According to TMZ, Milian is attempting to renegotiate the settlement with demands for more money and a larger percentage of the "Baby" publishing rights. As a result, The-Dream is threatening to cancel the agreement altogether. This may not be possible, since documents are on file in Georgia detailing the estranged couple's settlement.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
