Dr. Dre’s ‘Under Pressure Leaks Online

The song is the first release from
Dre’s long awaited Detox album- which he’s been working on for
over 10 years. Under Pressure features a dance influenced beat
similar to some of Timblaland’s recent solo releases. The song
isn’t mixed or mastered and has no chorus, but it offers more than an
inkling of where the two legends are headed. 

In April Dre’s label boss Jimmy
Iovine let slip news of the track. Asked what song he’d play on the
headphones he was promoting he said: “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.”

Nas, T.I. The
Game, R. Kelly, Lil Wayne and Snoop have all worked with Dre on his
Detox album- which does not yet have an official release date. In
April, Dr Dre said he was hoping to release ‘Under Pressure’ “in
the next two weeks or so”, but the song never arrived. The rapper
and producer added that he was looking to releasing the album this
year.

Outside of Detox, Dre has been working
with Eminem, of course, and the Game on his new LP The R.E.D. Album.
