The Super Bowl Halftime show brought together several GOATS on one stage. Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Mary J. Blige all brought a medley of their greatest hits and some dream collaborations between the 1st and 2nd half of this year’s big game.

During the legendary performance, the iconic Still D.R.E song was revisited with Dr. Dre performing the piano himself. The video for Dr. Dre‘s ‘Still D.R.E.’ featuring Snoop Dogg has now hit one billion views on YouTube. The spike in view count is of course due to the pair’s Super Bowl performance last weekend which shows how influential it was.

The HD remastered version for “Still D.R.E.” was added to the site in 2011. The song’s production was provided by a trio of legends in Dr. Dre himself, Scott Storch and Mel-Man. Famously, the entire song was written by JAY-Z. Hova could be seen jamming along to the song in attendance at the Super Bowl.

Additionally, Dre, who has over 5 million YouTube subscribers. The channel has reached 454 million views on his comparatively recent music video for “I Need A Doctor” with Eminem and Skylar Grey. The achievement is testament to the importance of “Still D.R.E.” for the entire genre.

The memories from the memorable half time show are still fresh. We’ll have to see how long it takes for another huge collaboration of greats to assemble on stage like some kind of hip-hop Avengers.
