Dr. Dre is still on the long comeback trail for unreleased album Detox, and he’s just premiered new single “Die Hard” featuring Eminem. It’s the third single from his new set, but can he match up to previous hits?

Today Last.fm Trends is looking at his solo scrobbles to see how his new material is holding up, and if “Die Hard” could smash his charts.

Dre’s six-month top tracks are all from second album 2001, much like the last time we looked. Singles sit alongside album tracks, suggesting fans enjoy the release as a comprehensive package – and that Dre’s new material may really shoot up the charts whenever Detox gets its release.

If “Die Hard” can continue the trend, it may be able to break 2001‘s rule on the charts without an album to back it up.
