It is really hard to get excited for a Dawn Richard album – even though I have been a fan for awhile – when she’s basically ripping off Brandy during her Afrodisiac era.
I mean this:
is pretty much this song:
Sure, Dawn Richard and Brandy have similar tones, but the similarities in songwriting and vocal production is disturbing. I mean does “S.M.F.U.” sample Coldplay’s “Clocks” too?
I have no doubt she can do better than this, but this is not a good look. At all.
