The music world has been buzzing about Dr. Dre since last week, especially on the Internet, because of rumors that the long-awaited single from Detox was coming and it is to feature Jay-Z. They were further fueled by a recent photo of the pair in the studio together.
Well, the rumors were true.
Dre confirmed it himself over the weekend, while at Boston’s Fenway Park doing promo for a Red Sox-themed version of his popular Beats By Dre headphones.
NESN reporter Heidi Watney interviewed both Dre and Interscope head Jimmy Iovine about the new Beats headphones, and before ending the interview, asked what their theme song would be if they were to step into the batter’s box.
Both said a track called “Under Pressure”.
“The new song Dre has in his pocket called ‘Under Pressure’, it’s a brand new single by Dr. Dre and Jay-Z. That’s the song I would use,” Iovine.
“Absolutely, that would be it. It’s so fitting,” Dre added.
Watney had just confirmed some of the biggest news in music without even knowing, so she didn’t try, or even know, to follow-up with any questions about the single for further info.
So at press time, when the single would drop, or if it will even be the first single was unknown.
Stay tuned for details…
