New Music: Ty Dolla $ign feat. Lil Wayne & The-Dream – Love U Better


As promised, Ty Dolla $ign unleashes the first single off his forthcoming Beach House 3 album.

Teaming up with Lil Wayne and The-Dream for the catchy “Love U Better,” the trio get in love mode. The DJ Mustard and Twice as Nice-produced track borrows from Mary J. Blige’s classic song “I Can Love You” off her 1997 album Share My World.

Dream kicks off the song singing: “Girl, you should know that I can love you better than he can.” And Ty tells us how he will drop game on your girl.

“Pull up on your girl with my roof gone / I’ma pull up on your girl with my jewels on,” sings Ty$. “Pull up on your girl with that heat on / And she ain’t know if it’s a Dolla or a Dream song.”

Lil Wayne comes in midway with an auto-tune laced verse. “Pull up on her in an Uber,” he raps. “That’s how I maneuver / Turn this D into a D plus and I’m her tutor / Turn a B into a D cup, hallelujah!”

Beach House 3 will be Ty’s sophomore album, but it will actually be the fourth release in his ‘Beach House‘ series. The first two projects in the series — 2012’s Beach House and 2013’s Beach House 2 — dropped as mixtapes. The third, Beach House EP, dropped in 2014. In 2015, the singer/songwriter released his debut album Free TC on Atlantic Records.

Take a listen to the infectious “Love U Better” below.

New Music: The-Dream feat. Fabolous – Summer Body


We all want to get-right for the summer. So, if Kanye’s ‘workout plan’ hasn’t begun working for you yet, let the hitmaker himself–The Dream, advance your snap back.

The ATL singer/songwriter connects with Brooklyn’s own Fabolous for the catchy new collaboration, “Summer Body,” which is ready for summer ’17 pool parties.

On the new anthem, Dream sings about his preference for a 26-year-old “with a fat ass.” “You know just what to do / You know what I like / You know just how to be, you know I got a type,” he sings.

F.A.B.O. joins Dream rhyming about a goal-oriented girl who likes to have fun. “She put in work for it, she get to twerk for it / She had to grind for it, she get to wine for it,” he raps. “She accomplish anything she put her mind toward / She a dime that you ain’t have to pay a dime for it.”

The-Dream is currently prepping for the release of his next project, which is expected out soon.

The-Dream Reveals Why He Hasn’t Worked With Drake Since “Shut It Down”

The-Dream Drake Genius Level

In 2010, The-Dream collaborated with Drake on the track “Shut It Down” off the rap star’s debut album Thank Me Later.

During a recent sit-down interview with Genius, Terius “The-Dream” Nash answered a fan submitted question about why the two haven’t worked together since.

“I remember when Drake was putting this record together. I was getting calls, after calls, after calls,” Dream said. “I’ma do the record, like I’m on tour, as soon as I get to a place, I’ma do it. Drake called like, ‘Yo this is how I want it to sound.’ I’m like, ‘Drake I’m going to do this record how I’m gonna do it. I’m going to give it back to you the same way you sent it with your verse’…The record came out great…”

Continuing, The-Dream explained why he and Drake may never work together again. “I asked him to get on a record, and he never got on the record. I’m only going to ask you once especially if I’ve already done something for you…so that’s the end of the Drake and Dream era of a record.”

Watch that clip and the full “Genius Level” interview below.

‘SOULQUARIUS’ Brings R&B Greats, Past & Present, to West Coast Fans!

When the flyer for the inaugural SOULQUARIUS Festival in Santa Ana, California dropped in late 2016, R&B lovers everywhere went crazy over the line-up of scheduled performers.  From throwback artists like Jon B. and DMX to current R&B tastemakers such as Ro James, Jhené Aiko, and BJ The Chicago Kid, there was no denying that this event was guaranteed to be a lituation.

Fear of getting rained out and continuous flooding from California’s big storm may have had most on edge but, that didn’t stop ticket holders from coming out in droves to get a taste of what their favorite performers have to offer. Of course, there were a few mishaps along the way (like any huge festival has during their opening year), but SOULQUARIUS — aside from its massive lineup — has plenty of reasons why it should be the R&B festival that you don’t want to miss from here on out.

Delivering a jammed packed mash-up of lovable R&B artists and a few of rap’s most influential, SOULQUARIUS made sure to leave festival enthusiasts with a need to get their coins up for next year.

The-Dream is feeling Blue.

Following the release of his late 2016 EP Love You To Death, the Radio Killa returns with a new song titled “Code Blue,” off the soundtrack to Fifty Shades Darker.

Over a somber electric guitar laced track, Dream takes listeners on a heartfelt ride for one of the film’s emotional scenes.

“The closer I get to you / The more I feel like crying / The farther I get from you / The more I feel like dying,” he sings on the opening. “This what I get for loving you / Code Blue / This is what I get for loving you,” he sings with a sad tone on the chorus.

The-Dream is definitely excited to hear his song in the film. “Can’t wait to see the ‘Code Blue’ Scene from Fifty Shades Darker Tonight,” he tweeted. “Who’s with me?”
