This week there are not a heavy volume of new albums, but The Dream has donned himself the "king of modern music," if he is right, his album alone should be enough.
The Dream – IV (Def Jam) – Download
The Dream is a slick wordsmith that rocks over raw beats without being held in a fluffy love bubble. It was clear from the start that the approach for the album is like a rapper crafting a song rather than a typical R&B crooner. "IV Play is me jumping into the future and trying to leave the past behind. It's never been because I couldn't really jump ahead of the game," said The Dream.
IV Play runs fourteen tracks, but if you grab the deluxe version you get four bonus tracks. The biggest names in the game guest feature, from Beyonce, to 2 Chainz, Jay-Z, Kelly Rowland, and Fabolous, to the not so known, such as guitarist-singer-actor, Gary Clark Jr.
On the lead single, which shares the same name as the album, it is soaked with a flowery Synth, which gives the track a modern day feel, this bedroom banger will certainly have you going all night. The Dream offers a different perspective on "High Art"; he and Jay-z hit the street record with braggadocios brash lines on being ahead of the best.
