Nash met R&B producer Laney Stewart in 2001, and after Nash wrote “Everything” for B2album K’s Pandemonium!, Stewart helped him get a publishing contract. Nash started composing songs for famous singers under the pen name “The-Dream.” Britney Spears’ hit “Me Against the Music” from her album In the Zone was co-written by him.
Nash signed a record deal with Def Jam Recordings in 2007 and started working on his first studio album, Love/Hate. The-Dream, his production partner Tricky Stewart, and Los Da Mystro recorded the song, which featured Fabolous and Rihanna. In just eight days, the album was composed and recorded, with twelve songs making the final cut.
The album was released on The-Def Dream’s Jam label Radio Killa Records on December 11, 2007, and featured the singles “Shawty Is a 10,” “Falsetto,” and “I Luv Your Girl.” It received mostly favourable reviews from reviewers, with Rolling Stone calling it “one of the most likable R&B records of the year” and UrbanMusicReviews.com saying that the singer had “hit a home run.”
The-Dream announced on the Love King track “Sex Intelligent (Remix)” that a follow-up album titled, “Love Affair” will be released on June 7, 2011. On the expected release date, The-Dream released a free download of a medley of two new songs named “Body Work / Fuck My Brains Out,” accompanied by a free download of the album 1977 on August 31, 2011.
1977 was released commercially on December 18, 2012 by Def Jam Recordings with a changed track list. The Love, IV, Love IV: Diary of a Madman, Love IV MMXII, and finally IV Play were all used as placeholders for Love Affair. The-Dream launched the singles “Roc” and “Dope Bitch” in the almost three years between Love King and IV Play.
The-Dream released his first free mix-tape, Royalty: The Prequel (EP), in the summer of 2014 to introduce his latest work to the public. The mix-tape had seven tracks in all, including the hit singles “Pimp C Lives” and “Outkast.” To further reveal his modern style of music and his forthcoming release, Crown Jewel, he performed “Fruition” and “That’s My Shit.” The album was broken into two EPs due to problems.
