The-Dream Streaming His Surprise Sam Cooke Tribute Album

(Radio.com) The-Dream surprised fans with an eight-track tribute album to Sam Cooke Tuesday (Dec. 22). IAMSAM includes such Cooke hits as "Bring It On Home," "Everybody Loves to Cha Cha" and "You Send Me."

The-Dream doesn't deviate too far from each original song's structure, but his voice lends the overall project a sweeter air. Where Cooke's voice had a weightier heft, The-Dream's vocals give each song a lighter feel.

The project is a tribute to his mother, who passed away on Dec. 23, 1992. Posting on Instagram, he shared why he decided to cover Cooke. "My Mother loved a lot of Artist growing up, but the one we shared the most interest in together was Sam Cooke, so Tonight I give him back to her." Stream the album here.
