It appears that singer/producer The-Dream’s upcoming album now boasts a new title. While speaking with Billboard.com on the night of the Grammy’s, The-Dream revealed that instead of The Love IV, his album will now be titled Fourplay.
“May 7th, my album drops and the name is Fourplay,” The-Dream revealed.
Fans can also expect the Fourplay-crafter to release the album’s first single this Thursday, Valentine’s Day.
During The Grammys, The-Dream also unknowingly became one of the most talked about artists of the night thanks to his choice in clothing. While accepting the award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “No Church In The Wild” the singer was poked fun of by Jay-Z who commented on the “swap meet” quality of The-Dream’s hat.
The singer-songwriter went on to reveal that he and Jay-Z tend to joke around and shared that even Beyonce wanted his “swap-meet” hats.
“[Jay-Z] was just digging on me, we do that. B had just said, she wanted both of these hats,” said The-Dream.
