Dawn Richard Performs Beyonce’s ‘Run The World’ In China

Published: Sunday 12th Oct 2014 by Sam

Dawn Richard is ditching the drama of Danity Kane and again embracing the solo route.

As fans await the release of the disbanded trio’s final album ‘DK3’ (due October 28th), the group’s arguable nucleus Richard is touring China on her own.

We’re not entirely sure about the premise of the trek nor what is hoping to be achieved, but what is certain is that a clip of Dawn performing her own rendition of Beyonce’s ‘Run The World’ awaits after the jump…

Hmm.

Your thoughts?

    Ugly t***** flop

    • LB October 12, 2014

      D.Woods sounds like a t***** name though

    Why do these people insist on butchering Beyonce songs. First Cheryl, now her. You should’ve posted Sam Smith covering ***Flawless. Now he’s a singer.

    • Rosie October 12, 2014

      Go eat a d***.

    • LB October 12, 2014

      What is flawless about an 80 chart peak?

      • Lydia October 12, 2014

        Why are you addicted to throwing shade at Mrs Carter?

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        What is flawless about your shade???

      • LB October 12, 2014

        First of all, that’s not me, I would have said something like “what the point in butchering a song that was already horrid, trash and repulsive in the first place”, but I didn’t because I didn’t say that.

        I’m sure that is a troll, just like I’m sure the comment dubbed “Rosie” above is a troll.

      • Lydia October 12, 2014

        The question still applies.

      • LB October 12, 2014

        Additionally, I don’t have time to listen to good ratchet anthems. When I want to listen to good, successful music I just put my girl on RIHpeat.

      • LB October 12, 2014

        I’m not addicted at throwing shade at Beyonce, her fans do the shading for me, I just work with what tey give me.

        I was just giving you a taste of my type of comments, so you can differentiate between a troll and me.

      • LB October 12, 2014

        Case in point, the troll posted again,

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        Too bad it ain’t critically successful… *sips tea*

      • LB October 12, 2014

        What’s the use when Beyonce can’t sell an album? Rihanna still has that album of the year nomination, so sit.

      • Lydia October 12, 2014

        Hmmm your comments beg to differ. Have a nice remainder of your day though… On TGJ!

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        CANT SELL AN ALBUM???? BLOODY HELL…

      • LB October 12, 2014

        The 20 minute VMA performance couldn’t even lift the flop that is beyonce.

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        It lifted the blooming ratings…

      • LB October 12, 2014

        But didn’t the EBT awards get more viewers?

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        Ah yes, the awards in which Bey ALSO performed and won in!!!

      • LB October 12, 2014

        Too bad nobody saw either of those. The arena was empty when that tired performance came on. It contributed nothing.

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        She still won though…. And Bey was on her sold out stadium tour at the time… *sips tea*

      • LB October 12, 2014

        But just like with the HBO special, people didn’t care.

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        Yet she still won and had the last laugh…

      • LB October 12, 2014

        But the 888k viewers didn’t have HBO or beyonce laughing.

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        But the sold out shows and $100 mill did…

      • Niaboo2000 October 12, 2014

        It’s not a single d*ckhead. The fact that it is
        on the charts is good.

  5. Beysus October 12, 2014

    Hmmm… *sips tea*

    • LB October 12, 2014

      Still have my girl on RIHpeat?

      • LB October 12, 2014

        TROLL

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        WTF is this???? Both of you F!CK OFF!!

  6. LB October 12, 2014

    Well since the troll that Sam refuses to take care of is here, I’m out…PEACE!!!

    • Beysus October 12, 2014

      BYE B****

      • LB October 12, 2014

        Said HBO to your fav after her flop special?

      • LB October 12, 2014

        That Matthew paid for? Why couldn’t he pay for a good chart position?

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        HERE COMES MORE TIRED SHADE!!!

  7. Slay_Hive October 12, 2014

    That was cute. It’s always wierd to see people covering a Beyonce song. Beyonce can truly make a song her own, that no one can duplicate.

    • LB October 12, 2014

      Beyonce can’t even make a song her own. That’s why they always flop.

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        And what recent song has she covered????

      • LB October 12, 2014

        Sis, beyonce can’t even make her own songs her own. She steals them from credible writers and still can’t get them to chart.

