Snoop Dogg has released a funky new track called "Peaches N Cream." The Pharrell Williams-produced track also features singer Charlie Wilson and offers up some sweet, vintage sounds.
Led by a four-to-the-floor beat and guitar upstrokes, the single allows Snoop Dogg to dive in to his Funkadelic influence. As he yells, "Freak don't fail me now," (a reference to "One Nation Under A Groove") we remember a time in the early '90s when Snoop Dogg was a huge part in G-funk's rise to prominence, most notably sampling George Clinton's "Atomic Dog" and Parliament's "Mothership Connection." He also performed alongside George Clinton and Bootsy Collins in 2005, so it's hardly a new look for him. We're glad to see him return to his roots with this new single.
The track receives fitting visuals too. Snoop, Pharrell, and Wilson all make appearances in psychedelic space as the animated scenery properly compliments the retro tune.
Snoop Dogg is gearing up for the release of his thirteenth studio album in May. Titled Bush, the 10-track LP is produced entirely by Pharrell. The two have collaborated on a fair amount of material in the past, including smash hits like "Drop It Like It's Hot" and "Beautiful."
