The-Dream Reveals New Album Name; Sets Release Date

Published: Tuesday 15th Feb 2011 by Sam

It appears The-Dream is banking on the masses having short-term memory. For, after vowing to retire from being an artist last summer, the singer-songwriter, in a recent interview with MTV, revealed the title of his new album. Also sharing the release date.

Full story after the jump…

Yet another case, point, example of doing it ”cause he can’. One look at both his album and single sales make that resoundingly clear. Then again, when you pen smashes such as ‘Single Ladies’ and ‘Umbrella’, you are afforded such opportunities – whether folk want to buy it, or as has been the case, don’t.

In any case, are you checking for ‘Love, IV’?

Your thoughts?

    I thought his first album was his best, but he sort of lost me afterwards…

  2. Joe Ronald February 15, 2011

    I thought he is the husband from Christina Milian?

  3. Timago February 15, 2011

    FLOP!!!!! NEXT!!!!!

  4. Joe Ronald February 15, 2011

    LOL above me

    What the f*** is up with the “Love” in the album names. I mean, get creative.

  6. Silviu February 15, 2011

    He should just let it die!
    He did produced some nice songs, but he f***** up Mariah’s “Memoirs” album!
    He should just stick to producing and not singing, and I’m very charitable with that.

    Love King WANTED to be a great album. The songs had great beats and themes. But The-Dream’s ego took over instead of writing about the subject at hand.

    iHope when he writes a love song he will learn to write about LOVE and not about his cars, money, and material things, then say “I love you” at the end and expect it to be a smash hit love song.

    Nobody is interested in seeing you, The Dream. You and Ne-Yo may want to retreat back to behind the production board and just write good songs for others to perform.

    Ne-Yo is a decent artist but nobody’s really thirsty to see him perform.

    Miss Nash, gurl bye!!

    Well, Dream this is your last chance, so you better not flop! What goes around comes around (and I’m sure your advice for Cici can apply to you as well). Karma’s a b****!

    i’m gonna buy it. despite his lacking in the vocal department, most of his songs are solid. I didn’t like Love King so much, but I’ll be bold enough to say that his first two albums are masterpieces

  12. BORN THIS WAY EQUALS EXPRESS YOURSELF February 15, 2011

    SICK OF THIS FOOL AND I CAN’T STAND WHAT HE DID TO CHRISTINA MILLIAN! TALK ABOUT USING SOMEONE FOR A PIECE OF ASS, IMPREGNATING THEM AND THEN DROPPIN EM!

  13. Prince&Queen February 15, 2011

    Born this way i Cosign!!! His FAT ASS need to hang it up!!

  14. KELENDRIA ROWLAND February 15, 2011

  15. IAMWHOIAM February 15, 2011

    I bet his productions will be far better than what he gave Ciara.

  16. anthony February 15, 2011

    @iamwhoiam
    gurl sit the f*** down this is about nightmare and not about ciara lets stay on topic hun…..

  17. Melanie February 15, 2011

    His fat womanizing ass needs to rap it up all he can do is write songs for other people. None of his singles have been hits and his albums are never really pure R&B for some reason.

  18. BeyBeyBey February 15, 2011

    definitely YES! can’t wait

  19. BDABOSS February 15, 2011

    @Kisses I agree! The first album of his is one of my favorites ever. The second album was okay, and it took a while to grow on me. Now that last album was garbage! He lost me when he titled one of his songs “Makeup Bag.” lol. I don’t have a problem with creativity, but that song was nowhere near single material.

  20. 2bad2bme February 15, 2011

    TO ALL MUSIC ARTIST STOP SAYING YALL QUIT THEN BACK IN THE GAME!!!!

    How can you retire from music?
    Let The Dream express himself. I think we all AGREE he makes GUD music.He or NO man has power to take over. PLEASE QUIT saying he used Christina Milian.

    He did the same ish to NIvea. We never heard that he doesn’t owe Child Support, which means he is a good father.Never saw or read him acting out of character on any media outlet, kinda says he knows the time and place. I think the ladies have good taste in men. Christina Millian kinda step UP his swaGGah.

    Christina Millian i’m your biggest fan. Academically in the entertainment world you deserve to be BEYOND top.You need better promotion.Hit me up-cdmansc@aol.com.
    My spirit tells me because of your CONFIDENCE,you know, its your time for INCREASE!!!
    (J)esus (O)thers (Y)ourself

    Dream, PLEASE don’t give us a cd about yall relationship. I trust you won’t though. Do a song with Nick Jagger? And have a remix with Diddy- Dirty Money. Call the song, “MANUP” Trust it will be a HIT!!!!!

    The Dream is an amazing songwriter and vocal arranger. He’s created hit songs for so many of today’s artist spanning from the crossover sensation Beyoncé to the urban songstress’s Brandy, Nieva, and Mary. J. Blige, to the reigning Princesses of contemporary pop, Britney Spears, Rihanna and Katy Perry. His ability to create relatable songs through a melodic force is his strength: songs that are so unique that they convey a messages of love, heartache, sexuality, independence and issues that people may face in real life The production supporting the melody is usually drenched in a electromechanical New Age R&B versus his more intimate work, an echoing ballad with slow burning synths. The Dream can write a hit without even trying, hence, his nickname “Radio Killa” because he successful crafts many different opus that just are hits and “kills” other producers. As far as his vocal ability, he’s not a great singer. The Dream relies on his songwriting and production to shine through because his voice is weak. In today’s times, one doesn’t have to be a great singer in order to be a success in the entertainment. All you need to have a gimmick, something that will attract listeners to actually “hear” you. The Dream’s vocal ability is very unenthusiastic . His voice is thin and weak and at times, very annoying. However, this doesn’t seem to stop him from being a “singer.” As long as he has a fan base, I guess he will continue to create music that people will seemingly eat up like free samples at the grocery store…

    Nobody is gonna buy his garbage anymore. He will be wasting his own time and money doing this. He needs to just take his Single Ladies fortune and stay behind the scenes.

  26. Chile Please!! February 17, 2011

    I can’t with this Care Bear!! His album should’ve been called “Memoirs of an Imperfect Teddy Ruxpen” He is such a joke & his production! NEXT!

  27. MEEKS February 17, 2011

    I agree with Malcolm, The-Dream is a great artist and producer. If you haven’t listen, I mean really listen to his music, than just keep your b******* ass comments to yourself. Listen to his albums more than just once before you make a judgement on his music. Dream do you and f^*# these haters.

  36. JIMMY CHANGCHANG June 7, 2011

    what are you guys talking about with singles? Some of the best artist barely put out singles. Perfect example Lil wayne with “The Carter III”. The only big single he had was “A Millie” yet that album broke major records in sales. So shut the f*** up dumb f**** lol The dream is that n****

  37. luis June 26, 2011

    why is everyone hating? the dream is a great artist. i have all 3 of his albums and i love each one except for one. all of you just need to STFU and let him do his thing if you dont like the dream then dnt be f***** reading or worrying about him like really though. all i know is that i cant wait for his new album..

  38. PoeT July 25, 2011

    I support The DREAM cUz he’s an artist and human. Those of y’all who hate jus can’t relate but I think all of his albums have been good and off-set one another and the next will be the best until he comes out with another after that. So keep doing ya thing DREAM you do have real MuSiC lovers listening to your talent!!!