      • Slay_Hive October 12, 2014

        Her SEVENTEEN grammys say otherwise, you obsessed b****! 😉

      • LB October 12, 2014

        Oops. That Matthew paid for? Why couldn’t he pay for a good chart position?

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        The album charts say otherwise….

      • LB October 12, 2014

        Didn’t beyonce chart in the 50s last week? Not to mention her singles haven’t seen the top of the charts since gaga used her 5 years ago.

      • Slay_Hive October 12, 2014

        Someone should buy your fave some since there so easy to purchase. 13 number 1 hits but 7 grammys, and most are features?? Why won’t ya’ll save your $1.29 to buy her more?

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        Ummm 5 consecutive #1 albums??? We don’t need no single hun…

      • LB October 12, 2014

        I think you do when beyonce’s album sales are only 5 million more. Not to mention rihanna has over 100 million more record sales. Matthew can buy grammys for her, but can’t get her better numbers? Sad.

      • Slay_Hive October 12, 2014

        why must you be bothered with Bey’s non-promoted singles and her Double Platinum album, that others struggle to achieve with hit singles ?? Instead, you should worry more about Rihanna being scared to release that album and why the Super Bowl doesn’t want a classless p**** patter on their stage!

      • Slay_Hive October 12, 2014

        Why is Beyonce 5 Million albums ahead of someone with more albums tho? kii B**** sit

      • LB October 12, 2014

        She’s recording hit singles. Don’t worry about her. Worry that beyonce is currently selling 3k a week. Lana is selling more.

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        LANA???? Haaaaaaaa

      • LB October 12, 2014

        Stalled and local, just how the hive likes it.

      • Beysus October 12, 2014

        Hmmm no…

      • Slay_Hive October 12, 2014

        DEATH, I wonder which generic direction Rih will take next. She’s known to stick to the Top 40 radio formula, and instead of releasing an album of substance, strictly R&B, and working on those horrendous vocals, that her studio engineers work so hard to hide. LOOOL

    • LB October 12, 2014

      I agree f**. Dawn is an ugly, self hating frog with no credentials. She shouldn’t dare touch Queen Bey’s ***flawless catalogue.

      • Slay_Hive October 12, 2014

        DEATH!!! That’s right! 😉

  8. Indie October 12, 2014

    Hunty go back to Danity Kane and earn some paper singing your own songs! You Have Lemonade, Tell Me and Rhythm OF Love patiently waiting for videos and live performances and you choose to auto tune Queen B!!! Several Seats Boo, Call Aubrey and Shannon and save yo yourself!

    • LB October 12, 2014

      She is an ugly manly hater and Aubrey is a botoxed p*** star with no vocals.

  9. Thot October 12, 2014

    Can someone answer this question?
    Why do y’all entertain TROLLbird? Lol seriously.

    • Beysus October 12, 2014

      We thought we killed him last night… But apparantly not…

  10. Shaqueeta October 12, 2014

    I feel like I just watched a Karlie Redd/Joseline Hernandex performance…This was HORRIBLE…I used to love Dawn but this is a hot mess from the autotune, dancers, unengaged audience, like i’m literally cringing watching. R.I.P Danity Kane and R.I.P Dawn Richard.

  11. NOLIES October 12, 2014

    I hard to lime her before her so became bigger than her FLOP career. She needs to lay off surgery too.

    “the VMA performancewas a
    bore” maybe so but you cant
    provide
    a link of rihanna doing
    anything better!
    “ratings for on the run tour
    were poor” 600k on basic
    cable. Not 2 mention it was
    completely sold the f*** out
    & with 6 more dates would
    have outgrossed diamonds!
    “15 min VMA set did not
    increase her album sales”
    Week after she performed at
    the VMA’s hser album sales
    rose from 4k to 15k. The tour
    wouldnt have done much
    cause people who attended
    were diehard fans which
    meant they probably already
    had the album.
    “Beyoncé hasnt outsold
    Unapologetic” by the time
    dec 13th roles around she
    will. Taking 1/2 the time that
    it took your fave 2 sell that
    3.5mill.
    “Rihanna have bigger album
    sales around the world”
    Nope. 33mill ww – 15mill US
    =18mill outside the US vs
    26mill ww – 10mill US = 16mill
    outside US & you really
    should stop with the beyoncé
    is local thing because if my
    math is correct then
    beyoncés 1st 3 albums alone
    has sold more ww than all 7
    of rih’s combined! How a
    local have 3 out of 5 albums 2
    sell 5mill+ WW & the global
    star only have 2 out of 7?
    #Navylogic You just showed
    how delusional you are!!

