The-DreamAfter leaving his long time home at Def Jam Records earlier this year, The-Dream spontaneously released Royalty: The Prequel tonight, free of charge. The EP, compiled of seven affectionate tracks, signifies his first full-length release since the independent transition. With success in songwriting and producing as well his own solo career, The-Dream is most certainly still on top of his game in Royalty: The Prequel (not to mention that artwork is on-point!).
