On Monday, R&B singer-songwriter The-Dream chatted with MTV News about his and wife Christina Milian's forthcoming baby, and also about his new album and videos.
"The baby will be here Sunday, no later than Sunday!" The-Dream (real name: Terius Nash) said excitedly. "The baby already has a car, I got a house just for the baby — Christina can't get in the baby's car. I'm giving all my attention that I usually give to Christina to the baby, all the flowers I usually give Christina, I'm giving them to the baby.
"It's a girl, Violet will be her first name," he revealed. "I'm not telling you the middle name, you gon' get me in trouble." Still, with all the excitement a new couple experiences with their first child, Dream said it's business as usual in the Nash household.
"I've been working like a regular person works in America. They have jobs whether someone's pregnant or not," he laughed.
The singer says he's finished recording his upcoming album, Love King, (the title track of which recently leaked), and said the song isn't about being a ladies man, like many believe.
"On 'Love King,' I'm talking about those girls that like my music and how they're everywhere," he said. "They're the girls in church, girls in the club, in Miami — my music's everywhere. I don't mean that I have girls everywhere; it's not literal, but women do gravitate to my songs."
The-Dream is currently preparing to shoot two clips for his single, the original version featuring Def Jam labelmate Young Jeezy followed by a remix with Ludacris.
"We're shooting the videos in two weeks," he said. "The remix to 'Love King' with Ludacris which is crazy, it sounds like a '90s Jodeci remix, with their type of big harmonies on the hook. You'll get what I'm saying when you hear it. It's the swing."
