The Dream : Slow It Down ft. Fabolous


Having co-written such worldwide pop megahits as Rihanna’s “Umbrella”, Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” and (ahem) Justin Bieber’s “Baby”, Terius Nash – AKA The-Dream – probably has enough money to ensure he never needs to work another day in his life, and the fact that he keeps cranking out album after album of his own astonishingly accomplished futuristic R&B to comparitively little commercial success suggests that creativity and artistic expression – rather than wealth and fame – are what motivates him. On Valentine’s Day Nash premiered “Slow It Down” the first single from May’s Fourplay – the official follow-up to the “Love” trilogy that came to a close with 2010’s Love King – and revealed that the reason the record has been delayed so many times over the past year or is because he’s been working in secret on Beyonce’s new LP. Plenty to look forward to in the coming months then, but for now here’s the typically hook-heavy (and potty-mouthed), Fabolous-featuring single.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
