent it is so raw and passionate but still has flares of a vet in the game (considering she has been doing this for about 6 years thats not unexpected) She is creating a new wave, a new approach to sound, which is soon to be followed and appreciated. This is pure talent at its finest. I can go on and on for days but in all I respect this woman for the hell the system of industry put you through and the way you transformed it into motivation and drive and I love the results just as much as I feel in love with your talent when I first seen you on MTB
