The-Dream’s influence on modern day R&B cannot be more understated. His work was a precursor to the work of The Weeknd and Frank Ocean, and now the artist born Terius Nash, who’s penned such monster hits as “Baby,” by Justin Bieber, “Umbrella,” by Rihanna, and Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It),” is set to release his fifth studio album later this month.

The recently released “High Art,” featuring Jay-Z, is the latest offering from the new set, and by far the one that will see the most chart success. The-Dream isn’t trying to reconstruct the wheel here, instead he’s just pushing forward in making a song destined to soundtrack many late nights. “I make love to my girl, and I get high with my niggas,” he sings during the chorus, before finishing by commanding us to “turn up, burn up.” It’s musically and lyrically pretty basic, but when it comes to summer anthems, it’s very rarely rocket science.

IV Play is due 28 May 2013.
