The-Dream Works On Everyone Else’s Albums, Now His Own!
As promised, The-Dream dropped Fourplay’s first single yesterday (2/14): “Slow It Down.” You can listen to a live stream of the song – which, with its timely refrain, demands “Enough with the mother-f***ing dance songs/You gotta slow it down” – here.
The-Dream Tour 2013
Producer extraordinaire and singer/songwriter in his own right, The-Dream will release his fourth LP this May. Better known for co-writing the Top 40 hits of today’s radio mainstays – including the ubiquitous “Umbrella” by Rihanna, anthemic “Single Ladies” by Beyonce, and the song behind the face that launched a thousand shrieks, “Baby” by Justin Bieber – the pop savant has yet to enjoy the same level of recording success as his many collaborators.
Because with Fourplay, 2013 just might be The-Dream’s solo year. He’s already started off strong, albeit in the context of another collaboration: Terius Youngdell Nash, as the musician was christened, recently won a Grammy award for his song with The Throne (Jay-Z and Kanye West) featuring Frank Ocean, “No Church in the Wild.” Hoping to keep the successful momentum going, Dream will release his upcoming album’s first track, “Slow It Down,” this Thursday on the national slow-jam holiday of the year: Valentine’s Day
When it comes to production on Fourplay, The-Dream has reportedly been forced to follow the directive of his latest single, and proceed slowly: Helping Beyonce finish her own upcoming album has kept him on the wrong side of the recording-studio glass. Regardless, the music industry’s MVP has promised his fans a May 7 release date, which, hopefully, means not even Queen Bs and killer egos (he’s also begun work on the followup to Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy) will delay the record’s debut.
We’ll have all the updates once The-Dream announces those inevitable 2013 tour dates!
