“Murderer”, the new song from airy R&B auteur The-Dream, is a breathy Auto-Tuned reverie, and it doesn’t sound the slightest bit violent, title notwithstanding. The song shows up in Colombiana, the new movie where Zoe Saldana does a whole lot of gun-pointing, and the track’s video doubles as a Colombiana trailer. It even has the green preview screen at the beginning and everything. And even though the song doesn’t come close to fitting the images onscreen, it sort of works; I am going to watch the living shit out of Colombiana.
The-Dream’s new album The Love, IV (Diary Of A Mad Man) lands 9/20. (You’ve heard its “Body Work” and “Fuck My Brains Out.”) He’s also planning on using his birth name, Terius Nash, to release a free online album called 1977 on August 31.
