Dr. Dre Welcomes Jay Z To The ‘Jungle’ With NBA Finals Remix

Beats By Dre debuts Hov's remix debuts during game 5.

Maybe Jay Z wasn’t sitting court side when LeBron and the Heat lost to the Spurs Sunday night, but his presence was still felt. During game 5 of the NBA Finals, Beats By Dre debuted a remix of X Ambassadors and Jamie N Commons’ single “Jungle,” featuring Jay.

The rock-heavy, upbeat track, produced by Alex Da Kid, originally appeared in Beats’ five-minute “Game Before the Game” commercial last week, featuring stars like Lil Wayne and Heat star James, but a revamped version hit TV last night. Shortly before that, Dre hinted that something big was coming, with a tweet directed at Jay. The full song will be available exclusively for Beats subscribers in the next week.

This one is for motivation and Hov knows there are “records to break, medals to take, flags to wave,” especially with the World Cup in full swing.

Dre is having a great year so far. He and Jimmy Iovine recently inked a $3 billion deal with Apple for Beats Music, and then the Doc had the most low-key celebration ever.
