So I have to say, if you are a fan of smoky vocals and sick as fuck ambient beats, jump on itunes and buy "ARMOR ON" by former member of DANITY KANE, now i can't say i was skeptical of this album, because i was a huge fan of "Diddy-Dirty Money" not for Diddy, but for the "dirty" i thought they rocked every track, and the direction seemed very different for a project manned by the Big-Shot producer, now listening to "Armor On" i can safely say, i think Dawn had more sound control. the album is heart felt from Intro 2 Outro, and has several hit sandwiched in between. "Bombs" seems to be the biggest and first hit off the album, i think its a bit mainstream, but i dig it. she even has a video that i have posted at the bottom. Now i hate to compare, but i feel greatly that her vocals are very close to Brandy's and i am a huge! fan of hers, so in a way, this album is what i would want from Brandy, so its a little bit of a fix for me, while i wait for 2/11 (Brandy's upcoming album) and in the process, Dawn has proved her ground and has made me a fan. Dawn has announced that her major solo debut project will be a broken up trilogy of albums entitled "GoldenHeart, "BlackHeart", and "RedemptionHeart". "GoldenHeart", the first of the trilogy is expected to be released in 2012. On June 19, 2011 a buzz track entitled "Stuck On Mad" was released to the public. Followed by a release of a remix to Frank Ocean's Novacane. The remix which was co-written by songwriter Intyce, hit the net on June 21, 2011 and reached over 5000 downloads within a few hours. Intyce was enlisted as one of the writers for Richard's solo debut. SMFU (SAVE ME FROM U) was released on the internet 31 October and is set to be on the first album. The video was premiered on 106 & Park on January 5, 2012. This album is set to have an concept of a alter-ego named NEON. The concept has not yet been discussed. Before GoldenHeart is revealed, Dawn will release Armor On as an introduction to the concept, the fan favorite Heart Music and of course the husky alto vocals that swoon her audiences. Armor On was released on March 27, 2012. Her current single is Bombs.
