Dawn Richard’s Solo Career Moves Forward, Leads Top 10 Most Popular R&B Singles of the Week

Last week, The Braxtons sisters (Toni & Tamar) generated the majority of plays, but it only lasted seven days.

Dawn Richard reunited with Aubrey O'Day, Shannon Bex, and Aundrea Fimbres for Danity Kane while maintaining her bustling solo career.

The question of "why did Dawn join the relaunch of Danity Kane?”, when it appears she found a successful creative outlook as a solo artist? " is a debate with no answer. Seeing Dawn at the head of the Most Popular R&B Singles of the Week gives evidence to fans that believe she should move forward without the rest of the ladies.

The new-age hip-hop Art of War remix of "Valkyrie," produced by Noisecastle III, is her interpretation of mythical maidens. “I wanted a record that was packed with confidence, a sort of cocky reminder that you will remember my mark,” said Dawn Richard. Apparently people see the same make believe character as Ms. Richard.

Christina Milian's "Encore" was initially featured last week, the record crept slow gaining attention this week. Like "Dip It Low," the new leak has a pop crossover appeal aimed at not limiting any type of music lovers. The electric chords are friendly for a playlist filled with Daft Punk and David Guetta. The additions of Christina Milian, PJ Morton and Jay Sean are changing the image of Cash Money.

Mario is too young to say he is making a comeback and the songs he recently dropped are far from outdated. Mario follows up his Nicki Minaj-assisted lead single "Somebody Else" with the brand new offering "Fatal Distraction." The new ballad pumps Cupid's breaks when the feelings of love are reciprocated. Unfortunately for Mario, the lady opposite of him cares less than he does, so he sings his little broken heart out.

His fifth studio album Evolve is expected to be released in October.
