Dr. Dre Announces New Album 'Casablanco' with Marsha Ambrosius
Dr. Dre has new music on the way.
The rap icon has announced his first project in over six years, a collaborative album with Marsha Ambrosius called Casablanco.
He shared the news with his 6 million Instagram followers, posting a selfie from the studio with an orchestra behind him.
“I just finished recording an album with Marsha Ambrosius. ‘Casablanco’ I had a blast!!” Dre wrote. “This is some of my best work!!”
The former Floetry songstress echoed the sentiment, adding, “I just finished recording an album with Dr. Dre ‘Casablanco’ I had an amazing time!! This is some of my best work!!!”
Casablanco marks Dre’s first body of work since 2015’s Compton, inspired by the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton. He and Marsha previously worked together on songs for the album.
In addition to Casablanco, Dre has contributed new music to Grand Theft Auto Online: The Contract, including a collaboration with Eminem, which arrives Dec. 15.
Back in January, there were rumors that the 56-year-old producer had revived his scrapped Detox album after being released from the hospital for a brain aneurysm.
On the personal side, Dre recently reached an agreement that would finalize his divorce from ex-wife Nicole Young. Dre was seen celebrating the news by posing under a balloon arch that spelled out “Divorced AF.”
