Dr. Dre Talks Detox Delays, LeBron James Partnership

Dre hopes to release Detox by Christmas, and unveils another line of headphones with NBA MVP LeBron James.

With a few unmastered leaks floating around the Internet, it appears that Dr. Dre's Detox will not be released until Christmas at the earliest. While speaking with Interscope/Geffen/A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine at a Beats By Dre press conference, Dre attempted to explain the multiple delays behind what many think will be his final solo album.

"In a perfect world, I'm trying to make Christmas," Dre said. "But we'll see...something will definitely be out by then. I have to wait until I feel it, and I'm working on it everyday."

Iovine and Dre hinted at a Jay-Z collaboration in April. The song, "Under Pressure" leaked to less-than-stellar reviews, and was labeled as an unmastered leak not fit for the album by Dre. The song was subsequently used in a Beats/HP commercial.

While no official music is being released, Dre continues to move forward expanding his Beats line. The aforementioned press conference showcased his Power Beats headphones, which are a collaboration with NBA MVP LeBron James. Dre and James appeared together at a Boston Red Sox game earlier this year to promote a special Red Sox edition of Beats headphones as well.
