Singer-songwriter The-Dream has just been named Executive Vice President of A&R at Def Jam Records. In addition to fostering a successful solo career of his own, the Grammy Award-winner has worked closely with artists on the label such as: Kanye West, Big Sean, Ludacris, 2 Chainz, and Rick Ross. Currently, he’s been an integral part in Pusha T’s upcoming solo debut album, and is currently working with Rihanna on her seventh studio album.
The-Dream released this statement about his new position with Def Jam Records:
“I am committed as I have been previously to bringing the power of belief in the artist back to the forefront. I share a unique view of an artist and as well as the business of music. I, with the help of many others, have ran a successful business for the last five years in the midst of the “Digital Change.” My concentration and effort will be to the artist to succeed in their dreams and goals. I’ve been a part of watching and participating in the success of many great women and men including Beyonce, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion to name a few. Music means more than just a download, it’s life to the culture and also the people who listen. This is a new exciting yet critical time for music – ‘You Meet Change with Change!’.”
