You can always count on Dawn Richard to pop out a masterpiece or two each year and right on time she’s delivered two new songs Ay Papi and Slim Thicc.
While her last project New Breed went back to her R&B roots, these songs look to the future. Ay Papi gives a sweltering take on Latin music while Slim Thicc takes dancefloor into a new era.
Each of the tracks are accessible but there are production and melodic touches that just push them that little bit further – as Richard so often does.
They have also arrived alongside a joint music video which shows off Richard’s dancing prowess alongside some stunning artistic shots.
These songs are supposedly part of a new era she’s referring to as ‘The Neon Era’.
