Dr Dre used his Apple Music Beats 1 show to debut an unreleased track.
The song, called ‘Naked’, features Marsha Ambrosius and Sly Piper and is thought to have resulted from the recording sessions for Dre’s recently released ‘Compton’ album.
It is likely to be one of the few ‘Compton’ offcuts to be released, with Dre saying: “The majority is not for sale. If you are a recording artist – or any type of artist – everything isn’t for sale.”

Dre’s ‘The Pharmacy’ radio show launched back in July, with Dre explaining: “I’ve made music. I’m making movies now. So a radio station? Why not?”
It was on his show that he announced his first album in 16 years, and he also said that ‘Compton’ would be his last.
This year also saw the release of the Straight Outta Compton film, which chronicles the rise of Dre’s legendary former hip-hop group NWA.
Earlier this year, Dre attracted criticism for lyrics on ‘Compton’. Eminem’s work on ‘Medicine Man’ drew much of the ire with the lyrics: “Ain’t no one safe from, non-believers there ain’t none/I even make the bitches I rape cum”.
Dre recently spoke of his desire to tour Europe with collaborators Snoop Dog, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar. He said: “This is one of the things that I dreamed about doing. I want to call it ‘Beats & Rhymes’”.
