Did You Hear?

:: Christina Milian and The-Dream are separating after less than a year of marriage. It probably had something to do with this photo. [Rap-Up]

Eminem Easily Fends Off The-Dream, 3OH!3 And Scissor Sisters On The Chart

Last week was a slow one for new releases, and the new Billboard Top 200 Albums chart reveals that Scissor Sisters, The-Dream and 3OH!3 did little to slow Eminem’s Recovery roll. Marshall Mathers’ latest moved another 313,000 copies, bringing its two-week total to 1.1 million. See how the rest of the album tally played out…

The-Dream Releases An Epic (And Boring) Music Video Trilogy

Epic videos are all the rage nowadays, and it appears The-Dream has taken it as his mission to outdo them all, releasing a three-song music video with a trio of tracks from his Love King album, which dropped yesterday. Unfortunately, clocking in at 13 minutes (!), Dream’s thee-song story is a chore to get through,…

The-Dream Brings His “Make Up Bag” Onto ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

The-Dream hit the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage last night to perform his cheatin’ song “Make Up Bag.” His partner in crime T.I. wasn’t along for the ride this time (so sadly, we’re deprived of the classy line “I can’t help the broads want me”), but Dream had four sleek backup dancers in tow, each with…

The-Dream Is Still Unlucky In Love In ‘Love King’ Track “Nikki Pt. 2″

The-Dream released a track called “Nikki” from his 2007 album Love Hate about his girl doing him wrong, but being able to move on once finding love with a woman with named Nikki. Apparently, things didn’t work out too well with Nikki, either, because for his upcoming Love King, Dream recorded a part two about…

The Morning Mix: Courtney Love Says Crazy Things, Sky Remains Blue

Did You Hear?

:: Courtney Love claims “I didn’t ask to be hated, I just don’t mind being a bitch.” Well, Courtney comes off as both a bitch and yet still lovable in her Behind the Music interview. (Warning: incredibly NSFW unless you want to wash your ears out with soap.) [PopEater]…

The-Dream Does His Best Prince Impression On New Track “Yamaha”

Is The-Dream’s new single “Yamaha” a Prince homage, or a complete Prince rip-off? We can’t tell, but there’s one thing we’re sure of: this song really sounds like Prince. And not new crazy Prince, either, but the early-80s sex machine’s synth-pop tunes. Listen below and judge for yourself.

The-Dream And T.I.’s “Make Up Bag”: The Solution For Getting Caught Cheating

Why is The-Dream getting cursed out by his lady, who has “nothing but panties on”? Because he’s been out till 2 a.m. Patronin’, and comes home with lipstick on his collar and Chanel No. 5 all on his shirt. What’s a player to do? Hello? Simply drop five stacks on a Hermes make up bag.

There’s A Girl For All Seasons In The-Dream’s “Love King” Remix Video

“These walls is real thin, so if these walls could talk, they’d say congratulations, mazel tov,” Ludacris raps (while saying l’chaim with a bottle of—of course—his own brand of cognac, Conjure) in the vid for The-Dream’s remix for “Love King.” Are these two trying to usurp The Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” as favorite hip-hop song…

The-Dream released the remix (no, not that remix, another remix) of the first single from his upcoming album, the title track “Love King.” This one features Ludacris rapping on the track, it’s better than both the original and the Young Jeezy remix. Listen below.

Ciara Returns With New Single “Ride”, But Gosh, We Can’t Tell What It’s About

After earning mixed-to-poor reviews for her unofficial single “Speechless”, Ciara is back with a proper track, and it’s a hot one. “Ride”, the “official” first track from her fourth album, isn’t going to win her any awards for subtlety (the hook is “He loves the way I ride it” — but it turns out she’…

Ciara And The-Dream Leave Us “Speechless”

We know Ciara can do no wrong in front of the cameras, but what about in the studio? The R&B singer teamed up with The-Dream for “Speechless,” a single from her forthcoming fourth album (which will, not surprisingly, include production from The-Dream and Tricky Stewart, who oversaw much of Ciara’s Fantasy Ride). Listen to the mid-tempo love song…

Drake And The-Dream “Shut It Down” In Latest Track

Drake and The-Dream teamed up for the sultry boudoir-hopping slow-jam “Shut It Down” from Drizzy’s upcoming debut album Thank Me Later, and we’ll have to thank him later (much later) or this sprawling, unexciting and somewhat offensive track. Listen to it below.

Christina Milian’s ‘I’m Sexy’ And ‘Welcome To Vegas’ Leak

A pair of tracks from Christina Milian’s forthcoming Elope album have leaked, both of which were produced by Tricky Stewart and Milian’s Twitter-ranting husband The-Dream.

The first song, “I’m Sexy,” channels Janet Jackson circa, oh, the past nine year or so. Particularly, it has shades of Janet’s “All Nite (Don’t Stop)” and…

‘Time’ Picks Its Top 10 Albums Of 2009

It’s been quite the high profile week for The-Dream. Not only did a wedding photo of the hit-making songwriter-producer and Christina Milian just surface, his Love vs. Money was also singled out in Time’s picks for the top albums of the year. Hopefully this calms him down after his recent Grammy snub.

Dirty…

Is The R. Kelly Tracklisting Floating Around The Internet For Real?

Because if this list of songs for his forthcoming untitled album (which is scheduled to hit stores on Sept. 29) is the real deal, I am already way too excited about Track No. 13 thanks to its title and its roster of guest stars. I mean, come on, doesn’t “Pregnant (feat. Tyrese, Robin Thicke, The-Dream

Kanye West’s New, Rihanna-Tastic Video Gets The Bootleg-DVD Treatment

Last night Island Def Jam, in a display of largesse that according to Vibe editor Danyel Smith felt “very 1999… in a good way,” held what it called a Spring Collection Preview, in which the label’s various upcoming releases got the fancy-party-with-canapés preview treatment for journalists and other industry wags. Among those releases was the…

The-Dream’s Search-Engine Optimization Is A 10

While music-business types were recovering from a week of drinking margaritas and arguing over how to better market themselves online at the South By Southwest festival, old-school Internet expert Anil Dash was discussing how The-Dream was using search-engine optimiation in order to make his name stick out among a host of search results for Susa…

Two-Hit Wonder Flo Rida Owns Charts, Reminds Us He Exists

Obviously, we need to talk about the new song that takes over the top of Billboard’s Hot 100, and the mind-blowing record it sets.
But before we do that, let’s talk about Hilary Swank.
I find Swank’s movie career totally incomprehensible: She either wins Oscars, or she tanks. Not even Meryl Streep has wo…
