Dawn Richard has released a sultry video for her new single, “Jacuzzi.”
The Danity Kane singer shows off impeccable dancing skills in the grainy, lo-fi visual directed by Zebretta Johnson. “I know n***as they sleepin’ / Borderline dreamin’ / Missing out on this good lovin’ / I’m showing out if you’re coming closer,” she croons.
“Jacuzzi” opens with a voice recording of Richard proclaiming her Creole identity and New Orleans roots, which will be an underlying theme in her album, Second Line: An Electro Revival. “The definition of a second line in New Orleans is a celebration of someone’s homecoming,” she said in a press release.
“In death and in life, we celebrate the impact of a person’s legacy through dance and music. I’m celebrating the death of old views in the industry. The death of boxes and limits. I’m celebrating the homecoming of the Future. The homecoming to the new wave of artists. The emergence of all the King Creoles to come. This is our revival.”
Second Line: An Electro Revival will mark Richard’s sixth solo album, following 2019’s New Breed. The effort, which was previously announced with the single “Bussifame,” is due out April 30.
