The-Dream's next project, IV Play, will feature a number of high-profile acts, who the singer explains all have something in common.
"If you notice what I do, I kinda try to keep it in the same loop of things," explained Dream on BET's "106 & Park." "I don't bow down to the pressure of what people want you to do, or get the next person that's hot."
"If they're on my album, it's because I believe in them, and I have a certain type of love for them," he added. "You won't find somebody on my album that I'm not good with."
"We had to make sure we know what clique we represent," he said.
The-Dream recently dropped the Parental Advisory mixtape.
