Love King

Genre: R&B; Lead Performer: The Dream

On his third album as a performer, the man behind ”Umbrella” and ”Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” The Dream, doesn’t change things up much.

On Love King the slow-thumping ’80s-R&B vibe suggests Prince is still a huge influence; even darling Nikki might blush at these racy tunes. B
