The-Dream recently unveiled the cover art and tracklisting for ‘Crown’, which is due out on Tuesday (April 14). The release includes latest single ‘That’s My Shit’.
Speaking in January, The-Dream explained how ‘Crown’ and ‘Jewel’ will show a different side to him as an artist: “‘Crown’ is more modern R&B, and ‘Jewel’ will be more what you might think of as my songwriter side, the songs I might have given to other artists before,” he said. “If you put me in a box, Jewel is more what you get when that box is open. But I’m not limited by any box I’ve been put in – every year I’m expanding and growing, and it makes for a more interesting plot.”
The ‘Crown’ tracklisting is:
‘That’s My Shit’ (featuring TI)
‘All I Need’
‘Throw It Back’
