Few artist's pens come close to The-Dream’s, who swiftly rose to the forefront of R&B following the release of his acclaimed debut album, Love Hate, in 2007. Over the past decade, the singer, songwriter and producer has had a hand in some of the biggest songs to grace the charts. In case we needed a refresher of his fingerprint on modern R&B, The-Dream recently faced off against Sean Garret in an Instagram Live Verzuz battle. 

His latest album, Sextape 4, was released on April 17. The project marks the final installment of his R&B series following 2018’s Ménage A Trois: Sextape Vol. 1, 2, 3

Ahead of the album’s release, The-Dream checked in with BET Digital and took us all on a nostalgic trip through his discography on the latest episode of 106&Park: Mic Check


The multi-hyphenate  answered some of his fans most pressing questions, including what it was like working with Beyoncé on her 2008 smash hit “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).” 

He also shared which artist is helping him get through self-quarantine, the one song that still makes him emotional, his thoughts on the current R&B landscape, the status of  “The Nikki Project” and more.
