Fans have been waiting with bated breath for The-Dream to drop the fourth installment of his ‘Love’ series, and it looks like it’s coming real soon. The hitmaker has penciled in Aug. 14 as the release date for his new LP ‘Love IV MMXXII.’

For those who may not be familiar with Roman numerals, the ‘Love IV MMXII’ stands for “Love 4 2012.” Clever, huh?

The collection is the follow-up to his free album ‘1977,’ which he released last summer under his government name, Terius Nash. ‘Love IV’ will feature guest appearances from Mary J. Blige and Gucci Mane, according to Idolator. He already released the LP’s teaser single ‘Kill the Lights,’ which features his R&B protege Casha.

The-Dream made a formal announcement on Wednesday (May 16) via his Twitter page that ‘Love’ is in the air.

“LOVE IV is the BEST Album I’ve made. I don’t care what the sales will be,” he tweeted to his fans. “I will do my best to Challenge your Taste And Knowledge.”

“I will Leave no Holes in this Album Period, no room to be Hated only Adored or simply just say ‘you don’t f— with me,’ he continued. “But what U won’t Say is Dream Album is Mediocre or Sucks. I will Never Be your Star I’m [too] G and [too] Westside for that.”

He then finished his Twitter rant with, “I will never Sellout Arenas because since ‘Love Hate’ I didn’t Sellout! And no matter how much you hate me you got to Respect that!”

We’ll have to wait and see if The-Dream will get some R-E-S-P-E-C-T come August.
