Melt in Your Ears: *New Video* The Dream feat. T.I – Make Up Bag + LoveKing trackListing

Earlier this week, TheDream dropped his video for his second official single, MakeUp Bag featuring Rapper T.I. Def Jam decided to go with Make Up Bag instead of F.I.L.A also featuring T.I that we featured not too long ago. I am still on the fence about this song and video that features T.I, and actor Jason Weaver and model Selita Ebanks. Little X directed the video which tries to add some class and a storyline to the song. Upon the first few listens, I cannot see what the Label sees in this record. The lyrics sound clunky with the beat and although T.I’s rhymes fit the song well, I’m not seeing the big ‘Single’ potential. But this could be similar to Dream’s I Love Your Girl record, which I did not like at first, but grew on me immensely. You be the judge!

The Dream recently announced that this will definitely be his last album and he will no longer be making music as a solo artist. This is something we have heard before. I think Dream is getting a lot of negativity this time around and it’s getting to him. I must say, I haven’t heard much from this project that has blown me away, but I know I expect a lot more from the album itself. Below is the official tracklist for LoveKing.

Still In tha W(Rapper): TheDream & T.I’s new Single – F.I.L.A

TheDream and T.I team up for the next single, F.I.L.A from Dream’s LoveKing project. F.I.L.A stands for Fall In Love Again, as the song describes a situation where a woman leaves her man for the next one, wanting to feel loved again. The track was produced by Dream & Tricky Stewart and again sounds similar to his other Singles, but like most of his music, I am feeling this one!

There is some confusion as to who this song belongs to, either T.I’s Mixtape, F*ck A Mixtape or Dream’s current project but I’m thinking its Dream’s. Take a listen below, are you feelin it?

Sweet Tooth: *New Video* TheDream – LoveKing

Earlier today TheDream attended 106& Park studios in New York to premiere the new video for his first Single from his LoveKing album, also called LoveKing. Well-known director X aka Little X directed the video with choreography either by Jamaica or Tanisha Scott (my guess). The video is set against a bright orange background as Dream acts as the center of attention. To coincide with the song’s lyrics, multiple types of women appear seductively from behind Dream. Dream actually busts a couple dance moves himself at the 1:35 mark…somebody’s been practicing!

The video is bright and fun, with some booty-popping dance moves and beautiful women. Yes, this is a typical Dream video. I am left a little unsatisfied with the video, even though I can’t get enough of the song.

Dream’s next Single will be Sex Intelligent featuring T.I. On 106&Park, Dream assured fans he would be releasing more singles and videos this time around and that he has already filmed a few videos already. Since this is Dream’s rumoured last album, I hope he releases some singles that showcase his real songwriting talent.

Music News ROLO: TheDream readies LoveKing Album & Video via Twitter

I’ve been meaning to do this post for a minute. If you follow TheDream like I do on Twitter, you pretty much get the scoop on all of the promotion for his latest album LoveKing. He’s already shot the video for the first single, LoveKing with Director X, who we haven’t seen do much in a while… The video looks hot! Watch the preview below.

A few days ago, Dream did a live Ustream of the filming of another of his videos. The song sounds great, but I guess it was accidentally leaked because the cameraman got scolded by a label rep for streaming live video of music that has not been released yet…Oops! She then tells him to mute the sound which is pretty pointless. Luckily, the video is still up if you want to check it out.

According to his Twitter, Dream will be releasing four singles and four videos before the album drop in May. He will record the Love King Remix video featuring Ludacris April 1st.  Other possible cameos on the album include T.I and Young Jeezy. Get it Dream!!
