Songwriter Terius Nash a.k.a. The-Dream has released new single "High Art", a track off his forthcoming fifth album "IV Play", due on May 28. The 35-year-old artist's trap-inspired track gets a boost from Roc Nation mogul Jay-Z who drops a verse in the bass-heavy, auto-tuned jam.
"High Art Just a F**kin Real Fun Energetic Summer Song!!!!!!!!!!! #iVPLAY #HIGHART," The-Dream tweeted on Thursday morning, May 9 to mark the debut of the bouncy collaboration. He declares on the hook, "I make love to my girl and I get high with my ni**as," as Hov gives a shout out to his wifey with "I'm back home to my BB."
And speaking of Mrs. Carter, "IV Play" got some superstar support from pop/R'n'B diva Beyonce Knowles, who sings on the track "Fire", as well as from the Grammy Award-winning Mary J. Blige who takes on the inspirational song "Divine". Queen Bey's Destiny's Child sister Kelly Rowland also helps out on the piano-driven, almost-break-up anthem "Where Have You Been" while hip-hop's top acts 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Pusha T, and Fabolous handle the other tracks.
"I worked my f*ckin' ass off on this album. Getting superstars to do your album while you're doing those superstars' albums, it's hard to get people to do things. Whether it's doing a last minute trip to Paris to do something with Beyonce or catch Jay as soon as he flies back in town...," The-Dream revealed about his latest project. "I'm the first artist in Atlanta to get Bey & Jay-Z on the same album, they've never appeared on another artist's studio album together before. That was me just paying my dues."
