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.

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!
