Singer/song writer Terius “The-DREAM” Nash turns 38, and to pay homage for his birthday I decided to curate a playlist of some of my favorite songs by him.

I’m pretty sure everyone is well aware of how talented the man is with the pen, along with his partner Tricky Stewart have written some of the biggest pop and R&B songs of the past two decades, Beyonce’s “Singe Ladies,” Rihanna’s “Umbrella,” Justin Bieber’s “Baby” and many more for some of our favorite artist. He’s artist in his own right but he’s given other artist mega hits and some times you can only be left wondering what if he kept those big hits for him self would they still have the same success? But the good thing about that is, he has plenty of hits he penned for himself, so it’s kind of a win-win. To pay homage to the self proclaimed “Radio Killa,” my good friend Shannon suggested I wish him a happy Birthday (LOL) I told her lets do one better and curate a playlist of some of our favorite The-DREAM tracks, performed by the singer himself. ‘Happy BDay The-Dream playlist.’

Listen below and enjoy.
