First Look: Dawn Richard Shoots ‘Faith’ + ‘Wild N’ Young’ Video

Dawn Richard

Dawn Richard transformed into a warrior goddess while shooting the double video for “Faith” and “Wild N’ Young” in Los Angeles over the weekend.

“I am the goddess of faith sent to restore faith in my apparitions,” the former Dirty Money diva told Rap-Up.com, referring to the three warriors who appear alongside her in the video. “This carries the modern day Joan of Arc theme for Goldenheart. Each outfit carries a look of armor.”

The short film, directed by Eugene Lee Yang, serves as the segway into her Goldenheart album, due October 16.

Other looks included a spartan warrior and a geisha, for which Dawn donned white padded shoulders, long nails, and seven-inch heels covered in gold and silver snakes.

Rap-Up TV will have more from the set later this week.

    Bombs remains her best video. Simple, quality and consistent with the theme of the song. It made sense. Something tells me she’ll miss the boat with these two like she did on with Automatic.

    @Kylie, once again u will say these comments and them her video will come out and slay and make you all believers. You say she missed the mark with automatic but MTV just made that video top pop video of the week. And bombs was not simple. She was wearing a large feathered headpiece. Mark my words when I say you will eat these words u just said

    @Kylie, Opinion, I respect it. But I don’t think people get that Dance can tell story. “Automatic” literally told the story through dance. I mean you see how she was dancing robotic, hence “Automatic” & the purpose of the song. Her movements were telling the story, while she was performing it, with the words on the track of the music video.

    The shoes are silly and so unnecessary. These OTT outfits did not work in Automatic why do it again?

    Let Wild n Young be a tropical spiritual rave with dancers, dancing a rain dance for victory, in a forest and Faith a praise & worship to God and her dude set in New Orleans. If not. I’m over it.

    You can’t give me dance in every video and no connection to the lyric.

    @Gene, she was barely wearing anything in Automatic so I don’t think the clothing was over the top. The only thing that lacked in that video was the transformation from the “Stepford Wife” (which was filmed, but cut from the video for some reason – To my annoyance)to the android, to the final look. I felt like it could’ve been tied together better but she killed the choreo so I was satisfied. Other than that, I agree with your rainforest idea! That would be SO crazy.

    @Gene, but that’s what separates her from the pack is her movements (dance). I think as time goes on and the budgets start getting bigger she’ll be able to give more visually.

    @Gene, And how is this silly. I mean is Rihanna wearing biking short fishnets at Hackney not silly. Oh I bet u thought that was dope. Or beyonce wearing glass gareth Pugh heels for run the world was that silly. That was couture right? I swear people are funny. Why can’t videos have themes. Katy perry always does amazing videos and she always pushes things. Why can’t a black girl in r&b do the same. So sad we are so close minded. Dawn dances. Would y tell Janet to stop dancing in her videos if that’s what we know as her style. Or Aalyiah? No we wouldn’t. Why must she always do simple videos. Where is the movie and effort. That’s why music is lacking. Cause people like u guys above with no vision. Dawn will kill. Watch

    Umm… I don’t know if I’m feeling the shoulder pads and all that extra ness but the shoes are hot. This is the thing I LOVE about Dawn. She does things that are over the top, but she has the talent to back it up so I’ll deal with it. Ashanti tried that mess with the video for “Woman You Love” and I couldn’t deal because… She lacks in some areas. Dawn can sing, she can dance, she has swag for days, weeks, months, YEARS. And she’s really ahead of her time. She’s bringing something new and innovative to the table for R&B and anything new for us (slaps back of hand) is a challenge to accept. Go head Dawn! But lose the red lip. It’s too much. lol

    I kept voting for Automatic on 106 and park but it never made the countdown neither did Bombs it was taken off the voting list within weeks. I really want to see Dawn win she really deserves it.

    Some of y’all out here talking trash forget that she’s an independent artist. She can’t be putting too much money in her videos. On her limited budget, it’s way too clear to see that she slays it every single time(:. Y’all gotta be supportive & the GTFOH with your negative bullsh_t. I personally can’t wait for the video or the upcoming album.

    If y’all don’t like Dawn don’t search for her or click on a blog topic about her, she shouldn’t exist to you doesn’t that make sense. & Dawn is used to having shade thrown at her she said it herself, she’s been gettin’ hated on even before she got her big break so……..8 YEARS into it yea.. I don’t really think she cares about what people have to say or think about her!!!!! #Heartsheaux or in Dawn’s words Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm .

    THE AMOUNT OF SHADE THAT IS BEING THROWN TOWARDS DAWN IS ABOMINABLE!!DAWN HAS NOT ONLY PROVEN TO US TIME AFTER  TIME THAT SHE IS MADE FOR   MUSIC BUT MOST ALL THAT SHE IS A SURVIVOR. FOR ALL OF YOU WHO ARE “TRUE” GOLDEN HEARTS YOU’D KNOW THAT ,BUT FLY BY NIGHTS AS MOST OF YOU ARE WOULDNT.  I’VE  NOT ONLY BEEN ON A MUSICAL JOURNEY WITH DAWN BUT ALSO A PERSONAL & VIRTUAL JOURNEY AS WELL SINCE 2005,AND I’VE SEEN HOW HARD SHE HAS WORKED TO GET TO WHERE SHE IS. DAWN PUTS  HER HEART AND SOUL INTO ALL OF HER SONGS AND TAKES “MOST OF US” INCLUDING MYSELF ON MUSICAL EXPEDITIONS THAT I NEVER WANT TO END. OF COURSE LIKE MOST ARTIST THEIR STYLES MAYBE DIFFERENT WHEATER IT’S THE CHEROGRAPHY,LYRICS,PRESENTATION,OR FASHION THEY’RE ALL BRINGING SOMETHING NEW TO THE TABLE AND DAWN IS NO DIFFERENT FROM THOSE OTHER INDIVIDUALS. I WILL GO ON TO SAY THAT I BELIEVE SHE IS TRULY ONE OF THE MOST PIVOTAL INSPIRATIONAL ,& HARDWORKING INDIVIDUALS IN THE INDUSTRY AND A TRUE EXAMPLE OF A GOLDEN HEART. #TEAMGOLDENHEARTSHEAUX
