On Monday (Aug. 16) the new song, titled 'Turn Me On' began its rounds on the Web. The two minute snippet -- which will reportedly appear on the highly anticipated 'Detox' album -- ends abruptly after one verse from Dre, who rhymes over a hard bass line, accompanied by both male and female vocals.
"Seven stars must be my aura/I mastered levitation, I stay up in the clouds," Dre spits. "Penthouse, hovering a hundred floors up/I'm on some tantric yoga/The ladies love the way I shine, I'm like Merlin when I'm erotic/I make ya squirm no hands on ya body."
So far, Dr. Dre has made no comment about the new, incomplete track. But following the 'Under Pressure' leak -- which lacked a proper hook -- Dre immediately released a statement promising that the song would be re-released. "I want to set the record straight for everybody who's been waiting to hear my music" Dre said in a statement. "The song that's on the Internet is an incompletely song that I'm still working on. When it's ready, you'll be hearing it from me." 'Under Pressure' was later re-tooled for an HP commercial.
Dre promises that his 'Detox' album will finally debut in 2011.
