Dr Dre has used his first Beats 1 ‘The Pharmacy’ show of the year to launch a new track entitled ‘Back to Business’.
The premiere follows last summer’s release ‘Compton’, Dre’s first new record in sixteen years, which also saw the rapper promo new content heavily through his Apple Music show.
The new track ‘Back to Business’ features T.I., Justus, Victoria Monet, and Sly Piper, and follows on from ‘Naked’, which was also premiered on The Pharmacy back in November.
While ‘Naked’ is what’s expected to be a rare offcut from the ‘Compton’ recordings, the origins of ‘Back to Business’ remain unclear.

Dre has also used his show over recent months to propose a European tour to be undertaken together with Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar, as well as to feature numerous freestyle appearances from various hip-hop stars, and to get involved himself. At the time of the launch of ‘Compton’, the rapper said the album would be his last.
The super-producer signed up to Apple Music’s radio channel in the summer alongside the likes of Run The Jewels, Josh Homme, St Vincent, Haim and former Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe.
Speaking about the show at the time he said: “I’ve made music. I’m making movies now. So a radio station? Why not?”
