Dr. Dre using La Roux sample
La Roux's singer, Elly Jackson, has revealed to BBC's Newsbeat that Dr. Dre has sampled one of her tracks on his forthcoming album 'Detox'.
The record still doesn't have a release date, but the 'Guilty Conscience' rapper has been working on it for sometime and after hearing La Roux's 'In For The Kill' on an episode of 'Entourage' he got in touch to ask for the rights:
"He got really excited about the track which is obviously really complimentary,"
"He did something with it and then sent it to us and said can he use it for his record and we said, 'Yes.'"
Jackson hasn't confirmed which of Dr. Dre's tracks will feature her vocals, but divulged:
"Apparently he and The Game, this is a really hilarious image for me, were sitting watching Entourage together."
"My manager always jokes that they were eating ice cream, under blankets and having a girls night in."
"[He's used] Mainly the vocal and then he put his own beats on it. It's supposed to be on the next record."
