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.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
