The-Dream may be one of the most successful pop music writers of our generation (Beiber, Rihanna and Beyoncé have him to thank for “Baby,” “Umbrella” and “Single Ladies”), but now he seems to want to take his own music in a angrier, almost trap direction. “Tron” falls way on the hip-hop side of things as well, despite its “R&B” soundcloud tag, seeing The-Dream chop and screw his own vocals over a hard-hitting beat.

This is off his forthcoming excellently titled IV Play album, due out May 7 on Def Jam.
