Dawn Richard Adds ‘Castles’ to Blackheart


Danity Kane is now a thing of the past, but Dawn is out to prove she’s here to stay. Gearing up for the release of her second album, Blackheart, the former member of DK dropped off a new singlem “Castles” to Yahoo! Music. The track may come as a surprise to fans, as the single wasn’t listed on Dawn’s project last month when she revealed her track list.

Penned by Miss Richard herself and produced by Swagg R’Celious, “Castles” touches on Dawn’s hopeful outlook on something that wouldn’t last. The GoldenHeart songstress reveals to Rap-Up that the song was written about her relationship with DK with lyrics like, “We knew it wouldn’t last/But we kept hope as our lead/We stood right through breeze/And screamed out, ‘c’est la vie'”

Give Dawn’s latest a listen and check out Blackheart in stores tomorrow (Jan. 15).
