Beyonce's Houston tribute is actually an interpolation of the chorus of "Still D.R.E." a 1999 track recorded by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, which Jay penned for the two rappers. I'm representin' for them gangstas all across the world
(Still) Hittin' them corners in them lo-lo's, girl
(Still takin' my time to perfect the beat
And I still got love for the streets, it's the D.R.E.)
Dre from Cool & Dre, who supplied the soothing production, commented to Billboard
: "We thought it was the coolest s--t in the world. It was f---ing awesome that 17 years later, Beyoncé is doing the same lines. It's definitely a nod to the legacy of the record, and it's pretty f---ing cool."
