Dawn Richard makes a statement with new song, “Waves.”

D∆WN has released a couple of R&B pop-infused gems since 2016’s Redemption, including buzz tracks “Break Me” and “Gravity,” but the innovator is smoothing her sound out with an empowering new tune titled “Waves.”

Why now?

“I promised that i would release new music when i had s–t to say,” Dawn wrote on Instagram. “This is for every woman underpaid, under appreciated, undervalued and undermined… the underdog.”

On it, D∆WN boasts a cocky confidence as a BOSS. “Imma have to take up off my shades so you can see i ain’t playin,” she sings over stuttering production. “Sometimes they seem to forget that you the only reason that they slayin Baby / If you at you job and they promotin everybody who ain’t s–t / Listen,  it’s ok to take a second to remember you deserve this.”

  1. I just can’t with her knowing all the drama and bs she pulled on her fellow DK bandmates. Now she trynna make a female empowerment anthem after she spent her whole time in that group tearing them down? This gets a resounding “Sure, Jan” from me.

    1. You evidently know nothing of Dawns solo work. She did herself and the girls a favor by breaking that joke DK up. And the fact that she is the only member to steadily release respected quality solo music before and after the groups split shows she WAS the only talent of that “group”.

      1. You obviously stan for Dawn and that’s cool cause I’m not saying she’s not talented. Shifty, shady, and a hater? Yea, she’s those, too. We all know her sabotaging ways. Them other girls are all mad talented so don’t discredit, boo. And Aubrey and Shannon have launched a successful career together post DK as Dumblonde. Don’t hate just cause it’s not your genre. Andrea quit music cause she wasn’t interested anymore. D Woods is still doing her thing. Some accountability on Dawn’s part would do her well.
