Terius Nash, aka r&b king The-Dream, just gave us all a last minute Christmas gift in the form of IAMSAM, a set of eight covers of soul icon Sam Cooke that he posted to Soundcloud. You can listen below.

On his Instagram, Nash noted that the covers were recorded with guitarist Pat Thrall during the sessions for Beyoncé's 2011 album 4 and that the album is a tribute to his late mother. "My Mother loved a lot of Artist growing up, but the one we shared the most interest in together was Sam Cooke, so Tonight I give him back to her."
