New Music: The-Dream x Jay-Z “High Art”

the-dream-jay-z-high-art

It’s been years in the making, but The-Dream and Hov hook up for their first collaboration. High art creates higher expectations. IV Play drops May 28th.

    I don’t like dream as an artist. I like him when kanye uses him sparingly on songs i.e. watch the throne,cruel summer as an additional voice

    ^ me too

  • koa29

    98% of the people who listened to this fast forwarded to HOV’s verse. Fact.

    saw the track and was stoked. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with both on this one. Seems like a throwaway song completely as both are capable of so much more.

  • The Fuck

    OHHH MAN!!! YOU’RE GETTING BORING WITH YOUR TRIANGLE SHIT!!! TRY SOMETHING NEW!!! WE KNOW YOU’RE USING THIS ILLUMINATI BS JUST FOR PROMO, JUST TO STAY IN ERRRBODYS MOUTH LIKE PENISES!!! YOU AIN’T NO ILLUMINATUS, YOU’RE GAAAY NIGGERRR!!!

  • The Facade

    Jays verse was pretty cool but the rest of the song (production included) seems pretty recycled

  • sealey

    Wack

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    It feels like Jeezy should be on the track. But the beat is nice.

  • quese

    Actually no church n da wild was the first u guys gotta do your research man

  • B

    shit is weak as fuck. hov your verse was nice, actually the only nice thing about this song, but you should be ashamed to co-sign this bullshit. #disappointing. hov dont let ‘the self-proclaimed dream’ get credibility off the brand you built. hopefully, hov charged the fuck outta him

  • michelle michelle

    The Dream should stick to writing, Jay’s verse is cool tho

  • Dashing

    Yeah, this isn’t their first collaboration, unless you specify on a track by The Dream. Cause “No Church in the Wild” and that “Shiny Suit Theory” with Jay Elect.

  • B.Dot

    ^
    Yeah, but that don’t REALLY count.

  • @worldfamous_kev

    Sounds like just about everything else on the radio, but it’s not bad

  • Emass

    Haters gon Hate! Dope!!

  • LikeJordan45

    I’m a big Dream fan and this is trash, same applies to Hov on both accounts. I had higher expectations also.

  • Ramel

    Wack

  • End

    lmao @ “that don’t REALLY count”

    Why, because you were wrong?

    • B.Dot

      No, because those were background vocals. Not a full fledged feature

  • It’s the roc

    This was underwhelming

  • End

    Not on Shiny Suit Theory.

    Not REALLY FEELING THIS!!!!

    Kinda just “there” isn’t it. Can’t co-sign those that are saying it’s wack, however,my expectations were high and they failed to deliver.

  • Frankie Vado

    And no one else thinks Hov is rapping EXACTLY like 2 chainz???

  • the brain trust

    We listening to the same song? Great production (with an intriguing breakdown towards the tail end), infectious hook, fun/light hearted concept.

    The only thing underwhelming was Jay’s verse.

    Iono, this is really dope to me.

  • Donn

    Why Jay sound like 2 Chainz???

  • Push For Life

    This is proof I can’t get into the Dream he has my fav rapper on the track,and I still don’t like it

  • Leanin’

    Thats NOT 2Chainz Flow! If u Really did ur Homework u would know that’s PIMP-C’s FLOW! Get it Right! R.I.PimpC

  • COOL..

    THEM NIGGAS RICH, REAL HIPHOP>>> http://youtu.be/N7blWPL-WYo

  • B

    @ the brain trust

    to each is own my man. at least you stepped up though all the negative comments and said you liked it. respectable. way to keep it 100

  • Chronic

    Wow, I like some of the dreams songs but this was horrible. And jays verse was kinda mediocre.

  • http://hiphopvancouver.com realtalk82

    Yeah im not feeling this at all. Jay-Z is so boring these days I still think his best verse lately was Bitch dont kill my Vibe remix and Dreams best record was Dope Bitch. IV play was okay but this here is just not good music IMO. I like both these artist and have for years, I just was expecting better quality records.

  • Roger Kamien

    Dream really used that Chicago drill rap flow in his verse

  • asmodeus ashmadi

    Hov did this song no justice im disappointed in both these niggas. And why if niggas don’t smoke sniff or pop pills they think its cool to act like it dam! SMFH! I agree with@realtalk82.

  • Nickey Black

    I can’t front. I don’t like this song.

    I really expected more.

    especially featuring Jayz

  • The Wise

    I was a lil iffy about dreams newer music but this shitss is purrre doppppe!! An hov actually came wit a flow i can listen too

  • Cemal

    Errrrrbody GTFOH.. This is fucking fire.
    I GET MAKE LOVE TO MY GIRL I GET HIGH WITH MY NIGGAS

  • philly’sbestkept secret

    i guess if u keep shooting u might hit something but this is a miss jay z verse same boring as convesation dream and auto tune so innovative. I can believe these companies keep investing in these artist give it up its over. If u like this its because u haven’t had a taste of some good shit since the 90’s.

    It’s so catchy. I can’t stop hitting the replay button lol

  • Chris

    Wow The Dream jock Paris Jones and High Art more!

  • GAME

    how can i critque jay z without sounding bitter? Jay is my all time favorite BUT either hip hop don’t hit me like it used to or jay’s lyrics are extremely bland. (Didn’t even listen to the Dream at all…I fast forwarded straight to Hov)

    I like it. The-Dream is a studio nerd with an ear for infectious hooks. Like it or not, you’ll catch that chorus ringing in your ears afterwards.

    Song-writing-wise, it’s not his best work. And no, his voice is not impressive (he actually needs that auto-tune). Hov’s verse was weak. But it’s good drive-around-the-city music.

    I do hope the rest of IV Play has more engaging tracks than this one.

  • CORY

    this beat needs a chord progression; it lacks emotion. the drums sound dope, the synths sound dope, but they’re just playing lame ass riffs. WHERE THE CHORDS AT???

    and idk dream’s 2nd verse kiiiiiiinda reminded me of future…..so did the “turn up!” adlibs in the chorus

    jay-z forgot how to create a genuine and original flow. most all the rhythms in his verse were reminiscent of chief keef, rick ross, 2 chainz, etc.

  • http://www.imtiredofdefendingthisnigga.com Wo

    Hovs my favorite rapper and I ain’t hear nothing catchy from the bull since shiny suit theory …. You listen to shit from bull and be like nigga you think this is acceptable !!!

  • LIMB0

    a song for the lames. shawty this is shiit (dream voice)

  • J Whistles

    Strip club music? I could see getting a lap dance to this. Other than that its not good.

    And i hope the triangle shit stands for something im not aware of and not another Illuminati reference. Your Jay-Z, you dont need a gimmick, people know who you are. Give the triangle shit a rest.
