Dreams and Nightmares

Album: Dreams & Nightmares (2012)
  • The title track of rapper Meek Mill's debut album finds him recounting the highs and lows of his journey. "I start off real calm, and just talkin' to 'em over a beat," he told XXL magazine's Shaheem Reid. "And then when I get to the nightmare part, I just start screaming, going bananas... Just show 'em the both sides: I could be a dream or I could be a nightmare."
  • The song was adopted by the Philadelphia Eagles as a de facto anthem in January 2018 for their Super Bowl championship aspirations, which resulted in it gaining a significant spike in both sales and streams. The day after the team emerged as Super Bowl LII champions, "Dreams and Nightmares" accumulated a massive 1.47 million on-demand audio and video streams, as fans celebrated the Eagles' victory.
  • After a beef that lasted a couple of years, Drake and Meek Mill finally reconciled publicly on September 8, 2018. Their burial of the hatchet came about when Drake brought his one-time nemesis on stage to perform "Dreams and Nightmares" during his gig at the TD Garden in Boston on that date.
