Published Jan 29, 2009Though you may not know him by name, if you pay attention to pop music, you're likely a fan of the-Dream's production skills, as the artist, along with production partner Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, has been responsible for Rihanna's "Umbrella" and Beyonce's "Single Ladies," as well as their hit "Shawty Is A 10."
Come this spring, you can hear the-Dream showcase his skills once again as he releases his sophomore solo album, Love vs. Money on March 10 via Def Jam. The album, which follows Dream's 2007 debut, Love Hate, is set to include guest spots from Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Ludacris, Fabolous and Lil Jon.
In a recent interview with Billboard, Dream expressed that the label was unsure of a lead single, stating, "L.A. Reid has lots of problems on his desk; he's definitely having a hard time choosing [a single]... It's such a great album that he's considering releasing two singles - one for pop and one for R&B."
