"You might not hear [Beyoncé] on the album because there’s a sample issue we're having," the 'Shawty Is Da Shit' hitmaker told Vibe. "We'll be praying about that."
And we'll be praying the sample was 'You Can Call Me Al'.
While he's obviously aware that it would be nice for Beyoncé fans to hear an actual full song from her at some point this year, The-Dream's not willing to compromise his art.
"We could switch it up but it's almost like this particular sample made the record. So, if it's not right then we don't do it. I do don't songs 'just because'," he continued.
The song is apparently called 'Fire' and may or may not be on The-Dream's forthcoming 'IV Play' album.
