Dawn Richard is having the time of her life as a solo artist. Beyond her Goldenheart album debuting at the #1 spot on iTunes R&B/Soul Charts, the album also charted at #10 on Billboard’s R&B Album Charts and #2 on the Heatseeker Charts to stellar reviews.

“To see these reviews and charts were overwhelming,” says Richard. “My team knows how hard I am on myself because I want us to be great. I’m always thinking if we are going too far, stretching ourselves too thin. Will they understand it? They did. Both the ‘hearts’ and critics. We created a project that was not conventional R&B yet it met both critics and the ‘hearts’ expectations.”

In addition, Dawn also shot with Fashion photographer Chris Clinton for International clothing company, Aritzia.

“My mom told me that when I was a kid, I looked at the TV and said I wanted to be in it,” says the New Orleans native after the shoot, catching her breath and taking a sip of water. “I didn’t know what I was talking about, but I knew I wanted something bigger—I dreamed bigger.”

GoldenHeart was influenced not by other musicians, Richard says, but by aesthetics. The painter Gustav Klimt, who uses bright gold leaf in his works, inspired the album name, and she says she watched the 1980s dance film White Nights, starring Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines, on repeat. Richard says she wanted “a grittiness and a softness in the album, so you’ll see this hard and rough sound pieced together with such vulnerability.”

It looks as though on February 16th during her HBO special. we will finally get to see the Beyonce we all have been waiting to see. To keep the buzz up about her new documentary a quote from the film has been released where B talks about her questionable pregnancy with Blu Ivy which USA today released yesterday.

“There’s a stupid rumor. The most ridiculous rumor I think I’ve ever had about me. It’s crazy. To think I would be that vain—I respect mothers and women so much and to be able to experience bringing a child into this world, if you’re lucky and fortunate enough to experience that, I would never, ever take that for granted. It’s the most powerful thing you can do. Especially after losing a child, the pain and trauma from that just makes it mean so much more to get an opportunity to bring life into the world. It seems like people should have boundaries,”

After reading this I can not wait to see what else Beyonce will reveal to her fans I hope they will release Life Is But A Dream on DVD after the HBO airing this will be very interesting.
