Dr. Dre Says He Is Working on Mary J. Blige's New Album
It’s about to be a family reunion.
Still running off the high of the Super Bowl Halftime Show, Dr. Dre checked in with TMZ where he revealed that he and Mary J. Blige are planning to collaborate on her next album.
“We’re talking about working together on her next project,” said Dre, who produced Mary’s 2001 hit “Family Affair.” “I’m not even sure I’m supposed to be saying this or not, so I’m sorry Mary.”
Following Sunday’s performance, he and Mary celebrated by hitting the studio at his house. “We were downstairs having a ton of fun, just listening to samples and music.”
On Friday, Mary released her new album Good Morning Gorgeous featuring Anderson .Paak, Fivio Foreign, Dave East, DJ Khaled, and Usher.
During the interview, Dre also reflected on making history with Mary, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and 50 Cent at Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium.
“Everybody came in, we were professional, everybody was on time,” Dre said. “Everybody really felt the magnitude of what this thing was and what were were going to be able to accomplish, and it was a fantastic experience.”
The hip-hop icon revealed that the NFL made some minor changes to their performance. While they were aware of Eminem taking a knee during “Lose Yourself,” they asked Kendrick to remove the lyrics “If Pirus and Crips all got along” from the beginning of “m.A.A.d city.”
“They had a problem with that so we had to take that out. No big deal. We get it,” said Dre.
After it was all over, Dre treated himself to some McDonald’s. “There’s something about those McDonald’s French fries,” he said. “I deserve it today, I’ma treat myself and go and pig out today.”
