Last.fm Trends: Fighting Talk From Dr. Dre
Dr. Dre is still on the long comeback trail for unreleased album Detox, and he’s just premiered new single “Die Hard” featuring Eminem. It’s the third single from his new set, but can he match up to previous hits?
Dre’s six-month top tracks are all from second album 2001, much like the last time we looked. Singles sit alongside album tracks, suggesting fans enjoy the release as a comprehensive package – and that Dre’s new material may really shoot up the charts whenever Detox gets its release.
The teaser tracks so far have clearly caught fans’ imagination, but a downward Recent Listening Trend might show that they’re waiting for the full album. “I Need A Doctor” is more popular than previous single “Kush” however, which has only reached 6,792 listeners so far. If “Die Hard” can continue the trend, it may be able to break 2001‘s rule on the charts without an album to back it up.
