On Friday, The-Dream stopped by the EZ Street Show to discuss his new album, LOVE vs. MONEY, that comes out March 10th. Once he was done with EZ, he sat down with me and answered the questions you submitted to me via Facebook and email.
For those of you that don’t know about The-Dream, let me school you for a moment. The-Dream is much more than a singer. He’s also an award-nominated songwriter as well, having penned hits like ‘Umbrella’ for Rihanna, ‘Just Fine’ for Mary J., and a little ditty known as ‘Single Ladies’ for Beyonce/Sasha Fierce.
EZSTREETSHOW.COM: Where do you get the inspiration for your songs?
THE-DREAM: It changed over the years. I’ve been in bands since I was a kid, so I always loved music. I used to just make music to make music. Once I hit my 20’s, and had bills to pay, that’s where the inspiration came from.
EZSTREETSHOW.COM: What type of girl do you go for?
THE-DREAM: I need a businesswoman, a woman that can take care of me. I’ve been taking care of women since I was 14. It’s about time for a woman to take care of me, buy me some Louis for a change.
