DAWN Shares “Ay Papi” ft. Brooke Candy + “Slim Thicc” ft. Trakgirl
Boundary-pushing R&B singer DAWN (aka Dawn Richard) released her critically acclaimed new album new breed earlier this year, and today shares a new double-single ahead of a longer project. The first in a series of forthcoming singles before launching a new project in Spring 2020, “Ay Papi”/”Slim Thicc” is out now.
“Ay Papi” features rapper and frequent Charli XCX collaborator Brooke Candy, while “Slim Thicc” features Trakgirl, the fast-rising producer for Jhene Aiko and more. “This series of singles marks the start of a new era,” DAWN explains. “new breed was the introduction to my roots. This era dives in each to each cultural influence specifically, highlighting all the pop influences I’ve experienced with cultural flare.” Check out both songs and the Monty Marsh-directed video HERE.
Since her days in Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money, collaborating and writing with the likes of Diddy, Grace Jones and Justin Timberlake, DAWN has continuously reinvented herself as an independent musician whose artistry goes her music, and includes the world of tech as she is an animator for Adult Swim. She released a series of acclaimed, Billboard-charting solo albums that tread a line between traditional R&B and future-facing electronic music.
