In a recent interview with the Singers Room, The-Dream revealed that he is currently working on Beyonce’s new album. Check out what the yet-to-go-platinum singer had to say below:
So what else are you working on and who else are you working with for the rest of the year?
I’m working on a reality show, I’m working with this girl name Kasha who’s here today. We’ll probably get her album done within the week. Ciara’s already started on her project. You know, Rihanna, Beyonce, the same beautiful people every year. It’s a cycle. We’ve gotta get that money.
It’s great to see that Beyonce is maintaining a quiet momentum behind the scenes while she enjoys her vacation. However, while he did create magic for Beyonce with ‘Single Ladies’, this news comes as a bit worrying. The-Dream seems to be a 1 trick pony when he develops a hit with certain artists, with all subsequent tracks following almost an identical formula to the original. In fact, most of Mariah Carey’s ‘Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel’ album was based on the same finger-snapping production and Sesame Street melodies of their initial hit ‘Touch My Body’.
Hopefully Beyonce’s next album does not suffer the same fate as that release. The-Dream may consider a gold album a major accomplishment in his own career but Beyonce is only accustomed multi-platinum.
