The former duo had reunited for Dr. Dre's Detox album, but their chemistry quickly spilled over into The R.E.D. Album. Glad to have Dr. Dre back in his corner, Game quickly agreed to have his album pushed back. Dr. Dre soon had to hand the project over to Pharrell.
Game and Pharrell became fast friends and this led to Game being signed to his label. Once Dr. Dre returned, Game joined a joint-venture between Star Trak and Aftermath. The album was pushed back from a December release to a February release. Soon, the album was pushed back again to a March release. However, the March 23 date came and went without an album from Game.
With questions beginning to rise about his new album, Game announced that The R.E.D. Album will likely be released before the end of the summer.
