Dawn Richard, known professionally as D∆WN, is a multi-platinum American singer-songwriter who started her career as part of American girl band Danity Kane, and part of the group Diddy-Dirty Money with Sean “Diddy” Combs and Kalenna Harper, through which she earned multiple platinum albums, a 3x platinum single, and a gold single.
D∆WN launched her solo career in 2011, and has since released five solo projects: ATellTaleHeart, ‘Armor On’ EP, ‘Whiteout’ EP, Goldenheart and Blackheart. Both Armor On and Goldenheart reached #1 on iTunes R&B/Soul in a matter of hours, reached iTunes Top 20 All Albums, and charted on mutiple Billboard charts, with Goldenheart (released January 2013) receiving universal praise from The Guardian, SPIN, Complex and more.
Earlier this year, D∆WN concluded her transition into The Black Era, a project which incorporated the musical experience with visual collaborations, choreography and high fashion to accompany the second installment of her album trilogy — the Blackheart album. With influences from trip hop to electro pop to soul, the Blackheart album (released January 2015) solidified D∆WN as more than just a progressive R&B diva, showcasing sharper edges, more experimental electronic sounds, and consummate fearlessness. Producing and writing alongside her partner in crime Noisecastle III, the duo make genres a thing of the past and future a thing of the now. Receiving critical acclaim from Billboard, Pitchfork, SPIN, Fact Magazine, New York Times, LA Times and many more, Blackheart peaked at #1 on the iTunes Electronic chart and reached the Top 20 iTunes All Albums chart, also charting at #1 on the Billboard U.S. Top Independent Albums chart, #2 on the Billboard Electronic/Dance chart, and #3 on the Billboard U.S. Top Heatseekers chart.
