It didn’t take long for The Dream to win over the Chicago crowd at his Metro show on February 25. The Dream is a behind-the-scenes guy writing hit songs for Rihanna, Beyonce, Justin Bieber and many more talented artists. But at the Metro he commanded the stage and got everyone in the party mood. He got the place hype with songs “Purple Kisses” and “Falsetto.” He even set a romantic mood with “Code Blue.” He was clearly having a good time laughing and smiling along with the crowd.
Aside from this solo work, he pulled out some of his finest work he’s crafted for others. He blazed through Jay Z’s “Holy Grail” and tore up Kanye West’s “All of the Lights” and “Ultralight Beam.” It was a night that reminded you of the talent and hard work behind The Dream’s career. Even if he’s not always front and center, he clearly gives it his all. Check out our gallery for a recap of The Dream’s Metro show below.
