The brand new video for Dr. Dre’s latest single featuring both Eminem and Skylar Grey was premired in the US earlier this evening.

After it was initially only released via the MTV.com website we had to endure the painful wait for it to be uploaded on Drakes VEVO channel as it was not available to UK residents. After considerable delay, the video is finally here and naturally we’re sharing it with you guys.

The video sees Dre emphatically crash his Ferrari as his life flashes before his eyes; leaving him in a coma for several years, before Em’s heartfelt words by his bedside bring him back to life. It signs out with Dre paying a visit to his deceased friend and fellow N.W.A member; Eazy-E.

[NEW MUSIC] Skylar Grey – Love The Way You Lie (Original Demo) by wearesme

On the back of the success of Rihannas ‘Love The Way You Lie’ which she both wrote and performed piano on; it has been a huge year for Skylar Grey so far. She has featured on Diddy Dirty Money’s ‘Coming Home’, Dr Dre & Eminem’s ‘I Need A Doctor’ and most recently Lupe Fiasco’s brand new single ‘Words I Never Said’.

Speaking to PopEater she spoke about ‘Love The Way You Lie’ and revealed that she wanted to let her fans hear the original demo which she sang.

“I wrote the demo initially for myself because I thought, ‘Oh, I have this big song, and now I have a little bit of a launching pad to put out my own stuff.’ As soon as Rihanna and her team heard my demo, they were like, ‘Oh we want it for Rihanna’s album,’ so I had to make the decision if I was going to let them have it or not. But I did and so it was on Rihanna’s album, too. I still felt like it would be cool to let people hear my version of it, too.”

The official, mastered version is here. Dr. Dres next single ‘I Need A Doctor’ features Eminem and Skylar Grey and will feature on the upcoming album; Detox.

If were honest, were not sure if we’re feeling it. Dre’s verse is whack and it might as well be Eminem feat. Dr. Dre. It sounds more like an Eminem track anyway, where are those Dre beats??



[NEWS+SNAPS] Sleek by 50 Cent Headphones by wearesme

50 Cent, ever the business man, is sticking a finger in another pie; this time he has the headphones market in his sights and with it Dr. Dre and his ‘Beats’.

“On Thursday 6th January, 50 Cent will host a press conference to announce a new deal on opening day with personal audio company, Sleek Audio at the South Hall Connector.

50 is expected to announce a deal with Sleek Audio to produce Sleek Headphones by 50 Cent, his own custom line of high-end headphones. ”

They look pretty sick; we will wait and see if the audio quality matches that of Dre’s beats. If they do, and are more competitively priced, you might start seeing a lot more Sleek’s than Beats on your tube rides to work.

**UPDATE**  Video from the press conference added!


[VIDEO + SNAPS] Rihanna, Jay-Z, Kanye & co bring in 2011 in style @ Marquee, Las Vegas by wearesme

It was a night unlike any other the Vegas Strip has ever seen at the grand opening of Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on New Years Eve.

Acclaimed global superstar DJ Erick Morillo kicked off the night with a set in the club’s Main Room and led the countdown to 2011, while Interscope’s Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre got the party started in the club’s VIP room with DJ Ross One. After the Jay-Z and Coldplay private concert in the event center at The Cosmopolitan the celebrties decended en masse to the new mega club for a historic opening.

HOVA was joined by the likes of Kanye West, Flloyd Mayweather, P.Diddy and our very own Florence Welch.

Check out footage of Kanye and HOVA on the mic, and pictures from the night below. It looked incredible!

An interesting source has surfaced on Twitter who appears intent on leaking everything he has this week.

His first track of choice is ‘Topless’ by Eminem which features Dr. Dre and Nas. There was an original version of this song featuring T.I. which surfaced a few years ago, but he has since been replaced with a Nas verse.

*UPDATE* This is rumoured to be taken from the upcoming Dre album ‘Detox’. On closer inspection Eminem has taken the role of Dre who has yet to record his verse. Interesting stuff!



Daft Punk ‘Tron: Legacy’ headphones by wearesme

Earlier in the year SME brought the Entourage news that Daft Punk would be producing the soundtrack to Disney’s sequel to 80’s cinematic classic ‘Tron’. Then, last month, SME gave you a 6 minute preview of the ‘Tron: Legacy’ score.

The Daft Punk/Tron collabo continues with the bad-man head-cans you see above. They’re the brainchild of audio company Monster, the same geezers (geezettes?) who gave us the serious Dr Dre headphones you’ve seen every Tom, Dick and Harry bustin’ on the Northern Line to work.

The headphones come with LED lights (as standard), an homage to the luminescent lighting that can be seen throughout the film franchises. SME will give you a knowing nod when you’re wearing them in a sweaty train carriage too.
