The Dream “IV Play” Album Listening Party

Last night, I went to an album listening party  for Grammy award winning Singer/Song-Writer, The Dream.  The EVP of A&R at Island Def Jam newest album “IV Play” hits stores Tuesday 5/28/13. The album which has features from Kelly Rowland, Pusha-T, Beyonce, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, and Jay-Z is sure to help couples everywhere get it on (hence the reason they were passing out condoms at the event lol).


The album definitely showcases the fun/ratchet side of The Dream.  We all know him for creating such hits like Rihanna’s “Umbrella”, Britney Spears “Me Against The Music”, and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”, he even has some classics of his own like “Falsetto” and “I Luv Your Girl”.  From what I’ve heard of this album, The Dream definitely brings that sexy side of R&B back, but in a very ratchet way, I mean he has a song called “Pussy”.  I can definitely hear this CD bumping in clubs and in the bedroom.  I don’t know if I would say it is a “make love to” album, but a “fuck to” album is a better description; perfect for summer fun!  I will be buying it, because a little ratchet is always GREAT.  The album is not all vaguer, he really gives you a good album with a lot of great elements to it; it gives me what I need from The Dream.


The party, sponsored by Ciroc, was held in Chelsea and had some pretty big leagues that came out to support The Dream, including Jay-Z’s right hand man Ty-Ty, Roc Nation recording artist Bridget Kelly, Blogger Necole Bitchie, and DJ Drama.  The Dream introduced the album explaining his creative process and how it was important to make music he liked and not what would get him play on the radio.  I truly respect that and from what I heard this isn’t an album that you will forget about a month from now when the next hot artist puts out an album!

I highly suggest you get this album on the 28th!  Below is his new single “Where Have You Been” with Kelly Rowland and also a song on the album called “Turnt” featuring Beyonce & 2 Chainz.  Let me know what you think!
