Dawn Richard Addresses Status Of Danity Kane Album

Published: Friday 15th Aug 2014 by Sam

One week has passed since Danity Kane dramatically broke up for the second time.

And though it appears the ladies are done for good following a violent studio assault, their ever-loyal fans have been holding out for news on their completed third album.

The set, which spawned Summer sizzler ‘Lemonade’, was due for release later this year and many had hoped it’d still be released as a “Thank You” of sorts to their supporters.

Silence has generally greeted such requests, however today saw member Dawn Richard offer an answer.

See what she had to say below…


Tragic. Like, this is literally a Pop tragedy. So close, yet so far.

The optimists in us had hoped that by some miraculous occurrence the album would still be able to be released. Yet, Dawn’s statement quickly brought about the reminder that that’s just not how the industry works. Labels, producers, writers and the likes have to recoup on the time and money spent. As such, it’s likely that the masses will indeed hear the material on the abandoned DK3 album….jus via other artists, who’ll likely be sold the songs. Again, tragic.

This, folk, is the reality of Danity Kane.

    Well I’m glad one of them finally spoke about it, however I’m still really upset that they allowed this to have become such a public spectacle and now we aren’t getting the music.

    • BittaSweet August 15, 2014

      “THEY” didn’t make this public. Shannon & Aubrey did. Dawn def isn’t innocent in this matter but as far as the fans not getting what we were promised? That’s not Dawn’s fault in this. And I’m sick of people blaming we for this ENTIRE situation solely bc she got physical. And to leak the story after it happened on we birthday was really telling. If they cared about the fans, they would’ve kept this private until the project was over. That way the producers, label, management, team members, family members and supporters weren’t affected. Period.

      • AmbeRussell August 15, 2014

        But Shannon and Aubrey did not leak the story, they didnt tell tmz… They only went public a week after to clarify what happened not to leak the story. At the end of the day, these are 3 grown women who should be mature enough to handle situations where fists aren’t thrown.

    • A August 15, 2014

      Even though what she did was dead wrong, Aubrey saw her chance to get her back. The first breakup was all Aubreys ‘fault’. so maybe she wanted revenge and sold TMZ the story so she can look like the good girl this time.

    Don’t even know what to say now! It just sucks!

  3. lj August 15, 2014

    Egotistical response. Very few fans will probably follow her or respect her now.

    • Anonymous August 15, 2014

      Not true. Once a heart, always a heart!

  4. Real Talk August 15, 2014

    Well maybe if Dawn, didn’t go round publicly punching her band members in the back of the neck then, people from the studio would not have leaked the info to TMZ and it would not have gone public, Dawn is pissed cos the info went public but i don’t get why she is mad at the other girls for that, they clearly didn’t leak the info cos the girls were pissed that it was called “a fight’ when it was one person attacking another!

    As far as apoligies being made she had a whole week to apoligise and instead she went sky diving and posted a video of her sticking 2 fingers up at everyone whilst in the air, and as soon as the story broke she deleted DK and the girls from her page within hours, changed her pick and didn’t even find out who leaked the story before doing so and totally seemed to forget that she physically harmed another women!!! I’m sorry but this is her fault people have lost out because of her being impossible and impulsive!

  5. Trill August 15, 2014

    Hkw can she act all saddened by the “incident” being made public?? Had she kept her hands to herself we wouldnt have this problem. If someone hits you, you have a right to tell who ever you want. Fault lies in everyone! !

  6. Molly August 15, 2014

    The group is a joke this situation is so funny because i knew the groups comeback would be a major fail.

  7. Molly August 15, 2014

    Dawns solo music is better than DKs trash

    • LB August 15, 2014

      I agree 100%, her solo projects are 100x better than the generic rubbish from DK.

      DK is a major downgrade for Dawn.

    • TheOuyoB August 15, 2014

      That’s definitely false. Her solo material is no way better than DK material. If that was the case, more people would have time for it… and they don’t. She has some nice material, but as a whole, it’s not that great. However, her vocals are definitely that great. Always have been..

  8. maledragabitch August 15, 2014

    Somewhere Diddy is laughing now i really see why he disbanded this group these h*** just cant stand each other came together once again after all them had failed solo careers and look what happened after this there dead no one will work with them or take them serious there names are to dirty

  9. LOTUS August 15, 2014

    What a shame. Not only did they waste their fans time, they wasted the producers, writers, and everyone who involved themselves with their ‘comback. I do blame Dawn because its immature to resort to violence, especially punching someone in the BACK of the head. She has to live with that, but at the same time Aubrey and Shannon should have handled everything privately we could have gotten the album. They clearly did not think this through. Oh well.

