VIDEO FAB: Dawn Richard's "Bombs"

Dawn Richard just dropped her official "Bombs" video from her R&B/Soul EP, Armor On.  Check out the video, which premiered last night on "106 & Park," inside...

In true warrior princess form, Dawn saddles up for her full solo studio album debut with her new mini EP Armon On.  The track "Bombs," a follow up to "S.M.F.U.," appears on the EP and Dawn explained the concept of the video saying:

"I wanted the art direction to be cohesive with the song and sound of the EP.  Warriors fighting for the same cause. 'Bombs' is the 'Hearts have arrived' record."

The video features tribal-inspired dance and warrior imagery.

Armor On is currently available on iTunes.

Love this video. And I could

Love this video. And I could get used to the song. As for Beyonce, every video from now on that that has dancing in the desert will appearently be considered a ripoff of Runs the World. <------ Stupid. Just plain ol stupid.

Wow, Go Dawn that was hot,

Wow, Go Dawn that was hot, loved the dancing, the custumes, makeup and the song. I don't get the continue comparison of Beyonce's "We Rule The World" but anyone has the right to do their take on it. What I like most about Dawn is she is the only one of from Danity Kane that has stayed true to her art. She was the only one who showed she was serious about her talent. She is not trying sell sex but herself as a artist so you have to give it to her. She is trying to establish herself has as serious artist who doesn't have time to make sure she is at all the parties, dressing stanky, she is trying to get 'her' money. Big props to Dawn, I know her family has to be proud!!!

Who paid a kindergartener to make that feather headpiece for this girl? Anyways don't like her since the Danity Kane debacle, she thought she'd do better on her own... but it hasn't happened yet.

love how this vid had a certain kind of authenticity- loved the vid...need some time to digg the sound but loved the message! Can't compare it to Beyonce's run the world for I already loved the track when I heard it on Major Lazer's "Pon De Floor"-didn't like it because of Beyonce though. Once I heard the track I couldn't take her serious for selling it as her own and all her african dancing and posing...naaaaaaaay- didn't strike me at all. As to Dawn_ great work!!!

Why does this chicks video

Why does this chicks video have to be compared to Beyonce's video? So anybody from now on who does any African dance or Native American influence in a video will be compared to Beyonce's? So anyone who did it before Beyonce just doesn't count right? Because its ...Beyonce? Beyonce stan's please chill out...the song and video are kinda hot. Geeesh!

Wrong- Diddy had nothing to do with this. She's no longer with his label. She's now an independent artist. GYFS

The song wasn't ready yet for

The song wasn't ready yet for release. It needs to be tweaked, the chorus and verses are kind of mashed so it's hard to find the chorus, and when you DO then it's hard on the ear especially the "bombs awayeeeeeee" part. even Soulja Boy knew that the key to commercial success is a catchy, infectious, and unforgettable hook. The video is way too Run The World by Beyonce, and the steps need a lil boost. A for effort, and raw talent. C+ for overall quality of product.

Some of the posters on here

Some of the posters on here are so hypocritical when Beyonce did the thsi type of videos some of you just bashed it well Dawn is doing almost hte same thing and some act like she invented the african dance. this video is not that much better and her voice is just okay nothing to write home about. We will see how her career goes knowing that the music biz relies on gimmicks and how hot looking hte artist is.

This video is a complete rip

This video is a complete rip off of Run the World by Beyonce and you all know it there is nothing original here the dancing is a bit different but anyone with ears and eyes can she she is copying Bey's vid Dawn should of done something totally different so there would not be comparisons, the song sucks anyway. I hope the rest of her CD is better if not then well.... NEXT!!!

She could be onto something.

She could be onto something. I do need her to go back to skinny Dawn though. She is too small and looks like an average video chick with this new thick shape she needs that old sample size body back she looked like a star.

She worked that now! I love her voice and she can really dance. I think she needs better promotion /managment. Truly talented women.

Doesnt Dawn know the formula

Doesnt Dawn know the formula for a hit these days?? 1. Auto tune 2. Pop beats 3. Good promotion That's all that people are doing these days. If you don't jump on the bandwagon, you wont have a hit. It's not even about talent anymore which I think is truly sad.

All the more reason to admire her. She is and always has been a lover of music, not fame and fortune just the creating something that speaks to her. She does not follow trends, never really has.
