From here on out, Dawn Richard will simply be known as DAWN.
To be honest, we don’t blame her for the identity switch up — after everything Dawn Richard’s been through with Danity Kane, a fresh start doesn’t sound like such a bad idea.

With the new name comes new music, a trippy new song called “Genocide.”
Of the song, DAWN writes:
“The world is on fire. In light of the absurd amount of deaths and riots happening, it felt only natural to stand and say this is enough. Watching the appalling things said by Fox News, Donald Trump, and multiple others with social power, I feel the need to riot and protest in my own way. I immediately went to the studio to voice my frustrations. This isn’t a single. This isn’t meant to be mainstream. It’s meant to make people stand. To make them feel. To make them go out and peaceful rally together for change. This is the new Genocide and I won’t stand by and say nothing anymore.”
