For the first time in thirty years, Snoop Dogg has announced he is collaborating on brand-new music with Dr. Dre.
Earlier this year, the duo performed at the Super Bowl Halftime Show alongside Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige and 50 Cent. Now, the rapper revealed on the red carpet at the LA premiere of his latest film, 'Day Shift' that they were collaborating once more the previous night.
“We’re cooking up a little something,” he told ET Online. “I don’t wanna talk about it too much, but we’re back together again. It’s been 30 years since we worked on a record, and we’re doin’ something, we’re workin’ on something.”
Snoop contributed to Dr. Dre's 1992 album ‘The Chronic’ and his 1991 debut solo single 'Deep Cover'. The duo collaborated on Dr. Dre's 1999 album ‘2001’ as well.
It follows Dre's previous statement that he has been working on at least a dozen albums' worth of material over the past two years.
Meanwhile, Snoop discussed his most recent project, ‘Bad Decisions,’ which he worked on alongside Benny Blanco and BTS.
“Hey, I just try to stay active,” Snoop said of the team-up. “The youngsters, they reach out, they call me… I’m all about music. One thing about me, I don’t like being boxed in. I like being a part of every genre of music so when they reach out and call, I’ll usually say yeah.”
Jungkook, Jimin, V and Jin from BTS as well as Snoop all contribute vocals to the new single.
It was released last week along with a clip showing Blanco eagerly getting ready for a BTS concert by baking them a cake and making a detailed heart collage. He is notified that he is a day early when he gets to the venue.
