Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s classic hit record “Still D.R.E.” recently hit a huge milestone, finally amassing a billion listens on Spotify.

With this new milestone, the two have finally entered into Spotify’s “Billions Club” playlist which features other songs with a billion streams form artists such as Travis Scott, Roddy Ricch, Kendrick Lamar, Cardi B, Drake, and more.
Shortly after the halftime performance, a video went viral of Jay-Z rapping the track word from word. It is no seccret that Hov wrote both Dre’s and Snoop’s parts. He even spoke more in depth about it during a guest appearance on LeBron James HBO show, The Shop.
“On that reference track, I’m doing Dre and Snoop’s vocals,” Hov said.
“The reference track it sounds like them. The Foxy [Brown] reference I’m glad nobody can find that one. But you gotta have somewhat a reverence for them.” Jay added: “In order for me to really nail the essence of Dre and Snoop it had to be like a studied reverence of what they were doing. Even to put myself in their shoes. ‘Cause think about that record. That record comes after Dre leaves Death Row. How? My last album was The Chronic.”
