Dr. Dre joins taylor swift by making this major album move
You’ll recall T-Swizzle made headlines when she had the tech giant modify its royalties policies earlier this month. Following this, the brand will be the only service to stream 1989 when it launches Tuesday (Jun. 30), according to Forbes. Now, it seems Dr. Dre will follow suit with one of his own special projects.
The producer’s 1992 classic The Chronic will join 1989 as an exclusive stream for Apple Music, according to a Monday (Jun. 29) report by Rolling Stone. The LP has been missing from platforms like Spotify and even Beats Music since at least 2011, when Dr. Dre regained the project’s digital rights in a legal battle.
Perhaps now is a good time to unleash The Chronic online, as Dre’s heavily involved with the Apple Music launch. Not only is he integral to Beats (which Apple acquired last year) as one of its founders, but the Aftermath boss – along with Pharrell and Drake – is among the high-profile celebs slated to have their own radio shows on the platform, according to The New York Times. The Good Doc’s show title? “The Pharmacy.”
Want a taste of what you can expect from The Chronic? Here are some of the album’s classic singles:
’Let Me Ride’
’Nuthin’ But A ’G’ Thang’
’F–k Wit Dre Day (And Everybody’s Celebratin’)’
Now Dre, if you want to give Apple Music another exclusive stream, maybe we can get the oft-delayed Detox…or whatever the next album’s title is now.
