We cannot express how stoked we are to see our newest album, GoldenHeart by Dawn Richard, debut on Billboard’s Top 10 R&B Albums and 22nd on R&B/Hip-Hop Albums! To top that, GoldenHeart is #2 on Billboard’s HeatSeekers Albums.
This amazing accomplishment is the culmination of months of hard work and countless leaps of faith. In just the first week of her album release tour, Ms. Richard went from New York City and Philly to Atlanta and Vienna, Austria to promote her first ever solo LP. Her schedule has been non-stop: SOBs for her album release concert, interviews with Hot97, Sway in the Morning, Glamour, JET (tip of iceberg), the famous J&R for an in-store performance and signing, then FYE for Philadelphia and DBS Sounds in Atlanta for CD signings. Before the month’s end, she will find her way back home to NoLa where she’ll pay a visit to Clear Channel’s Uptown Angela, Xavier University, and the legendary Peaches Record Store. Did I mention GoldenHeart premiered at the top of iTunes-R&B/Soul Chart? Or that she’s the #2 New Artist on Nielsen SoundScan? That did just happen.
What a great testament to the power of Independent Artists taking control of their careers and obtaining direct distribution to their fans. GoldenHeart has broken new ground for Hip-Hop, R&B, Soul, and EDM in the world of independent distribution. (Re: Vibe, SPIN, LA Times, Huffington Post, stupidDOPE, and The Guardian)
We here at Altavoz Distribution congratulate Dawn, Druski, and Our Dawn Entertainment for this awesome accomplishment. Blood, sweat, and tears really do pay off. Like the philosophers Nas and Puff Daddy proclaimed back in 1999, they can hate us now, but we won’t stop now.
