The-Dream Gets Emo in ‘Wake Me When It’s Over’ Video
The-Dream is not mincing words in his visual for 'Wake Me When It's Over,' a lush, emo ballad about heartbreak and a relationship gone awry.
Featuring an actress that looks awfully similar to The-Dream's real-life ex Christina Milian, many fans speculate that the song's personal lyrics are a testament to their relationship. "What have you been drinking? What have I been doing?/ Where I was last night? Did you mean who I’ve been screwing? / Life on the internet, I look like a devil / But you wearing the red dress, holding a shovel," he croons. The two divorced in 2011.
The song appears on the singer's upcoming album, '1977,' to be released December 18. Dream previously released '1977' as a mixtape under his given name, Terius Nash in 2011. The effort is set to feature 10 previously released cuts plus two new tracks.
