The-Dream Has Slept With a Lot of Women, Says The-Dream

The thing about making things seem effortless is that then people assume they’re easy. Take The-Dream: the guy’s so good he can just toss off all-decade stuff like “Umbrella” and “Single Ladies” and still have enough juice for two albums worth of peerless, precision calibrated radio R&B. So where are his Grammy noms, magazine covers, and public shrines, huh? Anyway, his new single, “Love King” — the title track to his upcoming album, due May 17th — is here, and it does not disappoint. Yes, another song about the remarkably-active sexual proclivities of its singer but, in typical Dream style, one that's streamlined, preternaturally smooth, genuinely sweet, and laced with just enough bang to make it more than alright to blast out of a car stereo. We’ve got one more chance to show our appreciation: The-Dream is promising that Love King is his last.
