Congrats To The Dream

11 Oct

Looks like The Dream won’t just be producing hit records.  He can now add Vice President to his resume.

Multi-talented producer and rapper The Dream, has produced tons of hits for stars like; Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige and Justin Bieber,so his new A&R gig seems like it is right up his alley.

Barry Weiss, who is the Chairman and CEO of Universal Republic and Island Def Jam Mot, and Karen Kwak, who is the Executive Vice President and Head of A&R at Island Def Jam Music Group, announced that mega producer The Dream, will be the new Executive Vice President of A&R for Def Jam Recordings.

Via Barry Weiss:

“The-Dream is a gifted songwriter and producer who writes from a unique cultural point of view. This rare ability sets him apart from all other writers and producers out there,” says Weiss on singer-songwriter’s new position.

The Dream was understandably excited about this new opportunity:

“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. 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. 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!’”

Congratulations to The Dream, I can’t wait to see what types of things he does over at Def Jam.
