The Dream’s “Wake Me When It’s Over” R&B music video is out and it isn’t exactly what you’d call chipper.
Released as the first single off of Dream’s digital-only EP 1977, set to release Dec. 18, the song speaks about a failing relationship and all the signs that indicated it would eventually be over. The music video chronicles different stages of the relationship and shifts back and forth between the girl he’s no longer with yelling at him and him leaning against a wall talking about where things went wrong.
The female lead shows up at his apartment unannounced yelling at him more after he finally leaves. Indicating that she just can’t let go, even if the R&B singer isn’t interested anymore. The two are shown moving on with their lives, but the end of the video gives some indication on how this poisonous relationship cycle starts and stops continuously.
Signs indicate that The-Dream will be sleeping for a long time because this relationship seems to be far from over.
