Just when we thought The Weeknd’s music couldn’t get any sexier, D∆WN (formerly Dawn Richards) proved us wrong!
The eclectic songstress was recently “across the pond” promoting her latest album, Blackheart, and decided to put her own spin on The Weeknd’s “Earned It.” D∆WN brought popular U.K. rapper Bonkaz along for the ride during a segment on BBC Radio 1Xtra’s “Targé Menagé Live” show and absolutely slayed a passionate yet haunting cover of the hit single from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack.
D∆WN ’s style was low-key with a printed red and yellow skirt and casual white top as she let her voice be the center of attention. As we all know, she came on the scene through Diddy’s "Making the Band 3" and beat out thousands of other girls for a recording contract, so it’s no surprise that her vocals stay on point! She was clearly feeling the lyrics as she belted:
“You make it look like it’s magic
'Cause I see nobody, nobody but you, you, you
I'm never confused
I'm so used to being used
So I love when you call unexpected
'Cause I hate when the moment's expected…”
