Devin Dawson's 'Dark Horse' Reveals Things About Him Even He Didn't Realize

March 1, 2018
The title track of Devin Dawson's debut album, "Dark Horse," is an insightful song about the singer and his likes, dislikes and a few quirks. It opens with the lines "People always ask why I wear black, Where'd I get my style and why I never smile in pictures . . ." According to Devin, however, he DOES smile in pictures. At least in his own way. He tells us:  "I didn't write that line. I wrote that song with two of my best friends and that was one of the lines where like if I hadn't written it with them I couldn't have like seen things about myself that are so true. Like, I don't notice that. I don't look at myself when I'm getting a picture taken though, you know, and for me that just is my smile. That's just how I smile, and so it's just something that I kind of realized was me. It's not like a thing that I'm trying to do. It's kind of been funny though because I sing that song and then when I do meet-and-greets and stuff people are like, 'Can you smile in this one,' and I'm like, 'That is how I smile (laughs). That is my smile,' you know?" Devin has a lot to smile about these days because his debut single, "All On Me," is a Top Five hit and climbing. He performed the song last night on NBC's Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon during his debut appearance.
