Snoop Dogg's "Boom" Hits Radio
Fri, 04 Mar 2011 15:11:20
Global icon, weed aficionado and ultimately stylin' freak Snoop Dogg released his new single, "Boom," to radio. The track, as well as its accompanying video, features T-Pain singing an undeniably catchy hook. Holla!
"Boom" is the second official single from the forthcoming and highly anticipated Doggumentary, due out on March 29th. Produced by hitmaker Scott Storch, the infectious song uses a recognizable sample from the '80s hit "Situation" by Yaz. The video, directed by Dylan Brown (who also directed Snoop's videos for "New Year's Eve" and "Wet") will make its debut on March 8th, the same day it will be available on iTunes. Mark your calendars, kiddies.
Snoop's first single, "Wet," is also still going strong at radio. Super producer and arguably the most well known DJ in the world, David Guetta, felt compelled to put his own spin on the track after listening and instantly loving it. Guetta's version of "Wet" will not only be available on the international version of Doggumentary but also as a bonus track on US digital album exclusively on iTunes.
Doggumentary is comprised of 21 solid tracks, including the buzzworthy "Platinum" featuring R. Kelly, which is currently available digitally. The album features production from heavyweights such as Kanye West (who also lends a verse to his track), Lex Luger, Scoop DeVille, Scott Storch and more. Guest appearances include some surprising names like Bootsy Collins, Gorillaz and Willie Nelson and some other musical notables such as Jeezy, E-40, Wiz Khalifa and John Legend.
To promote Doggumentary, Snoop has wisely conceptualized the album's title. By aligning his social media prowess with his creative output, Snoop is "doggumenting" the album's progress online. He has already launched the much discussed #PuffPuffPassTuesdays campaign, where he releases exclusive visual and audio content to his 2.8 million Twitter followers and 6.8 million Facebook friends every week. Next, unprecedented access to Snoop's inner circle is granted via his frequent Ustream sessions. These afford millions of fans across the globe the opportunity to log-in and interact with Snoop live, as he streams new music.
