New Music: The-Dream – ‘Tender Tendencies’

After busting out his “AK47,” The-Dream slows things down on “Tender Tendencies,” one of the new tracks off the commercial release of his album 1977. The Atlanta hitmaker opens up about his insecurities on the vulnerable record.

“I have tender tendencies, you know/ I battle this shit daily, you know/ After my bullshit and charm, these tendencies go off like alarms,” croons Terius.

Due December 18, 1977 includes new and previously released material from his 2011 mixtape, with appearances from Pharrell (“Real”) and Big Sean (“Ghetto”).
