THE DREAM REVEALS ALBUM NEWS
Just a couple of days ago, The Dream announced that he is working on a fourth studio album, but now he’s revealed some more information about what’s going down.
Originally, he said that he was going to title the album Love Affair (all his previous albums had ‘love’ in the title), but he has swapped to the title The Love, IV.
“This album is gonna have more features, which is unique for me, ’cause I usually don’t carry a lot of features,” he told MTV News. “I’m calling it out now. I’m cashing in my chips. I’m gonna try to get everybody, Wayne, Kanye, Jay, Drake, Mary, anybody that I’ve worked with or loaned a hand to, I’m trying to get on my album.”
Usually, The Dream works exclusively with producers Los Da Mystro and Tricky Stewart, but this time he plans to get in the studio with producers Dr. Dre, Polow Da Don, Carlos McKinney and Kanye West. Originally, he announced that the album would be out by August, however he’s set his eyes on June 7th for release.
