Yesterday Monday (October 8), it was announced that Def Jam Recording artist, songwriter and producer The Dream was appointed Vice President of A&R. The platinum-selling hit maker will be responsible for overseeing the label’s upcoming projects as well as searching for new talents. He will also continue to produce for artists who are currently signed to Def Jam Recording and its affiliates. He is currently working side-by-side with Pusha T and Rihanna on their new albums. If that is not enough, The Dream’s Radio Killa Records will be marketed and distributed through Def Jam Recording.
“I am committed as I have been previously to bringing the power of belief in the artist back to the forefront. I share a unique view of an artist and as well as the business of music. I, with the help of many others, have ran a successful business for the last five years in the midst of the ‘Digital Change.’ My concentration and effort will be to the artist to succeed in their dreams and goals,” said The Dream.
“I’ve been a part of watching and participating in the success of many great women and men including Beyonce, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion to name a few,” The-Dream continued. “Music means more than just a download, it’s life to the culture and also the people who listen. This is a new exciting yet critical time for music – ‘You Meet Change with Change!’”
