WHAT’S IN DRE’S POCKET!???
I dunno if you’re as excited as we are for this… BUT apparently Dr Dre has a NEW single & its called “Under Pressure” (FINALLY!!!)
Could this be signs of things to come!?? We hope so…
WOTS… in a recent interview w/ the New England Sports Network promoting the “Beats” by Dre headphones, Jimmy Iovine stated that the super producer has a new single “in his pocket”!
“Hopefully we’ll be releasing that in the next two weeks or so… And I’m definitely gonna be putting out the album this year. Finally. I think everyone is gonna be happy with it.”
– Dr Dre, CNBC
MAN! We hope this is true… we hope he keeps to his word!!! (fingers crossed)
If & when the long awaited “Detox” album drops, this will be Dre’s 1st studio album since 1999. As far as the material is concerned… the Dr isn’t talkin bout the same ol’ “BS”
“I had to come up with something different but still keep it hardcore, so what I decided to do was make my album one story about one person and just do the record through a character’s eyes, and everybody that appears on my album is going to be a character, so it’s basically going to be a hip-hop musical”
– Dr Dre, MTV (2002)
Now we know that this album was suppose to drop years & years ago, but if Jimmy Iovine is speaking any truth to this rumored new single… then we definitely have hopes!
Let’s just hope this time it’s for real!!!
