On the heels of his pool-floaty and barbecue “ROC” video, The-Dream collaborates with Radio Killa Records signee (and Will Smith’s niece) Casha on this new, plodding after-midnight ballad, “Kill the Lights.” “I haven’t heard something like [Casha] in a minute, so I’m really looking forward to watching her do her thing,” The-Dream told Billboard. In the same interview, he revealed that he’s changed the title of his fourth LP to Love IV MMXII (abridged from the working title Love IV: Diary of a Madman), and is working with Pusha T on eight songs for the rapper’s solo debut. The long-delayed Love IV MMXII, is now expected to be released by Memorial Day.
“Kill the Lights” is also the name of The-Dream’s month-long American tour, hitting the Northeast, SXSW and the South in March. Check out dates here.
