The Dream: Writing Songs For Women Easier Than Men?

With an arsenal of hits including "Single Ladies," "Umbrella" and "Just Fine," The Dream has been a go to producer and writer for years, but why is he at his best when working with a female artist?

The Dream answered that question and a few others in a recent interview with VLADTV, talking about hits produced with Beyonce, Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige.

"Writing from that aspect isn't hard at all. I'm very much a man's man when it comes to anything, but that's just a gift I have. It's not something I constantly think about — how to relate. It's just a gift… It's probably harder to write a male song," said The Dream.
