walkin on the moon

i’ve seen the-dream‘s name pop up a few times lately, so figured i’d check him out. i think he’s the only person who could honestly be described as the new r. kelly. his vocals are smooth, perfectly complemented by a series of blocked up synths. he’s a singer, but not one that thugs can’t relate to (like i know anything about thugs)… on fancy he sings that the object of his affection is “in paris seducing me” while a parisian accordian dances underneath this celebration of “the dream of a billion men.” cheesy but fun you know. and it’s funny that later on he sings about “doing it to kelly’s 12 play…”

check out the latest mix from the rub‘s dj ayres, which features the-dream amidst some of the best music of the first half of this year.
