Originally slated for last September, The-Dream confirms the release of Love IV MMXII in August via Twitter.
According to The-Dream, the album, formerly titled The Love IV: Diary of a Madman, “is the BEST Album I’ve made. I don’t care what the sales will be. I will do my best to Challenge your Taste And Knowledge.”
Though no track listing has been made public, The-Dream has already released two songs off the album: “Roc” and “Kill the Lights” feautring Casha.
This is The-Dream’s first album since 2010’s Love King, however, he released his mixtape, 1977, under his given name, Terius Nash last year.
In a cryptic rant only Twitter can produce, The-Dream states, “I will Leave no Holes in this Album Period, no room to be Hated only Adored or simply just say ‘you don’t fuck with me’ but what U won’t Say is Dream Album is Mediocre or Sucks,” he wrote. “I will Never Be your Star I’m to G and to Westside for that. I will never Sellout Arenas Because Since Love/Hate [The-Dream’s 2007 debut] I didn’t Sellout! And no matter how much you hate me you got to Respect that!”
