The-Dream Readies New Album ‘IV Play’ for May

The-Dream’s “swap meet” hat may have stolen the show at the Grammys, but he’s turning the attention back to his music. Fresh off his Grammy win, the singer-songwriter has announced plans for his fourth album IV Play.

The follow-up to 2010’s Love King will arrive on May 7, The-Dream told Billboard backstage after picking up a Grammy for “No Church in the Wild” with Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Frank Ocean.

The oft-delayed project was previously titled Love IV and due in March. The first single, “Slow It Down,” will premiere on Valentine’s Day.

The delay is due to his work on Beyoncé’s new album. While he’s been forthcoming with details in the past, he wouldn’t say much about the record. “I’ve been told to zip it,” he said.

However, he did reveal that he will be heading to Paris to work on Kanye West’s next album in the weeks ahead.
