EAR CANDY: Dawn Richard "SMFU"

Dawn Richard kicks off 2012 with another single from her forthcoming solo debut, GoldenHeart. Last year, she released a mixtape, "A Tell Tale Heart", then the "December Sky" single from her debut and she recently released another single "SMFU (Save Me From U)".

She has paid her dues as a former member of Danity Kane and Dirty Money. Now, she is breaking out on her own! Some have made the comparison of her vocal style to Brandy which I can see but to me that is such a disservice to both equally talented artists. Dawn his a smooth yet strong delivery that is hers and hers alone. I will admit that she is in the realm of sultry vocalistas whom I admire such as Brandy, Lalah Hathaway, Faith Evans, just to name a few. She is definitely in good company :)
