B.E.T. You Haven’t Heard This: The Dream ft. Mariah CareyJanuary 9th, 2009
The Dream wrote Mariah’s first single, so she decided to sing on his…… I’m going to keep it real with you, I’m not sure how I feel about this one. While it’s always a HUGE achievement to have Mariah twirl around on your single, I somehow developed the feeling that this track was forced. You know how it goes; The Dream wrote her a smash hit, so it was only right she return the favor and give him an even better blessing.
The sound scape to the track is cool, although it sounds like a traditional Tricky beat, it still gets my nodgen knocking. As for the content, ehhhhh. The usual “BabyILoveYouAndImNotGoingAnywhereNoMatterWhatTheHatersSay” banter is secretly starting to turn my stomach, but hey, to each his own.
I’m praying this is the first “OFFICIAL” single from his sophomore Lp, Love Vs. Money, because this is about the 546546656th joint that’s leaked from the big homey. Hey Def Jam, I hope you have something HUGE planned for this guy.
Like it, Love it or Leave it??????
