Snoop Dogg enlisted the vocal talents of Marty James for the chorus of his new single “New Year’s Eve” and the presence of his wife Shante Broadus for the song’s music video. Head below to watch the Doggfather get romantic in the black and white clip.
“New Year’s Eve” serves as the first single off Snoop’s upcoming 11th studio album Doggumentary Music, which is due out in March 2011. Dylan “Pook” Brown, who previously shot Snoop’s ode to True Blood‘s leading lady “Oh Sookie,” took up directing duties here, as well.
“My special lady, only one of a kind / I never seen it coming, I guess love is blind,” Snoop raps on the lovey-dovey jam. We’re loving this sensitive side of the hip hop superstar, the swirling synths in the tune and the vintage-looking vid.
