Clearly in high spirits, The-Dream celebrated winning a Grammy for his contributions to “No Church In The Wild” by revealing a boatload of news. First and foremost, he’s finally ready to release his long-delayed, newly-retitled fourth solo LP.
“May 7th, my album drops and the name is Fourplay,” he told Billboard. The album, originally entitled Love IV, is slated to hit stores sometime in March. The effort’s lead single, “Slow It Down”, will be unveiled on Thursday, which should offer plenty of couples the perfect baby-makin’ music on Valentine’s Day.
The album’s delay stems partly from his continued work on Beyoncé’s next album, although he revealed very little new details. “I’ve been told to zip it,” he said of his work on the eagerly-anticipated LP. Considering he falsely promised new music from Queen B pre-Super Bowl, maybe that decision’s for the best.
And while Bey’s people are asking him to stay mum, the R&B crooner did reveal he’s working on Kanye West’s new solo album. Dream will be heading to Paris sometime in the coming weeks as the duo team up for the followup to 2010’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
Below, watch Dream (then-going by his birth name Terius Nash) get dumped in the video for “Wake Me When It’s Over”, off last year’s 1977.
