The-Dream Says Most Of ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ Was Completed In 2 Weeks (VIDEO)

After an in-depth interview with Timbaland was released last week, RevoltTV sat down with The-Dream for the latest installment of  Unlocking The Holy Grail. The singer-songwriter talks about how he crafted his song “Holy Grail” for Jay-Z.


The-Dream, aka Terius Nash, reveals he first presented the track during the Watch The Throne sessions. He also says the bulk of the Magna Carta Holy Grail was completed in 2 weeks.

“It was literally like, the body, two weeks of work,” shared The-Dream. “The significant part of this album — two weeks of work. Easily.” According to Dream, he and Timbaland were originally working on a Beyoncé project not one for Jay-Z.

The Atlanta native also compares the creation of Jay’s 12th solo album to the energy of the Master P and No Limit movement in the late 1990's, and later in the interview he gives his take on the growing irrelevance of album sales and the rise of advertising-based partnerships with artists.
