Dr. Dre’s forthcoming album, Compton, will be streamed on Apple Music from 6pm-9pm PST Thursday (August 6), according to Beats 1 radio host Zane Lowe.
“Listen to the premiere of @drdre new album, Compton,” Lowe writes on Twitter today (August 4). “Uncensored & exclusively on @AppleMusic.”
Dr. Dre announced the album Saturday (August 1) on “The Pharmacy,” his Beats 1 radio show. The project, which features Eminem, The Game, Kendrick Lamar, Jon Connor, Snoop Dogg, King Mez and others, is scheduled to be released on Friday (August 8).
