The-Dream is getting personal. The R&B hitmaker shares the contents of his phone in the video for “Culture,” the first visual off his EP Royalty: The Prequel.

Since parting ways with Def Jam earlier this year, The-Dream has launched his new “designer and culture label” Contra-Paris and reunited with his production partner Tricky Stewart.

Video: The-Dream – ‘Black’

The-Dream

The-Dream marches against oppression in the video for his powerful anthem “Black.” Inspired by Nelson Mandela, the Daniel Sanwald-directed clip was filmed in Langa Township, South Africa, and is dedicated to those who feel alienated by racism, classism, religion, politics, and sexual preference.

“I needed to take a step in a direction away from my comfort zone and do and say and sing something worthwhile,” said The-Dream. “I think this way all the time, and I spend most of my day in the battle of being Black and being a minority. Money has not changed my status in the department of racism and or classism.”

“Black” is the first release by The-Dream since leaving Def Jam and reuniting with longtime production partner Tricky Stewart. The hitmakers are working on numerous projects for this fall.

Watch The-Dream break down barriers and spark a conversation.

New Music: The-Dream – ‘Black’

Black

In the wake of Donald Sterling’s racist remarks, The-Dream speaks out on a new song entitled “Black.” The singer-songwriter pens a powerful track about the injustice in the world and its alienating effect, while the lyric video shows images of civil rights leaders and historic events.

“I feel real black right now, real black right now,” sings Dream over the marching instrumental.

He ends the video with a 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. Classism is the new racism.”

Hear The-Dream’s inspiring anthem below.
