In the last few years, the former Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money singer Dawn Richard has gone solo, making some truly stunning and spaced-out art-soul albums and finding a little more attention each time. If you think of Miguel as the right-now version of Prince, it might make sense to think of Richard as the right-now version of Grace Jones. In recent months, Richard has changed her name to D?WN, and we’ve posted new tracks like “Running From Sane,” “Roses, and “Billie Jean x Dance.” As The FADER points out, the latest track that she’s shared is “Hollywould,” an underwater R&B banger with an oscillating synth riff that hits like a drug. Listen to it below.
Richard’s most recent album is Blackheart, which came out back in January.
