DION TOUCHES THE SKY ON DREAM PENNED TRACK
According to a recent interview with Urban Bridgez, songwriter Terius "Dream" Nash helmed a song for Celine Dion called "Sky of L.A.", and it will be part of her forthcoming album – "Taking Chances" – due 13th November via Sony Music. The set is expected to boast additional collaborations with Kara Dioguardi (Ashlee Simpson, Christina Aguilera), Linda Perry (Alicia Keys, Britney Spears), John Shanks (Katharine McPhee, Delta Goodrem), Tim "Timbaland" Mosley (Madonna, Nelly Furtado), Schaffer "Ne-Yo" Smith (Whitney Houston, Jennifer Hudson) and Ryan "Alias" Tedder (Leona Lewis, Jennifer Lopez).
On a side note, did you guys know that Dream's signature hit, "Umbrella", was initially offered to Britney Spears? Actually I'm not really surprised cuz he previously penned her duet with Madonna - "Me against the Music". Look out for more of his work on the next projects by: -
- Nicole Scherzinger (A&M Records).
- Brit & Alex (Interscope Records).
- Lucy Walsh (Def Jam Records).
- Wynter Gordon (Atlantic Records).
- Karina Pasian (Def Jam Records).
- Mary J. Blige (Geffen Records).
- Gia Farrell (Atlantic Records).

"Sky Of L.A., L.A., L.A. A. A. A. ..."

I don't know how she would have done...performing that song, but then again, she would have probably put her own take on it. It doesn't sound like a britney song, but I guess with it being so long since she has even had a song, I guess she doesn't really have a sound anymore. She's pretty reinventing her sound all over again.

Hey Luis, thanx for the comment. Actually Mary was only one of the artists to whom "Umbrella" was offered. If you read the interview with Dream, he said it himself that it was also shopped for Spears. I can see her singing that song. Too bad she turned it down, lol! Keep writing :)

Not too long ago I read that Umbrella was originally for Mary J Blige. I read an interview saying that Rihanna wanted it really bad and ended up getting it. Mary J said that the song was meant more for Rihanna than it was for her. I hadn't heard the Britney Spears part before.
