The-Dream and Kelly Rowland

The-Dream was in for all sorts of surprises during his appearance on “106 & Park” to promote his new album IV Play. In addition to receiving phone calls from Kevin Hart and DJ Khaled, his tourmate Kelly Rowland presented him with a plaque for over 50 million singles sold worldwide for superstars including Beyonc√© and Rihanna.

“I’m here to give this incredible genius man this plaque because he has worked so hard and has worked with so many artists,” said Kelly, who shared the stage with Dream during the “Lights Out” tour in NYC.

The-Dream was overcome with emotion and teared up. “I call him a brother now. He’s one of the most special people in my life,” said Kelly, who reflected on her own emotional performance of “Dirty Laundry.”

“The song has really been therapeutic for me,” she said of The-Dream-penned record, which will appear on her upcoming album Talk a Good Game. “It’s a place where I was. I’m of course in a different place now and it’s just very emotional for me, just actually going back to that place mentally and being there. But it’s fine, I’m a big girl now. I’ve grown and learnt from it.”
