Dawn Richard needs no savior from goons or goblins this Halloween, it’s her lover who she needs to be saved from on “SMFU (Save Me From U)”, a new heart-throbbing cut from the budding artist to be listed on her forthcoming solo album, GoldenHeart.
“Who needs an enemy, when the one you love is tearing you down and dragging you into the ground?” she croons.
Produced by Druski, the record is silky with its relaxing vibe and demonstrates Richard’s vocal savvy.
Fans may rejoice, in some way, upon hearing the news of Amy Winehouse‘s first posthumous album, Lioness, to be released by the holidays. Via MTV News,
“The world will finally get to hear the music Amy Winehouse was working on before her unexpected death earlier this year. According to a press release from her English label, a posthumous collection of unheard studio tracks, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, will be released on December 5.”
“The 12 tracks on the disc were put together by Winehouse’s longtime collaborators, producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, and will include songs she recorded before, during and after the releases of her two studio albums, 2003’s Frank and her smash 2006 breakthrough Back to Black. “It was said by all who worked with Amy that she never sang or played a song the same way twice,” read the release announcing the disc. “It quickly became apparent to Salaam and Mark that they had a collection of songs that deserved to be heard, a collection of songs that were a fitting testament to Amy the artist and, as importantly, Amy their friend.”
With a host of sorrowful listeners of Winehouse’ sound still in mourning, it’s refreshing to look forward to new music…a treat that fans were expecting for so long.

“I mean, Kanye’s a genius—I love the dude—but Watch The Throneshould have been Nas and Jay. N*ggas would still be talking about that even if the album was wack. I’m not taking sh*t away from ‘Ye. Kanye and RZA should go in maybe. Maybe Kanye and Dr. Dre. But as far as emcees, Nas and Jay.” – Method Man, on Jay-Z and Kanye’s collaborative album.[Complex]

Rihanna’s “We Found Love” video disgraceful?
Before she set the web ablaze with her “Thinking About Forever” rendition and Every Girl EP, Roc Nation’s Bridget Kelly toured alongside Jay-Z on his “Blueprint 3” tour.
