The-Dream has written countless hits for some of the biggest artists in music including Rihanna’s “Umbrella,” Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It),” and Justin Bieber’s “Baby” and that’s not even talking about the tracks he wrote for himself.
Now he’s turning those opportunities into a brand new bag.

In making this decision I said to Merck, ‘I need a Jimmy Iovine in my life,’ not just to nurture my songs but to also help solidify the legacy I seek for myself and my songs even after I’m gone, for my children and beyond. His reply was simply ‘I Got it!, and after [that] came action like the one you see playing out today in real time.”
