The-Dream Gave Us ‘IAMSAM’, A Sam Cooke Covers Album For Christmas
The-Dream, your favorite R&B purveyor of slinky, sexy, booty jams, has lent his dulcet tones to this lovely little collection of Sam Cooke covers, which he quietly released on Soundcloud this afternoon. He announced the surprise on Instagram, via a very sweet post.
My Mother loved a lot of Artist growing up, but the one we shared the most interest in together was Sam Cooke, so Tonight I give him back to her. These songs were originally recording during the making of @beyonce ‘s 4 album in 2010 w my good Friend Pat Thrall. My mother passed on the 23rd day of December in 1992. https://soundcloud.com/the-dream/sets/iamsam
The songs were recorded in 2010, during his recording sessions for Beyonce’s wonderful album 4. Christmas music works best when it’s melancholy, because this holiday is nothing more than a time to think about what you need, what you want and what you could’ve had. Instead of crying to the same version of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” while drinking mulled wine in your pajamas, put this on instead.
