Last month, The-Dream sat down with Rob Markman at Genius for their inaugural Genius Level interview. For an hour straight, Terius reflected on his role in the creation of a ridiculous amount of hits throughout his 15+ years in the game.
During the interview, The-Dream would speak on the profound effect his mother’s passing would have on him. He broke down his involvement in countless hits and revealed he penned Beyoncé‘s “Single Ladies” in a mere 17 minutes. He also spoke on his relationship (or lack of) with Drake and why they haven’t worked together since “Shut It Down” on Thank Me Later in 2010.
According to The-Dream, a follow-up collaboration never happened because Drake gave him the cold shoulder.
“I asked him to get on a record,” The-Dream says. “But he never got on a record. Now, I’m only gonna ask you once. Especially if I’ve already done something for you. So that’s the end of the Drake and Dream era of a record.”
