Snoop Dogg Confirms Dr. Dre's "Detox" is Finished

June 26, 2008 12:20 PM ET

Dr. Dre's Detox could be considered the rap equivalent of Guns n' Roses' Chinese Democracy. Both albums are long in the making, oft-delayed and sometimes seem entirely fictional. But as we discovered that Chinese Democracy is close to becoming a reality thanks to those leaked tracks, Snoop Dogg confirmed today that Detox is on its way as well. "That record is real, it's coming," Snoop Dogg said, having recently recorded tracks for Dre's album. "I was starting to doubt it myself and then I went up in there and he played so much music for me it knocked my head off." Snoop also adds the album is finished, and now it's up to Dre to go through all the songs he's culled and decide which make the final cut. "I see what he got them waiting for, it's on and poppin'," the Doggfather said. Snoop also revealed that Dre will produce his next record, the follow-up to Ego Trippin'.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
