THE DREAM said, "It's a great day. I feel we have unified the family overall and we all have a concrete goal in mind, which is making great music. None of this is possible without a dream, and as big as my dreams are, no dream is possible without GOD. I'd like to thank big JON for showing up as a Lord as well as my team--MARK STEWART, CHAKA PILGRIM, and MERCK "MM" MERCURIADIS. I would also like to thank the millions of fans that take me into their hearts and homes, whether it's my personal music as THE-DREAM, or through my catalog filled with family and friends. I thank BEYONCE and JAY for being family, trusting my thoughts beyond just the words and allowing my impact on their presence. And to RIHANNA for trusting me to be me and be the glue that held albums together. Thank you to RYAN PRESS who believes in me and also my entire WARNER/CHAPPELL family. La Famila."
Pres/NORTH AMERICA WARNER CHAPPELL MUSIC JON PLATT added, "THE-DREAM has written some of modern pop's most influential hits and is responsible for career defining collaborations with one superstar after another. He's that rarity in our business--a genuine triple threat--a brilliant songwriter, an ace producer, and a compelling artist in his own right. We are happy to continue working with such a gifted and prolific talent and we look forward to the next chapter in his career."
THE-DREAMS work has been honored with top industry accolades including THE GRAMMYS for Song of the year, ("UMBRELLA" and "SINGLE LADIES", Best Rap Song (KANYE WEST's "ALL OF THE LIGHTS", and JAY Z's "HOLY GRAIL"), among many others.
