New Music: Dawn Richard – ‘Bum Bum’

Dawn Richard

Dawn Richard shows her appreciation to her Hearts by giving them more unreleased material from her Goldenheart recording sessions. On the flirty “Bum Bum,” Dawn brings all the boys to the yard, but she’s not about to give up the goodies.

The upbeat record, produced and written with frequent collaborator Druski, plays off Dawn’s Haitian and New Orleans roots, sampling the New Orleans song “Iko Iko” and referencing Sister Nancy’s reggae hit “Bam Bam.”

Dawn is currently headlining the “Goldenheart” tour, which will stop at Yoshi’s in San Francisco on March 20 and The Roxy in L.A. on March 26. She is also hard at work on her second solo album Blackheart.

    @valerie, babe have you heard her entire album ? Goldenheart is an album with a message. Please don’t comment about an artist of you don’t know them! Her entire movement is about power. And even this song says you can’t have my body. People please know your music and artist!

    @valerie, you can’t know dawn as a artist. Her movement is so positive and her lyrical delivery is one of the best! This is an unreleased track that she prob didn’t use because it was a bit to commercial but this is amazing! And so diverse

    Khia needs to hop on this one, she would kill it. Kinda tired of hearing Nicki on every song, she’s becoming repetitive and boring :/

    She just doesn’t disappoint does she. I mean like REALLY! Dawn Richard & Druski we see you.
    Don’t you almost not want them to blow up because then we’ll have to share them w/the rest of the late a** mainstream listeners. Then they’re gonna be like oh she’s so talented. Um yeah where were ya’ll when she was grinding it out by her damn self.

    Love this.

    Why do people keep saying Nicki needs to hop on a track with Dawn? Just curious. I heard that in another thread. Did she express interest in working with Nicki or vice versa?
