Could Detox really be around the corner? The long-awaited, almost mythical album by music legend
The Doc and Interscope head Jimmy Iovine participated in a little batting practice, promoted the Sox-themed Beats by Dr. Dre headphones and spoke briefly about the new single, "Under Pressure," to sports network NESN.
When reporter Heidi Watney asked what his at-bat song would be, Iovine responded, "The new song Dre has in his pocket, called 'Under Pressure.' It's a brand new single by Dr. Dre and Jay-Z. That's the song I would use." (At press time, a release date for the song had not been announced.)
"Absolutely, that would be it," agreed Dre, who told MTV News back in October Jay had been writing something for Detox. " 'Under Pressure.' It's so fitting."
When Dre was asked who from the Red Sox he would want to use "Under Pressure" as their at-bat theme, the production great said it wasn't even a question: David Ortiz. "Absolutely, Big Papi."
And how are Dre's hitting skills? Doc, who wore a Red Sox jersey with the number "808" on it, told Watney that he would be OK, though he was "a little bit nervous."
"I was cool until I walked on the field," he said. "Now, it's a little intimidating. I played a little bit as a kid. But I did go the batting cage a couple of times before today, so I'll think I'll be all right."
