The-Dream Drops Sam Cooke Covers Album 'IAMSAM'

  /  12.22.2015

The-Dream has a surprise for his fans this Christmas. Out of nowhere, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter has released an album of Sam Cooke covers called IAMSAM. The project, which was recorded during Beyoncé’s 4 album sessions in 2010, was inspired by his late mother, who passed away 23 years ago.

“My Mother loved a lot of Artist growing up, but the one we shared the most interest in together was Sam Cooke, so Tonight I give him back to her,” said Dream. “These songs were originally recording during the making of @beyonce’s 4 album in 2010. My mother passed on the 23rd day of December in 1992.”

The soulful eight-song set includes covers of Cooke classics like “A Change Is Gonna Come,” “Twistin’ the Night Away,” “Cupid,” and “You Send Me.”
