ABIR Celebrates Everyone That Are Making Things Happen With “Girls” [New Music]

After riding the “WAVE” with Masego on her debut release earlier this year, ABIR is back at it again with, “GIRLS,” which was premiered via Billboard.

Never one to bite her tongue, the 21-year-old Moroccan-born singer/songwriter sips tea and throws shade towards all the catty girls and BS boys that she’s crossed paths with. However, ABIR insists that “this record isn’t about being bitter or hating on anyone – it’s actually a celebration and an anthem for all the young girls and boys making sh*t happen!”

ABIR doubled down on that notion by enlisting a dozen of NYC’s most influential young girls for a one-of-a-kind social media campaign on Instagram, featuring London Zhiloh, Minahil Ayazm, and seemingly every “IT” girl of Summer 16. Having already shared the stage this year with The-Dream, DAWN, Elhae and many others, expect ABIR to keep the shows coming.

Check out the track above.

D∆WN Lands Business Partnership Deal with MBK Entertainment/RED Associated Labels


D∆WN is readying to release Redemption, one of the most hotly anticipated releases of 2016, through a new partnership with MBK Entertainment/RED Associated Labels. The fiercely independent-maven will reveal details soon for the third and final installment of her critically-acclaimed music trilogy series.


‘Redemption’ marks The Red Era of the trilogy, it is a celebratory effort and D∆WN’s freedom song. In 2013 a courageous and regal songstress released her solo debut album, Goldenheart which reached #1 on iTunes R&B/Soul and iTunes Top 25 albums chart within hours. Goldenheart received universal acclaim from contemporary music critics who hailed D∆WN as one of the best new acts in pop and R&B.

Fast forward to January 2015, D∆WN released her sophomore album Blackheart, many notable sources named the album one of the best of 2015 including Rolling Stone, Fact Mag and Pitchfork. For the rollout, D∆WN revealed a darker imaginative side and released a total of nine visuals within a six month period of the release, a ground-breaking feat for an independent artist. The album peaked at No. 2 on Billboard‘s Dance/Electronic chart.

As an independent artist, D∆WN is carving out an inimitable lane and breaking barriers in music, film, fashion and technology with her innovative approach. She has captured the hearts of a dedicated and diverse fanbase spanning hip-hop, pop, R&B, EDM and dance music. YouTube and the tech-savvy publication The Verge recently announced D∆WN as the first-ever artist to perform for the newly launch YouTube LIVE 360° series. D∆WN is also set to perform her ‘Redemption’ live show internationally including North American festival stages at FORM Arcosanti (May 13), Moogfest (May 21) and Folsom (May 27).

Major congrats to D∆WN!

SFPL Music: D∆WN (Dawn Richard) Puts A Fly Spin on “Hello” by Adele


In this incredibly-fly remixed version of Adele’s “Hello” produced by Swagg R’Celious, D∆WN does only what she knows best by making this cover all her own, and it’s amazing!

In a conversation with Pitchfork, Dawn said:

“I’m always skeptical about doing covers.  If I do them, I usually take them and morph them into my own.  For example, when I covered Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” my producer and I sat down to create a distinct sound for the track.  Recreating “Hello” was no different because I had the urge to cover it in my own way. I just couldn’t resist a record that was so well written.”

Take a listen as she transports you into her world:
