Terius “The-Dream” Nash has always been a very interesting fella, from his fashion sense to his dating life and his penchant for marrying folks, impregnating them, and then bolting to repeat the same way of doing things with another woman. But when it comes to the music, it’s clear that he’s the definition of a hitmaker. From Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” to Justin Bieber’s “Baby” and Rihanna’s “Umbrella,” he’s made millions off of songs that only last minutes. Need proof? Here are 10 songs that have been favorites of ours that he’s been behind, whether writing the track on his own or working in a collective to produce these classics. As Nash would said on his Twitter: “I will still be paid to create another Classic, why. Because I’m Dope.”

Yeah…something like that.

Bed by J. Holiday

Who wasn’t jamming extra hard to this party-closing, sultry evening jam in 2007? The track was written by The-Dream and produced by Los Da Mystro, and was number one on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for five weeks straight while it peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was so popular in fact, that there were more than 10 remixes to it by everyone from Ja Rule and Trina, to Fabolous and Busta Rhymes. But of course, nothing beats the original!

  • kang trill ♚

    kim k’s song was pure garbage

  • Ashe

    “Turn Me Up” should have ended his career!

  • AncientSpiritNewDay

    Hard By Rhianna was and still is one of my favorite songs but The Dream looks like a Teddy Graham snack.

  • Traceface

    Kim Kardashian sounds like Cassie in her music video. And that isn’t saying much….

  • rene

    This is one of my favorite songs.

  • NeaJ

    You mean to tell me Beyonce didn’t write every song she’s ever sang? Does she know he wrote those songs or is she taking credit for them too? Lol

  • True

    Trust if Duck face wrote the song we already know he not a good ghost writer

    • Dina

      They should have put THAT SONG up there!
      Aside: I believe he has NO PROBLEM putting a ring on it – and SNATCHING it off the moment the woman has his child!

  • jmjg

    Terrible songs.

  • He needs to stay in the studio. He’s racking up alimony and support payments faster than he’s churning out hits.

    • Mia

      Ikr!? I didn’t like any of those songs except maybe “Bed”

      • NOnya

        WHAT?!!! Those were/are some great hits!!

        • Mia

          Can we say dramatic much? It’s called having different taste. Nothing wrong with that. I also don’t like any of Neyo’s songs either.

      • kierah

        I only liked “Hard” by Rihanna. The rest I could definitely pass on.

    • Nonya

      He must like giving away his money.

    • Dina

      THANK YOU!!
