The-Dream is ready to take his Crown. The Radio Killa has announced an April 14 release date for his new EP.
He has reunited with production partner Tricky Stewart on the project, which has spawned the singles “Fruition” and “That’s My Shit” featuring T.I.
Crown will be followed by The-Dream’s Jewel EP, coming together for one album with two different perspectives.
“Crown is more modern R&B, and Jewel will be more what you might think of as my songwriter side, the songs I might have given to other artists before,” said The-Dream. “If you put me in a box, Jewel is more what you get when that box is open. But I’m not limited by any box I’ve been put in—every year I’m expanding and growing, and it makes for a more interesting plot.”
Crown/Jewel marks The-Dream’s first album since leaving Def Jam and launching his own label Contra Paris in conjunction with Capitol Records.
