It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Def Jam’s latest R&B signee, THE-DREAM. He’s the genius behind Rihanna’s #1 hit “Umbrella” (The-Dream wrote the track in under 12 minutes), and is married to R&B songstress Nivea (Animalistic baby!). His new single “Shawty Is A Ten” is currently blazing radio waves across the country and I can dig it!
