Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg’s video for ‘Still D.R.E.’ has surpassed one billion views following their SuperBowl performance.
The performance was the most-viewed Super Bowl in five years, and the 15-minute masterclass half-time was utterly mesmerising. It kicked off with Dre bringing out Snoop to burst into ‘The Next Episode’ and ‘California Love’. A surprise appearance from 50 Cent followed as he brought ‘In Da Club’ to California.
The crowd at the So-Fi Stadium in Inglewood were then greeted by some soulful bliss courtesy of Mary J. Blige before Kendrick Lamar wowed the audience with ‘M.a.a.D. City’ and ‘Alright’.
For the penultimate track, Eminem joined Dre, as well as Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals for ‘Lose Yourself’ before the former N.W.A maestro and Snoop reunited to close the show with ‘Still D.R.E.’
Dre has since talked to TMZ about changing some lyrics to make it more family-friendly. He said, “There were a few things we had to change, but it was really minor things.”
He added, “They had a problem with it, so we had to take that out. No big deal, we get it. But all in all, everybody came in, we were professional, everybody was on time and everybody felt the magnitude of this thing and what we were gonna be able to accomplish.”
