For all fans of The-Dream – myself included – Terius’ new album, Fourplay, is set to drop May 7, 2013. The first peak into the project features a familiar collaborator, Fabolous, for the first single “Slow It Down.” I’m just going to be honest with you, too. Seeing “featuring Fabolous” initially gave me the Heebie-jeebies.* Not because I despise Loso, but rather because Fab hasn’t really given much of a reason to anticipate anything new from his camp since the first Soul Tape.
Nonetheless, the record isn’t “Shawty Is A 10,” but “Slow…” is a head-nodding number nonetheless. What’s funny, though, and it may be just me, but hearing Jay over this would be interesting.** By now, with February halfway over, it’s about time to start looking forward to those songs which should pick up steam come spring. I’ve already called that French and Nicki record as one. Give me a few more listens with this.
Despite everything, it’s just good to hear new material from The-Dream. Wait until the weather warms up. He’ll hit us with the knockout punch then.
The-Dream Ft. Fabolous – “Slow It Down”
* – I can’t believe I just said Heebie-jeebies.
** – Only if he made a swap-meet reference though.