    • Mark111 October 12, 2014

      “Rihanna have bigger album
      sales around the world”
      Nope. 33mill ww – 15mill US
      =18mill outside the US vs
      26mill ww – 10mill US = 16mill
      outside US”

      No b****, you’re not chopping that up. WORLD is the whole WORLD and WORLD WIDE Rihanna sold more albums and records. I’m sick of the pest trying to twist and turn stats around to make Bey come on top. She’s smoke and mirrors, don’t make me expose all her tricks.

      • BossB*tchBeyoncé October 12, 2014

        I didnt chop anything up you said rihanna sold more albums ww
        more albums & i clocked you. You said she was local i just showed you that she has sold more albums outside the US than rih has. Now if your talking record sales then common sense dictates that some one that has released more albums and singles will sell more than someone that releases less than them. Common sense dictates that comparing 5 albums to 7 just isnt fair because the person with more material will more than likely come out on top. Common sense dictates that if you want to compare beyoncé album sales then you should probably do it based on 5 of rih’s album to make it equal & fair. But I guess you just cant expect common sense from the navy. *Sidenote-you shouldnt be talking about smoke n mirrors not when yur fave got passed up by the superbowl for basic perry the most basic of the basics. Only Smoke n mirrors i see is rih yode lay!!

      • Mark111 October 12, 2014

        Before I read your BS, your math is wrong. Rih sold a min of 35 million albums worldwide and minus 10 US sales would be a min of 25 million albums. So your clock is wrong hooker.

      • Jessica October 13, 2014

        Beyonce has better WW sales than Rihanna though as well as US.
        Those are facts. Rihanna has never sold over 5 million internationally. Bey has.

    • Mark111 October 12, 2014

      Oh and Rihanna opened the VMA’s twice and the Cocky/WFL WAS better.

      • BossB*tchBeyoncé October 12, 2014

        “Oh & Rihanna opened the VMA’s twice” was this suppose to mean something?? “Cocky/WFL was better” highly doubt that hence the reason BasicPayola is doing SB b4 her.

      • Mark111 October 12, 2014

        Doesn’t have s*** to do with the VMA. Just like the pest, dodging subjects just like Beyonce dodges her falsettoand head notes.

      • Jessica October 13, 2014

        Beyonce has great head notes while Rihannas remain non existent. Don’t do it.

  13. BossB*tchBeyoncé October 12, 2014

    My math jsnt wrong. Your #’s obviously are:
    Music of the thots:1mill(not sure)
    A thot like me:1.5mill
    Wide Hole Gone Wider:7mill
    RatedThot:3mill
    THOT:5.7mill
    ThotThatThot:4.5mill
    UnaThotegelic:3.5mill
    =26.2

    • Jessica October 13, 2014

      Beyonce has sold more albums than her. The struggle! Looool @ Wide hole gone wider!

  14. BossB*tchBeyoncé October 12, 2014

    Nothing is funnier than when a Rihanna stan of all people starts talking about vocals. You guys need 2 stick 2 the redundant #1singles shade. Because vocals or anything to do with talent just isnt your forte. Not when you stan for Rihyodelay

  15. georgia23 October 13, 2014

    There is no bigger Dawn Richard appreciator/fan than myself… However, I don’t think this was a good look for her. HOWEVER – What I MUST SAY is, if nothing else, Dawn Richard knows how to get a dime. She messed up by hitting Aubrey and they are playing the HELL out of her right now. I don’t blame her for hitting the road and getting a little experience out of the country. It’s an opportunity for a vacay and to get your name out. Hopefully she gets back in the studio and brings us some quality material.

  16. Joonyer October 19, 2014

    Daaaa Fuqqqqq – Lip Synch…. Buttuhhhh….She sounds horrible.
