The-Dream Records a Sam Cooke Covers Album for His Late Mother, and It’s Just As Great As You’d Think


The-Dream announced his latest project on Twitter and Instagram, a Sam Cooke cover album dedicated to his mother, entitled IAMSAM. The caption read:

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. These songs were originally recording during the making of @beyonce 's 4 album in 2010 w my good Friend Pat Thrall. My mother passed on the 23rd day of December in 1992."

The album includes some real heartbreaking Sam Cooke hits like "A Change Is Gonna Come" and "Bring It on Home." Honestly, the whole thing is pretty great. If we had to guess, we'd say Sam Cooke would enjoy it, as would The-Dream's mom.
