[artist id="2801312"]The-Dream[/artist] and [artist id="1230523"]Kanye West[/artist] want to record a full album together, the R&B singer says. West appears on Dream's "Walking on the Moon," the probable third single from the singer/songwriter's just-released album [article id="1606521"]Love vs. Money.[/article]
"Everybody is trying to talk us into it," Dream said of his and West's friends and business associates. "It was first thought of by me. I was in Miami at the time, and I gave Kanye a call and said, 'The best thing would be for me and you to do an album.' I feel he's at a certain place in hip-hop, I'm at a certain place in R&B, and lyrically, I'm just in a certain place in my lifetime. Let's take the best of both worlds and put it on a CD and try to make something we can sell to the consumers. He says he's with it. We're gonna try to make it happen. I told him, 'Let me lift my profile up a little bit.' "
Reps for West declined to comment on a joint-album plan.
Seeing that The-Dream recorded his debut LP Love/Hate in just nine days, and it took Kanye a little more than half that time to record 808s & Heartbreak, Dream feels the collaborative full-length could be tackled in no time.
"It wouldn't take that long at all, once we got the concept," Dream said.
Next up on his plate, Dream is co-writing [article id="1603587"]Mariah Carey's entire next album[/article]. They're penning and recording at a feverish pace, coming up with seven records in six days.

Blige's next album is also on deck, and The-Dream is headed out on the road with Keyshia Cole on a tour.
