There are new beginnings in 2014 for singer-songwriter and all around music jack-of-all-trades The Dream. He announced yesterday via Instagram that he was ending his six year partnership with Def Jam Records.
In his Instagram message, The Dream posted a photo of Def Jam’s logo with the caption, “I will miss this logo. It all started here! Love Everything that I achieved there, EXODUS THE-DREAM #exodusthedream.”
The Dream has come a long way with the record company. He released five successful album since 2007, wrote some of Rihanna’s biggest hits including “Umbrella,” and became President of A&R in 2012. As A&R President, The Dream helped guide the albums of Rihanna, Mariah Carey, and Justin Bieber.
A reason for the split wasn’t given. However, people have begun speculating that Terius Nash will be starting his own label. Nothing has been confirmed or denied so we have to wait and see what The Dream has up his sleeve.
