New Video: Dawn Richard – ‘jealously’

Published: Wednesday 5th Sep 2018 by Sam

Dawn Richard salutes her New Orleans roots in the video for ‘jealously.’

The eclectic songbird hatches the visual as she gears up for a unique reunion with Danity Kane bandmates Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex. 

Together, the trio will be embarking on the ‘Universe Is Undefeated Tour,’ a US trek which will see them fuse together sets from Richard solo, O’Day and Bex’s Dumbblonde duo, and a finale comprised of DK hits and fan favorites.

With the jaunt set to kick off later this month, it’s clear Richard is eager for fans to familiarize themselves with her latest jam.

Watch ‘jealously’ after the jump…

With the clip, Richard says she aimed to shine a spotlight on the Washitaw Nation, a group of black Americans that claim to be a sovereign Native American nation; a group Richard’s family has been in for generations.

The singer sports a traditional headdress sewn by tribe leader Chief Montana.

Of the song and its video, she said:

Jealousy is a conversational record.

Everyone experiences the encounter with their partners’ ex differently. This record explains how a ninth ward girl from New Orleans handled hers. The verse is my honest letter to the ex and her admission to jealousy is the hook. This song speaks on how jealousy can be a drug.

The Visual explains my roots in the Washitaw Nation Tribe. I wanted to show New Orleans in a light most have never seen or are aware of. The Black Indian and Power of our traditional garb are shown in the visual. Chief Montana created my hand sewn headpiece representing the power of being both King and Queen. Our tribes spend all year beading these costumes to then dance and show off their work among other tribes. I used this practice as a metaphor for my response to his ex. Simply that I’ve put a lot of work beading and sewing my relationship, something she will never understand or never be able to do.

What did you think of the end result? What are…

    But I thought DK3 was reuniting?
    When will these girls (particularly Dawn) understand that DK3 is better than any one of them will ever be as a solo act????

      I think what they are doing this time around is smart. If the interest is still there they will create new music as DK. But like most groups, they want to express themselves as individuals and I think the tour will be the best of both worlds for them.

      Especially since she has about 4 solo albums besides Danity Kane she’s a seller of her sounds!!

    • Caleb September 6, 2018

      But they aren’t better than Dawn solo at all. She is much better by herself.

    I like the song. I would’ve preferred Brandy singing it.
