Dawn Richard Shines (Sans Diddy-Dirty Money) in "Automatic"

Still on the rise in her independent movement, singer Dawn Richard has just released a video for her second single off Armor On today, "Automatic".

Since her departure from Bad Boy Records and Diddy-Dirty Money, Richard has been touring across the country and enjoying the ride. In an interview earlier this month with AllHipHop.com, Richard shed light on the meaning behind the phrase "Armor On."

"When I say Armor On, I’m speaking of the reason why I need to guard my heart in the first place. I always quote Daphne Guinness because she’s my all-time favorite," Richard told AllHipHop.com.

“I went out to the world, and I realized it wasn’t friendly and we needed armor. And this is reality. We come into this world so naïve. I’m not telling people not to come into it. I’m choosing to tell people to armor up, suit up, and go out into this battle called life and conquer it. I think that’s me loving literature from the old days," she added.
