Dr. Dre says that his new album Detox is almost done, but not quite ready to be released. On a recent episode of BET’s 106 & Park, the rapper was able to give a quick update about his highly anticipated 3rd studio album.

“The song with Jay-Z should be out next month. We’ll see how that goes,” the Doc told Terrence and Rocsi on Wednesday’s “106 & Park.” The first single, “Under Pressure,” features Jay-Z and production from Scott Storch. As for the album, Dre gave us a reason to want a short summer. “Hopefully at the beginning of fall,” he revealed. Storch recently told DJ Skee that the project is about three records away from completion. “I feel like I’m proud of it and here it is. It’s coming,” added Dre.


In addition to working on his new album, Dr. Dre has been busy promoting his “Beats by Dre” line of headphones, which also features earphones from Diddy (“Diddybeats”) and Lady Gaga (“Monster Heartbeats”). Dre and Diddy have been in New York promoting Diddybeats all week.
