R&B singer The-Dream has made a big contribution to the music world, or at least he thinks so. In a recent interview with BET.com, the “Rockin That Thang” singer says he’s personally rejuvenated R&B. He states, quote,
“I’m at my peak as far as what The-Dream the artist is as an R&B artist. Yeah, because in some particular type of way I’ve changed the sound or made it…I made R&B somewhat cool again.”
The-Dream says he doesn’t deserve all the credit, but likes to believe that he had something to do with R&B getting a lot more play on radio. He adds, quote,
“I had a lot of influence to do with how R&B songs sound now versus when hip-hop was still dominating at the end of 2006.”
The-Dream will be dropping his third album, “Love King,” later this year, but says he is also eyeing work with Ciara and Kanye West. He remarks, quote, “I’d rather see someone else be the victor other than just me, which is why I’d rather write songs and win a Grammy with somebody else or with Beyonce rather than just really see myself win one and just have myself to appreciate so I really love to share the rock.” The-Dream’s “Love King” is expected in stores on May 18th.