  11. Dustin August 15, 2014

    Dawn was saying that they don’t own the recordings. The stereotypes cannot sell the songs as the girls wrote them. They all have their publishing in order and as cowriters they would have to sign off on the sale of a song.

  12. LB August 15, 2014

    Listen to Goldenheart and you’ll agree DK was a STEP DOWN for Dawn, a major downgrade.

    Hopefully Dawn now concentrates on what matters, Black Heart. I need to get my hands on that album, I’m sure it’ll be even more amazing than GH.

    • Just Here For The Music August 15, 2014

      Totally agreed LB! I was pissed when she put her solo career on hold for this mess. She had just started garnering attention with GH. Maybe if they wouldn’t have taken 5000 years to release a follow up single we could have maybe gotten ‘All In a Days Work’ or ‘Rhythm of Love.’ Oh well. *hits play on Northern Lights*

  13. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) August 15, 2014

    Why are they still trying?

  14. Mimi Carey August 15, 2014

    This is no tragedy. No one was checking for them aside from a few blog f***.

    • A August 15, 2014

      Owh thats why they were on every news outlet last week. Trending on twitter and facebook for hours. Did you just call yourself a blog f***, cause you be checking for them and taking the time to comment. #ripDK

  15. #TeamTinashe Stan (“AQUARIUS” 10.7.14) August 15, 2014

    Were they big or something? The only girl groups I remember from the 2000’s was DREAM and 3LW. Dawn (although I don’t like that fact she knifed up her face) has the most potential in the group. Anyways, I don’t where I was but I never heard of a Danity Kane song on the radio only their “Making The Band” show with Diddy.

    Ps, I miss the 1999 – 2002 R&B-Hip Hop/Pop sound back in the day. It had like a spanish instrumental influenced infused with R&B/Pop.

    • maledragabitch August 15, 2014

      Is Tinashe still dropping Cassie left overs and doing dance moves we left in 2006

      What are u saying? You don’t know them, but you know them? I don’t even know if you own a radio, cause Showstopper & Damaged were played nonstop. #Hatersgonnahate

      • #TeamTinashe Stan (“AQUARIUS” 10.7.14) August 15, 2014

        I am serious I had never heard those songs in my “LIVING” life ever!

  16. musicMatters101 August 15, 2014

    Dawn makes no sense as the answer she gave in regards to why it won’t be released now.

    Obviously yes, if they had a label or endorsements, people would no longer want to put money into them or promoting them. That makes sense. But she did NOT address that.

    If there is a complete album (music, tracks wise), then if they choose to simply upload the album on iTunes it will certainly make up for the costs uploading it will be.

    Dawn made it seem like the album can’t be released because there is zero interest in people who would PAY for the album regardless. Tho yes it is not smart to say to the artist leak the album, because they likely have little ownership in the songs. That is music Business 101 #SUCO

  17. SMH August 15, 2014

    Fukk that trash s*** Aubrey. She’ll be doing p*** soon. I used to like Shannon but fukk her too. I don’t like the fact that they put it out there like they were helpless victims and Dawn was the devil. Dawn didn’t just wake up that morning and decide to go to the studio and punch that tramp in the head. This was something that was obviously building up for some time and those sneaky biitches did something that was the last straw in Dawn’s eyes. She’s not innocent, but she’s not the only one at fault in all this, either.

    • Team August 15, 2014

      You’re right as far as I’m concern Dawn should not bother with those two girls. I’m side eying Shannon like I thought she would do better and be the mediator and the peace maker instead of taking sides and enabling aubrey in her mess. Shannon is a big let down, but that goes to show you never know who people are unless they show you their true colors.

      None of them will ever be successful on their own, but Dawn is light years ahead of every single one of them in creativity and originality and her solo work proves it. Aundrea is not interested in music anymore, Shannon is just a dancer, Wanita is only for BET and Aubrey music is mediocre as her talent and her image is trashy. ugh I csan’t. I think Dawn wants the money and wants to make the fans happy, but this group is a joke professionally.

      Aubrey did not leak the story? Quit! She did!, but it made all of them look bad not just Dawn.

  18. credits August 15, 2014

    The songs will leak eventually. Producers love to show off.

  19. Ozzy August 15, 2014

    SMH this group broke up before starting! These petty b****** ruined their only shot! This industry isn’t very forgiving….

  20. Rise August 15, 2014

    I know Dwoods is somewhere laughing.
    They need to hurry up release the music, flop
    and fall back into obscurity because this is what’s going to happen. I am not longer a fan. I mean who are they to be doing al this? They are doing way too much!!

  21. dydy972 August 16, 2014

    why is she still talking about this? the group is over now, so girl move on.

    • Fuckshanbrey August 16, 2014

      If you even read a piece of what she wrote, you would see moving on is exactly what she’s trying to do you dumb f***.
