SoundOff TV: The Dream talks “Fancy”………March 9th, 2009
EXCLUSIVE: : A news story at first released to or reported by only one source! If you know me or know of me, then this post shouldn’t be a surprise to you. See, I illegally (sorry Dream, I’ll cop my copy on the 10th) downloaded The Dream’s album, “Love Vs. Money” last week and fell in LOVE with the track “Fancy”.
Now of course, whenever I have an insane infatuation for a certain tune, I spread the gem as if I recorded the song myself. And in this case, “Fancy” is that track. If you’re up on the phenomenon that is Twitter (you can follow me HERE!), you’re probably familiar with my consistent chatter about the infectious ballad.
Lucky for me, The Dream just HAPPENED to be across the street filming for 106 & Park, which meant I had the opportunity to get the logistics behind “Fancy”. During the first interview, The Dream explained the concept behind the track, among other things (working with Kanye, how he views “Love Vs. Money” and his thoughts on Johnta Austin, Usher and B.Cox’s comments towards C. Milian), but I still wasn’t happy. I needed and wanted the CORE of why that song was created.
So, while I was interviewing Electrik Red, the big homey bum rushed their segment. After the E. Red interview, I probed him about the creation of the record and he began to go into specific detail.
I thought, “Wait, this will be great footage for SoundOff TV”. I asked him to hold up, step outside cause I needed this on camera. He happily agreed. Interested in what he had to say? OF COURSE YOU ARE! See below and ENJOY!
