Eminem, Dr. Dre Return to Pop Radio With ‘I Need a Doctor’
Eminem and Dr. Dre had their collaboration track ‘I Need a Doctor’ prematurely leaked to the Internet last November, but that doesn’t mean they’re tossing the joint. In fact, the ‘Detox’ leak, produced by Alex Da Kid and featuring singer Skylar Grey, is slated to impact pop radio on Feb. 1, though it is unclear on which album the final product will land.
The brash song, which echoes the sound of Alex Da Kid’s production on Eminem’s hit ‘Love the Way You Lie,’ boasts clobbering drums and wheezing synthesizers and lyrics where each rapper pays tribute to one another. “You came to me when I was at my lowest/ You picked me up, breathed new life in me/ I owe my life to you,” Em says to his mentor, who reflects on the first time he met the Detroit rapper.
Though the track isn’t confirmed to appear on Dre’s mythical album ‘Detox,’ its presence on pop radio could mean that it’s the follow-up to his first single ‘Kush.’ The weed anthem, which features Snoop Dogg and Akon, leaked to the Internet before it’s official release in November. The album, which has been in the works for almost a decade, is rumored to hit stores in the next few months.
