“The new song Dre has in his pocket, it's called Under Pressure. It's a new song by Dr. Dre and Jay-Z…”
The head of Interscope records is confirming what's been speculated for a little over a week now, that a legendary musical collaboration was made featuring Dr. Dre and Jay-Z.
As previously reported, rumors were swirling that the two collaborated for a new single after a series of tweets from Michael Yo of Y100 Miami and a picture surfaced of Dre and Jay in the studio.
While there was no confirmation then, Dre's “Beats By Dre” partner and head of his longtime label home cleared up the rumors himself.
In an interview with NESN's Game Day Live, Iovine and Dre were promoting their Beats By Dre headphones at the Boston Red Sox's batting practice.
When Jimmy was asked by the interviewer what song he'd like to her before a game, he proudly replied:
“The new song Dre has in his pocket, it's called Under Pressure. It's a new song by Dr. Dre and Jay-Z. That's the song I would use.”
When asked the same question, Dre agreed saying,
“Me too. Under Pressure, it's so fitting….”
No word on when the single will be released but be on the lookout for it on the net soon.
