As hitmakers go, The-Dream is at the top of the crop. From Beyonce to Rihanna to Justin Bieber, the Grammy winner has penned career-definers for almost every major star on the charts
Yet, for all his success behind the scenes, he seems adamant on becoming a singing star in his own right. And, despite prior efforts failing to advance his cause, he has tried again with new album ‘IV Play’.
Having called on the likes of Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Kelly Rowland for support this go round, can Dream finally score a hit as the banner act? The answer awaits after the jump…
According to Hits Daily Double, ‘IV Play’ is set to debut with first week sales of…
18,000 – 21,000
No matter which way it’s diced or sliced, this is all sorts of a mucky mess. Of course, this has no bearing on Dream’s hitmaker status, yet given the guests featured we at least expected double these numbers. It really makes one wonder how few units would have been shifted had the project been an entirely solo effort.
Whatever the case, the figures point to a potent disconnect between Terius and the record buying public. Put simply, no one appears to care. Moral of the story? Much like will.i.am, it seems the masses would prefer The-Dream keep his dreams of solo success to himself.
