Over the past few years, The-Dream has worn several hats. From songwriter to producer to music label executive, the "Radio Killa" has penned hits for some of the biggest names in music, but his next project will find him using that winning formula for his own album 'The Love IV (Diary of a Mad Man).'

According to reports, Dream will call on the likes of his musical peers Mary J. Blige, Drake, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and possibly Dr. Dre, to appear on the album. Along with the new album news, two songs titled 'Body Work/F--- My Brains Out,' have also hit the 'Net.

Last year, Dream announced that he would retire after his third album, 'Love King,' hit stores. After quietly debuting at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, the album disappeared from the music chart, and according to Wikipedia, has sold less than 200,000 copies to date.

As of late, Dream's personal life has overshadowed his professional triumphs as news of his divorce from Christina Milian hit the news circuit last summer. Milian alleged that her husband of less than a year, and father to her young daughter Violet, was unfaithful during their union. "I didn't know anything," Milian told Latina Magazine. "But looking back, my gut was telling me something was off. But I thought I could fix it." The former couple appear to be on good terms, and were rumored to be rekindling their romance earlier this year, which Milian quickly refuted via her Twitter page.

'The Love IV (Diary of a Mad Man )' is slated to drop on Dream's birthday, Sept. 20.
