Marsha Ambrosius Says That Her And Dr. Dre's "Trauma Bond" Is Their New Album

Marsha Ambrosius is getting ready to release her latest album, Casablanco, which was produced by Dr. Dre and, according to Ambrosius, was born out of their “trauma link” as they both experienced personal issues at the time.

On February 2 in Los Angeles, the duo held a listening session for the project, and they both took the time to discuss the procedure.

“End of 2020, Dre and myself were going back and forth, shooting each other ideas,” the Floetry singer began. “And January 2021 happens and I’m pretty sure everyone got the text alert. Sorry to bring up your personal but we all saw it. It was Dr. Dre’s brain aneurysm and I remember my heart stopped and I’m calling everyone.”

She continued: “I’m like, ‘Yo fool, what happened?’ [They’re like] ‘Everything is okay. Relax, calm down. Dre is okay.’ I get a call from Dre and by February 2021, I was out working with him. So his rehab, his rehabilitation and resurgence back into wanting to make music to make people feel good was what I needed. Ultimately, what he needed. And this album was kind of our trauma bond in some way.”

Dr. Dre said that while the sessions were initially intended to create music for him, they ended up becoming something entirely else.

“And the way it started out was she actually flew down to work on some songs for me,” Dre said. “And all of a sudden I’m like okay let’s work on some songs for you. Let’s work on three or four songs and all of a sudden that turned into an entire album over a two-week period.”

The initiative was first introduced by Dre and Marsha in December 2021, which was just over a year ago.
