Video: Dawn Richard – ‘Wild N’ Faith’ [Trailer]

Wild N' Faith

Dawn Richard sees no evil in the first of three cinematic trailers for her short film “Wild N’ Faith,” a mash-up of “Faith” off her EP Armor On and the bonus track “Wild N’ Young.”

The former Dirty Money member dons several looks in the Eugene Lee Yang-directed video. “I am the goddess of faith sent to restore faith in my apparitions,” Dawn told Rap-Up.com, referring to the three warriors who star alongside her. “This carries the modern day Joan of Arc theme for Goldenheart. Each outfit carries a look of armor.”

The video will premiere August 28, while Dawn’s full-length album Goldenheart is due October 16.

    I love this woman. This is how it’s done. It’s easy to see who influenced her career. But she took that influence and created a new lane for herself.

    @Shaytan, she just looks a little manly to me. She has very masculine features. Just not too cute. She has the talent, but her looks will be her downfall in this industry. Maybe a little surgery.

    i really admire that dawn is moving into a much more conceptual space, creatively with her music- i love that. but the styling & execution of her vision is lacking & seems very forced. i want her to win, but her vision is bigger than her team. she’s gonna outgrow them as an artist, if she hasn’t already. keep pushing dawn.

    @jeremydante, How many times will someone say she USA trying hard il it becomes maybe this is her. I mean she is consistent everyone she steps out. If people keep sayi g te same thing then maybe it isn’t trying maybe its her !!! And you’ve seen 4 seconds of a clip. How can you judge the fashion yet!

    @jeremydante, If you admire what she’s doing. Can you see the video before you judge. I mean artist signed is giving us trash. You call those your fav. Can she get the idea out before you pounce! Just saying. Kill it dawn

    coMEaTmEbRO Reply:

    @jeremydante, I agree, I want the best for her, but everytime she comes out with a video, or releases photo, it’s some kind of “over the top” type stuff.

    It just doesn’t seem like her in my opinion.

    @Carlton, This song itself is a mashup remix of Drakes song.

    Tbozfan10 Reply:

    @Gene, The Drake song is sampling a completely different song as well. Just read the credits dude.

    ITHINKNOT Reply:

    @Carlton, You taking this way too seriously I thought the same thing when I first seen this preview for the fact that Drake and Rihanna are in front of the same backdrop in take care. And when I first heard faith it gave me take care not the whole song but just the little drop at the end of the song before the last chorus. But besides all that I love faith the other song wild n something doesn’t do anything for me.

    [Reply]

    Fyofav Reply:

    @ITHINKNOT, It not taking it seriously it’s just truth. How many video have a white back drop that you haven’t seen. It reminds me of 12 videos that have the backdrop. But a guy kneeling with wires plugged in him reminds you of drake and Rihanna holding each other in the take care video. That’s a reach. If she was holding someone maybe I could say yeah but ummm se isn’t even in the shot. The gut looks like a statue of some sort. So yeah. Gonna saY nah not the same
