It’s become evident that when a famous person says something it can go viral in a matter of minutes. Their statement then runs the possibility of reaching the masses accurately or being misconstrued. Singer/songwriter The-Dream has become the latest celeb to experience such.

In a recent interview with Parlour magazine, the ATL native was asked about the album he’d recently written for R&B singer Ciara and if he thought it was her last shot at pop stardom. His response was, “I think so. You only get so many times to, and I won’t say fail, but not achieve. There’s an expectation of where Ciara should be in her career. To others, she’s achieved but not to us, because we saw where her career was headed. But now she’s back on the horse. When she first came out I, like Lil Jon and Jazze Pha, understood exactly who she was. It was that whole Atlanta vibe because if I’m not Atlanta, no one is. I knew if I had a chance to get with her creatively, there’s a specific type of swagger that she’s got. Tricky [Stewart] and I did her whole album, but it’s not all shallow songs like ‘Ride.’ There’s play time but there’s substance too, it’s a great listen.”
