#Dreamwork has been trending on Twitter since 3am after AKA posted a link in the early hours of this morning.
A dedicated website – http://www.iiirdwrld.com/ – was activated as part of the synchronized launch of the single this morning which features exclusive unique animated video visuals for Dreamwork. Traffic to the website has already reached high volumes, only a few hours later.
In the song, AKA talks about how “teamwork” makes the “DREAM” work. Dreamwork is produced by noteworthy producer, KJ Conteh of California, who has produced music for the likes of 50cent, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, T.I. and Drake just to name a few.
The artwork for Dreamwork is very unique as it plays on the popular 90s video game, Contra. Is AKA alluding to the element of getting to the next level quicker when you are in a team?
