Video: Dawn Richard – ‘‘86’

The day has finally come for Dawn Richard. After surviving two groups, departing Bad Boy, and releasing her acclaimed EPs Armor On and Whiteout, the former Dirty Money member forges ahead with her solo career with the release of her long-awaited debut Goldenheart.

With the album in stores and on iTunes now, Dawn celebrates the release with the short film for “’86,” directed by Eugene Lee Yang. In the powerful visuals, the leader of the Hearts pays homage to her past including Danity Kane, her childhood, and native New Orleans.

“We’re using all the things in my past that people may view as negative as a catalyst to be inspiring—to fight for something,” she explained.
