New Music: Dawn Richard – ‘Black Lipstick’

Dawn Richard protects herself from the evils of the music business on “Black Lipstick,” her edgy new record.

“‘Black Lipstick’ is the story of how I found out I needed armor,” explains the former Dirty Money diva, who recently parted ways with Bad Boy. “It’s the trap. The music industry is described as a mysterious woman. The seduction and the betrayal of her. I saw in color but as soon as my eyes set on her, all that was seen was black and white. That is when I knew I needed to put my armor on.”

The Druski-produced track is one of seven that will appear on Dawn’s digital EP Armor On, available March 27.
