According to reports, this is both artists’ first ever visual to join YouTube’s one billion club and was achieved just a few days after their Super Bowl Halftime Show. The pair joined forces with Mary J. Blige, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar, and closed out the celebrated performance with the distinct piano riff of “Still D.R.E.” and Dre rapping his verse.
“Still D.R.E.” appeared in Dr. Dre’s 1991 sophomore studio album 2001, its music video helmed by Hype Williams and featured big names including Eminem as Slim Shady, Xzibit, Funkmaster Flex and Warren G.
