Dawn Richard, a third of the group Diddy Dirty Money, dropped a new mixtape and fans are all over it. Titled Prelude to a Tell Tale Heart, it is available for free download on her site dawnrichardblog.com. She spoke to The Huffington Post about the mixtape, which has already been downloaded more than one million times. “A Tell Tale Heart is the metaphorical fall into my heart. It’s the story of six years of pain, lost, love and redemption. My heartbeat is the narrator with each experience taking you further into the journey. It's inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s poem, and it was something I did to see if people were ready to hear me as a solo artist. The reaction has been incredible,” she says.

The singer is also working on her solo album.
