Hailing from the NOLA, with past connects to the Diddy-Dirty Money trio, and of course her Danity Kane ties, DAWN came through to the Power 106 studios to perform a stripped-down rendition of her Redemption-featured track “Hey Nikki.”
Currently on The Universe Is Undefeated tour with her DK band mates Aubrey and Shannon, Dawn is also prepping the release of her fourth studio effort New Breed which is slated to drop January 25,, 2019. The New Orleans native delivered the sensual take of her “Hey Nikki” record with only a backing guitar and raspy vocal riffs. On the track Dawn sings:
Hey Nikki, don’t you wanna come and get with me?
I know you’re lookin’ at me, call you over to me
Hey Nikki, I know you wanna see me
Do all the things that I do to him, if you nasty
Lifted from Dawn’s third album, the track is inspired by the late Prince’s 1984 “Darling Nikki” record and takes a different approach to the idea of women empowerment and sensuality.
