The-Dream Calls On Famous Friends for ‘The Love, IV’ Album


The-Dream is pulling out all the stops. The singer-songwriter, who has worked with everyone from Mariah Carey to Kim Kardashian, is reaching out to an all-star roster for his next album, which he plans to pack with more guest stars than ever before.

Previously called Love Affair, the fourth installemt in his Love series will now be titled The Love, IV, he tells MTV News.

“This album is gonna have more features, which is unique for me, ’cause I usually don’t carry a lot of features,” he says of the follow-up to last year’s Love King. “I’m calling it out now. I’m cashing in my chips. I’m gonna try to get everybody, Wayne, [Kanye], Jay, Drake, Mary, anybody that I’ve worked with or [loaned] a hand to, I’m trying to get on my album.”

Though The-Dream previously announced that he wanted the album out by August, he has set a tentative June 7 date. In addition to working with his partner Christopher “Tricky” Stewart, he also plans to hit the studio with producers Polow Da Don, Carlos McKinney, and possibly Dr. Dre.

    YES, can’t wait! I see he’s branching out with more producers, that’s good, although he was just fine with his usual production team.

    I thought he had “retired” from making his own music but I can’t wait for this!
