While it was only last week that The-Dream released his unexpected EP ‘Royalty: The Prequel‘ for fans to enjoy, the famed songwriter is now following up with the first video from the compilation.
Titled “Culture,” the new visual is something new that we haven’t seen from The-Dream. Shot strictly through his iPhone, the singer shares snaps of intimate moments with his now wife whom he secretly wed earlier this month. Showcasing snaps of their trips around the world, the video lets us know that Mr. Nash is as culturally diverse as he claims to be.
Zoom in on the clip below:
Riot Squad‘s Bynoe drops a new freestyle over The-Dream‘s track ‘Cold,’ which samples Mobb Deep’s ‘Shook Ones.’
Bynoe is currently working on his Evil Empire x Big Mike hosted project Luke 11:23, which is due out this Summer.
His latest mixtape, Riot on Everthing 2 (Ski Mask Way) hosted by Dj Amazin is available at iamBynoe.bigcartel.com.
While the gossip world was swirling that Terius “The-Dream” Nash is now a married man to a woman that’s not his estranged baby mama, the famed artist has surprised fans with a brand new EP!
Titled, Royalty: The Prequel, the new project comes as the first release on his new label venture, Contra Paris. Featuring 7 new tracks, the hitmaker collaborated with longtime partner Christopher “Tricky” Stewart to give fans something to hold on to for the summer. Stating that they will do their “best at showing you the world through the eyes of the Young Black Dreamers,” The-Dream’s new project is a different vibe than we’ve received from him in the past.

Following the racial remarks that surfaced by ex-Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, The-Dream took it upon himself to send a strong message with the socially conscious new song “Black.”
Inspired by the need to continue fighting for equality in all aspects of our world, the hitmaker has now released the official music video for the powerful song. Traveling to South Africa to film the visual, Dream is seen amongst crowds of various protestors in the slums as they stand up for their rights and fight for their cause.
He sings about his personal experience with racism and desire to help uplift anyone that feels oppressed.
The visual closes with the message, “Black isn’t just a color, black isn’t just a race anymore. It’s a feeling and a place from which one feels isolated by the world of the governing elite.”
Check out the brand new video below!
Veteran songstress Mary J. Blige is turning the summer heat up! When news dropped that she would be providing the musical accompaniment for the upcoming Think Like A Man Too film, we were quite surprised.
While her Pharrell assisted tune “See That Boy Again” may still be sinking into your ears and mind, MJB is wasting no time giving us another new song to rock to. Featuring musical mastermind The-Dream, the upbeat track titled “Vegas Nights” will bring you right to the dance floor.
Singing out, “Just let me get a little Michel tonight / With a little Gladys, alright,” the duo pays homage to some of the greatest to ever do it. Trust us, you’ll wanna turn this one up to the max!
Two step into the new single below!
Earlier this year R&B hitmaker The-Dream surprised fans when he revealed that he has parted ways with Def Jam Records. While we haven’t heard much from him since the announcement, the singer-songwriter released a culturally conscious new song titled “BLACK,” in response to Donald Sterling’s racist comments.
Taking his first ever trip to Africa this week, Dream has been shooting the music video for the powerful song in Capetown. Giving fans an early look at the visual he posted a couple shots to his Instagram page.
Shown in a smoke-filled street in the slums, Mr. Nash simply wrote “#everywhere there’s a Chicago! #Capetown.” The video appears as it will match the songs strong messages.
Additionally, rumors are floating around that Dream has signed with Capitol Records. The single, which is now on iTunes, lists Capitol as the label, while radio airplay reporting company Mediabase also lists Capitol as the label behind the song. Interesting… We will have to wait for an official announcement to know if he signed a label deal or if this is just a one-off type of situation.
At this year’s past Grammy Awards, Dream revealed he is working on a new album and it will be titled ‘Fruition’.
“Black isn’t just a color. Black isn’t just a race anymore. It’s a feeling and a place from which one feels isolated by the world of the governing elite. Classism is the new racism,” says The-Dream.
In the wake of Donald Sterling’s racist remarks the singer/songwriter has released a powerful new song simply titled “BLACK,” about the injustice in the world and its alienating effect.
“I feel real black right now, real black right now,” sings Dream over the marching instrumental, while the lyric video shows images of civil rights leaders and historic events.
Take a listen to his inspiring anthem below!
While he may have parted ways with Def Jam Records earlier this year, The-Dream is not taking a break from his own artistry anytime soon.
As the platinum hitmaker made his way down the red carpet at the 56th Grammy Awards this past Sunday, he revealed some plans with HipHollywood’s Jasmine Simpkins. After some jokes, talking about his outfit and Jay Z, Dream shared that he indeed has a new album in the works.
“I have an album called ‘Fruition’ that’s in the works right about now,” he said. “Give me about 6 months to set it up properly.”
Additionally Dream mentioned that he would like to work with Lorde.
