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.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
