"Dumb" is a song by American R&B recording artist Faith Evans, recorded for R&B Divas (2012), a compilation album led by Evans which featured the first season stars of the same-titled TV One reality series. It was written by Evans along with Chris "Brody" Brown, Toni Coleman, Achia Dixon, Larrance Dopson, Lamar Edwards, Camille Hooper, and Jaila Simms, incorporating a sample from the composition "Broadway Combination", penned by Christian Arlester for his band Dyke and the Blazers. Production on "Dumb" was handled by music production team 1500 or Nothin', featuring additional production by Evans.

The retro soul track was released as the compilation album's second single following Evans-led lead single "Tears of Joy". A music video for "Dumb" was photographed by Bishop Moore and features Evans singing and dancing in a 1970s-themed clip.
