New Song: Dawn Richard, ‘Pretty Wicked Things’

Dawn Richard slinks her way through ‘Pretty Wicked Things.’

We’re hard-core Dawn Richard stans around these parts, and our stan-ship has gone into overdrive after hearing her latest track, “Pretty Wicked Things.” Formerly of Diddy-Dirty Money fame, Dawn released her solo EP earlier this year called Armor On (FYI, it included the totally bumpin’ “Automatic“), and now she’s prepping for the release of her full-length debut, Goldenheart.

Co-penned by Dawn’s longtime collaborator Druski, “Pretty Wicked Things” is our first sampling of Dawn’s new sound. The record is a sultry, slinky dance jam that speaks of a love turned sour. In her own words, Dawn explains: “It’s the story of the beautiful things in life that get ruined by the wicked.” Dawn’s also clear on the fact that “Pretty Wicked Things” isn’t her first single. Rather, according to Dawn, who spoke to RapRadar, “We are introducing the setup to Goldenheart with the release of ‘Pretty Wicked Things.’ This isn’t a single. It’s a setup. We have a lot of surprises for the hearts. Grow with us.” We totally will, Dawn! Too bad we can’t literally grow with you and actually look like you, but we’ll take anything we can get.
