If you’re going to date/marry The-Dream, make sure it works out because you don’t want him writing a song about you.
Last week The-Dream (a.k.a. Terius Nash) released a free album called 1977, and on it he gets pretty candid on his failed marriage with Christina Milian. He goes ‘in’ on the song, “Used to Be”, which opens with the line ‘You say I’m f*cked up, Well you might just be f*cked up to’. He continues,
You used to strip for a ni**a
Now you ain’t got nothing but lip for a ni**a
Halfway decent for me, but you dress up for your girlfriends?
Listening to what they say got your ass without a husband
Put you in a Benz, you did everything to get me
Ain’t did nothing since but keep talking about what it should be
Car note, daycare, paid all the f**king rent
Know you wanna run the world
But first, try running this
This track reminds me of a stripped-down version of R. Kelly’s “When a Woman’s Fed Up,” but this time it’s the man who’s fed up, and he’s taking no mercy. The fellas are definitely going to love this one, women…maybe not so much.
