    DAWN (full name Dawn Richard) has released two new tracks, “Die Without You” and “Buttah.”

    “Buttah,” as its title implies, is a smooth, old-school R&B number that showcases Richard’s acrobatic vocal runs. “Die Without You” is Richard’s ode to someone who’s lifted her up when she was low. True to that message, she’s turned “Die Without You” into a means of boosting other musicians by encouraging them to put their own spin on the song.

    “We left open bars in the record to allow artists to put their own feature on the record. Lay your own featured verse down. I’m gonna share them with the world to share your talent,” DAWN wrote on Twitter, where she’s also been sharing musicians’ new verses and takes on “Die Without You.”

    Both tracks follow another double-single DAWN released last November, “Slim Thicc” and “Ay Papi.” Stream her latest songs below.
