Snoop Dogg recently announced plans to release a new album this year. Bush will be the California rapper’s first time rapping under his old moniker since 2011’s Doggumentary. He went by the name Snoop Lion with 2013’s Reincarnated.
Snoop will reunite with “Drop It Like It’s Hot” collaborator Pharrell Williams. The album is expected to arrive in March via the producer’s label, I Am Other, and Columbia Records. It will reportedly feature collaborations with Stevie Wonder and Charlie Wilson.
“It’s a great record for me, and Pharrell did [it] from top to bottom,” Snoop told MTV News last year. “It feels good and I’m happy to be back in the studio working with one of my favorite producers and homeboys. It’s different—it’s completely different than anything we’ve ever done. It feels good, sounds good, looks good.”
Pharrell also seemed pretty convinced that the album would make waves. While talking with Power 106 last summer, he stated, “Snoop’s album is better than mine. You’re gonna bug out from the approach of what we did. We’re almost done. The songs are done. Now I’m just adding the finishing touches.”
The project will reportedly have a theme, but Pharrell wouldn’t spill. “I’m so proud of Snoop. It’s so jammin’. It’s one of those things where it’s so obvious that you kind of overlook it. It’s so obvious,” he teased.
The album’s lead single “Peaches N Cream” is expected to arrive shortly.
