Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money alum Dawn Richard—a.k.a. DAWN, and formerly DΔWN—has kept us on our toes since last year’s wholly enjoyable new breed, dropping a pair of singles back in November, and now following those up with another set of new tracks, “Die Without You” and “Buttah.” Though they’re yet to be assigned to a new record, a press release for the new singles indicates that there’s plenty more DAWN on the way.
“This series of singles marks the start of a new era,” she notes in the PR. “new breed was the introduction to my roots. This era dives [into] each cultural influence specifically, highlighting all the pop influences I’ve experienced with cultural flare.” While “Buttah” sounds a little more like classic R&B DAWN, “Die Without You” ventures into the realm of rap, with a hard-hitting trap beat and a tasteful tinge of Auto-Tune.
