So…The Dream dropped a new EP titled Crown last week. The EP has 6 songs and 1 feature from T.I. Now I can’t say there’s an album by The Dream that I can listen to without skipping tracks, he is hit or miss with me. The Dream is known for his club bangers and summer anthems, I Luv Your Girl, Shwaty Is Da Sh*t, and Turnt just to name a few. This EP doesn’t really have club bangers on it, but I do like most of what I heard on this EP.
Of the six tracks on the album my favorites are: Prime, That’s My Sh*t, Fruition, and Throw It Back. On Prime The Dream sings about being in his prime musically and in his love life. The track has a slow mellow feel to it, and it was on repeat instantly the day the EP dropped. That’s My Sh*t, featuring T.I. is I Luv Your Girl for 2015. The Dream and TIP make a good duo on this track. Fruition, is a slow ballad where Terrius sings about finally finding that one woman, and not letting her go. He does his best to croon on this one, I like the song. Throwback It Back is self explanatory, and is twerk worthy.
Four out of six tracks isn’t bad for an EP, but as I stated The Dream is hit or miss with me. The EP is a solid effort and honestly the most I can take from Terrius, so I am good with just an EP from him. This offering cuts through all of the fat and filler a full album would bring us and gives us the meat, which I appreciate! If you are fan of The Dream you should enjoy the EP, and even if you’re not, you may find something that you like.
Final Rating 2.5/3
