To celebrate the release of her new EP Armor On, Dawn Richard hit up “106 & Park” to premiere the video for her first single “Bombs.” Beaming in orange, the New Orleans singer spoke about the long road to her solo project, the dance-heavy video for “Bombs,” and her upcoming tour.
“We are pushing the limits,” Dawn some of her new music. “R&B is really linear and it’s not a bad thing. I just think being with Danity Kane and being with Dirty Money, I’ve experienced so many things sonically and lyrically that I want ya’ll to be moved. It’s time for something a little bit more refreshing. I want to be that person for you guys.”
While the EP is already No. 1 on iTunes R&B/Soul chart, Dawn is not settling. She’s looking forward to her full-length album GoldenHeart. “I’m so excited for the album ’cause that’s what I prepared for from the beginning.”
Dawn will hit the road with Young Money singer PJ Morton, starting in their hometown of New Orleans on April 6 and traveling to Atlanta, New York, L.A., and Washington, D.C.
