Behind The Hits: The-Dream – Single Ladies [Video]

During Grammy Week in New York City, Universal Music Group invited a small group of media, tastemakers and corporate partners to a private live interview with Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer The-Dream. Titled ‘Behind the Hits’ the conversation between the hit-maker and host Miss Info gave the audience a look into the mind and creative process of one of this generation’s greatest songwriters. In this clip, The-Dream breaks down the inspiration behind writing Beyoncé’s 2008 hit single “Single Ladies.” A portion of his songwriting development goes back to growing up in a single mother household and the conversations that he would overhear on Friday nights between his mother and her friends. In contrast, Dream also jumps forward to how his writing and relationship with Beyoncé and Jay-Z changed over the years and the difference between writing for Queen Bey back then and more recently on her acclaimed album ‘Lemonade.’
