’13 Best R&B Albums #4: The-Dream IV Play

Written By: @TheBigHomie January 8, 2014 @ 3:35 PM EDT

Push Play.

Sex is great. But before busting it wide open, Terius Nash spreads a little IV Play on his fifth studio album. Produced and written entirely by the crooner himself, the record didn’t crush the charts, but its positioning is right on point.

The-Dream remains as nasty as he wants to be. He redefines horse back on “Equestrian” before diving into “Pussy” with Big Sean and Pusha T. With a few uptempo grooves (“Michael”, “Loving You/Crazy”) in rotation, Mr. Nash keeps his trademark falsettos on the favorite “Holy Love”.

Other worthy records come from the frequent collaborators Jay Z (“High Art”) and Beyonce (“Turnt”). Don’t be afraid—rewind and come again.—Big Homie
