New Music: Dawn Richard – ‘Bombs’

Dawn Richard

Tik tok. Dawn Richard goes boom on “Bombs,” the fierce first single off her 10-track EP Armor On, available now. The former Dirty Money diva, who is now a free agent, explodes with confidence over the Druski production.

“It’s really aggressive and what I love about is it’s our ‘Hearts have arrived’ record,” Dawn told Rap-Up TV. “It’s such a confident record and the way we approached it is super aggressive and super cocky.”

The dance-heavy video will debut later today on “106 & Park.” Check out our track-by-track preview and download the entire EP on iTunes.

    Don’t get to excited. Her fans started purchasing at 12:00am. That #2 is not a real statistic. I do wonder how many downloads there has been though.

    @Nothingnew, Excuse me? I designed her Tumblr page. And the “Queen of Hearts” title was MY idea. Look out for yourself and stop being a HATER!

    When I go to musicchartfeeds.com/itunes.rnb.soul.chart/ I don’t see her on there. Is there another place to go to find out where she is on the charts? Let me know.

    This track is really dope. Sounds like a major label debut first single. The production sounds somewhat remenicent of Niggas In Paris with that snare that Kanye and Hit Boy use. For dawn to release this independently is big i can see this doing very well on Billboard if promoted right.

    @SdotB, Okay, maybe you can interpret his comment for me. It’s not just the grammar! That Looooooooong sentence makes no sense. In fact if you care so much about his comment why don’t you take his advice. You are responding to me!! This isn’t about Dawn either.

  12. KeepingItFunky

    I bought the EP & I’m enjoying it!! It’s different & refreshing. Nothing like anything you would hear on the radio, besides maybe 2 tracks. People should open their ears & expand their tolerance for a new sound. Goodness gracious. I’ve seen the EP go from #67 to #7 to #2 in like 2 hours last night…. And it’s STILL there. Don’t be nasty & try to take that away from her. There are people buying it. Not sure who; but hey *shrugs* And I believe she’s doing this without a label. She should be proud of herself. Congrats Dawn!

    I am glad she has loyal fans. She is going to need them to support her. The GREAT singles had already been released. SMFU remix and Scripture is just weird. Glad I got SMFU(original), Change, and Blacklipstick for free.

    I think many people forget what Dawn have accomplished; she had 2 albums that went platinum with Danity Kane who I thought had a huge fanbase, she just finish dropping like 10 videos in 3 years, touring, award shows performances, and chilling with one of the most popular man on the planet in Diddy. By all no means she was in a group, but if she can take 40% of the fans with her for the start of her solo career that is damn good head start.

    @Unknown, RIght, people forgett dat DK had a huge loyal following for a band, with only two hits they sold a lot of albums.
    I hope she still can get some fans bc this a different sound than dk.

    But either way i love this EP, Bombs and Automatic the best

    I purchased the EP this morning and I was not disappointed. Heaven, Faith, and Bombs are my favorite tracks. You may not like the music, or Dawn (even thought most of you don’t know her personally) but you gotta respect her hustle! She is doing this independently and she is doing a great job.

    Not this EP. Anybody else (2012). I thought Lil’ Kim’s album was already out. Another rapper. Real music will come back to life. *hopeful* “Ain’t changed, Ain’t changed still the same!”
