Dr. Dre Confirms Detox Single With Jay-Z (Video)
Dr. Dre has literally had the internet going nuts in the past week, ever since rumours started circulating of the first official "Detox" single being around the corner, in form of a collaboration with none other than Jay-Z.
While fans have become weary of getting excited for "Detox" over and over again without it coming to fruition, the craze has hit home once again and the Doctor’s long awaited album is the number one topic amongst Hip-Hop fans all over.
After a picture of Dr. Dre and Jay-Z in the studio leaked a few days ago (see to your left), the song was confirmed to be real. Shortly after, Interscope boss Jimmy Iovine made it official when he announced that the song was called "Under Pressure".
Yesterday, Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine appeared on CNBC for an interview about the "Beats by Dr. Dre" headphones and 6:40 minutes into the interview, Dr. Dre himself confirms the Jay-Z collaboration and announces that he is pushing to get "Detox" out this year. Watch the interview below:
However, fans shouldn’t be too quick to get their hopes up for "Detox" to drop this year. Dr. Dre also spoke to the Boston Herald, here is an excerpt of the interview:
"But when asked if “Detox” would appear before next year, he was noncommital. “I’m on my slow creep right now,” Dre said. “But then I’m gonna come hit ’em with the tsunami.”"
It looks like we’re going to have to play the waiting game once again. Bring on "Under Pressure", Dre! We got you!
