Dr Dre and Jay-Z single ‘Under Pressure’ to be released ‘in the next two weeks’

Rapper/Producer also reveals his long-overdue album 'Detox' will be out this year

A new single by Dr Dre and featuring Jay-Z will be released “in the next two weeks”.

Called ‘Under Pressure’, the track is the first issued from the long-awaited album ‘Detox’, which the rapper/producer has also revealed will be coming out later this year, rather than the previously announced 2011.

“Hopefully, we’ll be releasing [‘Under Pressure’] in the next two weeks or so,” Dr Dre told CNBC. “I’m definitely gonna be putting the album out this year, finally. I think everyone is gonna be happy with it.”

The follow-up to the critically acclaimed LP ‘2001’ (released in 1999), ‘Detox’ was orginally due in 2004, while last year the rapper previewed a new track called ‘Shit Popped Off’ in a Dr Pepper advert.
