The-Dream Gets Frisky in 'IV Play' - Song Premiere

R&B singer playfully demands his sexual dues

April 8, 2013 5:10 PM ET

The-Dream's new song is called "IV Play," but the R&B singer actually wants none of it. "I could give a fuck about the foreplay, I want it now," he sings on the playful grinder. "I'm talking straight sex."

The smooth singer-producer (born Terius Nash) may be quite blunt with his lady, but he also knows how to talk sweetly from his heart. "I don't want to lose a second with you," he croons. "Baby, you make me feel alive." He may demand instant sexual attention but, really, he'll still take his time.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
