The-Dream Confirms Beyoncé Has New Music and Rihanna's Album Is Coming Soon
In a recent interview on Hot 97’s “Ebro In The Morning,” The-Dream talked about everything from releasing his triple album Ménage à Trois: Sextape Vol. 1, 2, 3., to R. Kelly, Kanye West, and new music from Beyoncé and Rihanna.
The artist spoke with host Ebro Darden for a candid interview about his thoughts about former collaborators and current events in music.
When asked about Rihanna’s highly-anticipated and long-awaited new album, who Dream is also working on, the artist confirmed the project would be completed soon.
“She’s cooking. She’s about done,” he says.
It’s been rumored and reported that the project would be reggae-inspired. Dream did not confirm the genre, but instead reiterated,”She’s about done. Super close.”
At one point in the interview, Ebro asks Dream about whether Beyoncé has reached out to him to collaborate, and he said, “She’s doing something.”
He added, “I actually haven’t talked to her about it,” he said. “I’ve talked to the team about it because it’s just being coordinated.” When speaking on the process of planning with her team, he said, “It’s a different life now. She has three kids.”
Rihanna and Beyoncé come up at the 24-minute mark.
Around the 6-minute mark, The-Dream starts talking about J. Cole, saying, “J. Cole just has a sensibility where he understands who he is. Most people don’t. So, it’s like trying to get somebody to live life parallel to yours.”
