Today, The-Dream celebrates the release of his new EP, Love You to Death. Subscribers of Apple Music and Spotfiy can stream it below.
Love You to Death (no relation to the Tegan and Sara project of the same name) follows The-Dream’s surprise visual album, January’s Genesis. It also comes amidst a very busy year in which the R&B artist collaborated with Kanye West, Beyoncé, Solange, and SBTRKT.
As Billboard points out, the new effort spans five tracks, including “Lemon Lean”, a so-called “response” to Queen Bey’s Lemonade (to which he contributed), and “Rih-Flex”, a song about women with “Rihanna-like confidence.”
The new EP precedes The-Dream’s next full-length, Love Affair, due out on March 24th. In an interview with Billboard, the crooner talked about the relationship between the EP and his forthcoming album:
“There’s no direct connection. Love Affair is done. It drops on March 24th. You’ll start to see that rollout at the top of the year. I have thousands of songs that have their own lives. They’re not loved any less than the other songs. I just thought that this was the right time to speak with these songs. Especially with the record ‘Lemon Lean’. It’s about you now trying to understand me. We hear all the time about trying to understand the woman. I think I have a good grasp of that. I have to give you some truths about me and how I feel on this side for all my men that can’t say it how I would.”
