After rumors of a Dr. Dre and Jay-Z collaboration started circulating last week after the release of an image of the two heavyweights in a recording studio together, Dr. Dre and music executive Jimmy Iovine confirmed that the two rappers have indeed joined forces for a track titled "Under Pressure."
"The new song Dre has in his pockets called 'Under Pressure.' It's a brand new single by Dre and Jay-Z. That's the song I would use," Iovine told New England Sports Network when asked what track he would use as his at-bat song if he were a Major League Baseball player.
"Absolutely, that would be it. 'Under Pressure" -- it's so fitting," Dr. Dre agreed, adding that he'd like David Ortiz, aka "Big Papi," to consider using the track. Dre and Iovine were at Fenway Park for the Red Sox vs. Yankees game at Boston's Fenway Park promoting Dr. Dre's Beats by Dr. Dre headphones.
In addition to Jay-Z, Nas is rumored to appear on the oft-delayed album, as well as Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, Eminem and T.I. As of yet, the Aftermath/Interscope album has no official release date, but the upcoming debut of "Under Pressure" could indicate the highly-anticipated set will be available soon.
