Following the release of the epic 10-minute double track "Body Work/F*ck My Brains Out," the-Dream posted on Twitter, "My records are intended for sensual, sexual and intelligent people." The seductive prowess of the R&B singer/ producer (real name: Terius Nash) often shines through in his work for other artists like Mariah Carey and Beyoncé, but on this first offering from fourth solo album "The Love, IV (Diary of a Mad Man)," he is even more unapologetic. On "Body Work," the singer makes his intentions clear when he croons, "Put it on me, baby," his words appropriately followed by an explosion of fireworks. But just when the listener suspects "Body Work" sounds like a more mature version of the "Love Hate" single "Falsetto," the tempo quickens and suddenly he's singing "F*ck my brains out" in the second part of the track, proving that he hasn't changed one bit since his 2007 debut.
