In an interview that was featured on France’s SkyRock radio Dr. Dre and Interscope’s Jimmy Iovine explained that Dr. Dre’s Detox single featuring Jay-Z, “Under Pressure,” was delayed because of the release of Eminem’s latest single “Not Afraid.”
HipHop-N-More.com reports that in the interview Dr. Dre and Iovine explained that Eminem’s single wasn’t planned to drop first and as a result the release of “Under Pressure” was delayed.
While “Under Pressure” may still be released as a single another track may now be released before “Under Pressure.” A release may come some time this summer.
In other Detox news Scott Storch, the producer behind the “Under Pressure” track, recently revealed that although many are skeptical about Detox’s release the album is still scheduled to be released this year. In Storch’s interview with DJ Skee he also explained that Detox is only three tracks away from completion.
A set release for Detox has yet to be announced.
