    DAWN has returned with a choreography-heavy video for her new double-release, “Slim Thicc” and “Ay Papi,” featuring Brooke Candy.

    The clip kicks off with the singer—real name Dawn Richard—performing the dancehall-inspired “Slim Thicc” against a white backdrop, showing off her dance chops. She then changes into a military-esque costume as the visual segues into the Latin-tinged “Ay Papi.” The video also features cartoon-like animations and special effects.

    “This series of singles marks the start of a new era,” DAWN said in a press statement. “New Breed was the introduction to my roots. This era dives into each cultural influence specifically, highlighting all the pop influences I’ve experienced with cultural [flair].”

    “Slim Thicc” and “Ay Papi” are the first tastes of DAWN’s forthcoming project, due out next spring. Earlier this year, she dropped a sensual video for “Sauce,” a cut from New Breed.
