Are Kanye West and The-Dream following in the footsteps of Jay-Z and R. Kelly by releasing a Best of Both Worlds-type album?
After he finishes putting out two albums this year (Love vs. Money and Love King), The-Dream plans to hit the studio with Kanye West for a joint album the pair have been discussing. “The fourth album you hear from me will probably be a record that’s done with Kanye,” he told DJ Skee on his HD2 New Music Show (watch below).
But first, Kanye wants Dream to raise his celebrity stature. Aside from penning No. 1 singles for Beyoncé and Rihanna, the singer-songwriter is still relatively unknown as an artist. “I told [Kanye] I was gonna lift my profile.”
You can get a taste for what the American Dream and Louis Vuitton Don have in store when The-Dream’s sophomore album Love vs. Money hits retail on March 3. The Def Jam labelmates collaborated on a track called “Walkin’ on the Moon.” The album also boasts collaborations with Mariah Carey (“My Love”), Ludacris, Fabolous, and Lil Jon (“Let Me See the Booty”).
