The-Dream Named EVP at Island Records
The-Dream is suiting up and heading into the boardroom. The singer-songwriter has landed a new day job as Executive Vice President of Island Records.
The R&B star, who is signed as an artist to Def Jam, will oversee talent on the pop label, home to Mariah Carey, Adrienne Bailon, and Kristinia DeBarge.
The-Dream, born Terius Nash, took to his Twitter page to thank his fiancée Christina Milian for her support, among others. “Thank you Christina for your wonderful belief in me. I love you!” he tweeted. “Also I want to thank the entire Nash family and Milian family for the super support you give! This doesn’t mean I have extra money, it means I have extra bills. LOL.”
The Radio Killa Records CEO will put his hitmaking skills to good use at Island Records and its parent label. “I look forward to the challenge of rebuilding music for not only Island Records, but for Universal Records as a whole,” he said. “Today I’m humbled and blessed.”
The-Dream’s first order of business will be finishing his own album, Love King, tentatively scheduled for release by the year’s end.
