Snoop Dogg Previews Pharrell Collaboration: Watch

Snoop: Drop It (Like It's Hot)
Gangsta rap superstar Snoop Dogg teased a new song featuring Pharrell during a recent vlog. To disco-era electric guitar licks, Pharrell sings blissful praises to a strain of medical marijuana, called moon rock – not to be mistaken for MDMA in its purest form, which is also referred to as “moon rock.” As Snoop belts along to Pharrell’s lyrics, he makes sure that much is clear as he motions to and rolls a blunt of his own weed.

Earlier this year, Snoop Dogg had Pharrell appear on his online talk show GGN. The first topic that Snoop Dogg brought up were Pharrell’s appearances on Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories, which could easily have inspired their recent, unreleased collaboration.

Then again, as Snoop alluded to on the intro (“This ain’t even a special guest right here. This is my brother”), these two have collaborated for more than a decade now. “Signs,” off Snoop’s 2004 album R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece, was produced by The Neptunes, featured Charlie Wilson and Justin Timberlake, and was just as much of a disco throwback as his latest song with Pharrell.

Iggy Azalea And Rita Ora Look Smokin’ Hot In Their “Black Widow” Video: Morning Mix

:: Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora have been snapped on the set of their Kill Bill-themed “Black Widow” video wearing leather bodysuits. Needless to say, the blond bombshells look completely amazing. [Rap-Up]

:: Fresh from sampling Miley Cyrus on new single “Hunger Of The Pine”, Alt-J are turning their talents to cinema. The British trio has scored a new short film called Wander With Me, which is described as a coming of age story. [NME]

:: Snoop Dogg is the poster man (?) for marijuana, so it’s not that surprising that he sparked up a joint in the bathroom of the White House. Amazingly, security was fooled by the rapper saying he needed to “burn something” because he was doing “a number two”. Words escape me. [MTV]

:: The concert event of 2014 is almost upon us. Mariah Carey has hinted at a looming world tour in a post on her newly overhauled website. This is amazing news for thirsty Lambs and connoisseurs of fine music. [Vibe]

Slip on your shades, grab a glass of lemonade and check back each weekday over the next week and a half as we present you each Song Of The Summer contender.

There is no doubt that the contenders in our Song Of The Summer competition are incredibly catchy, but this entry takes it to the next level! After releasing a list of hits over the past five years, Jason Derulo is back again to take on the summer months with his party anthem “Wiggle.” From award show performances to viral videos, the latest single from the R&B singer has sparked a fire that puts everyone in the dancing mood.

Jason Derulo is no stranger to to the Pop and R&B worlds, as he made his debut with his eponymous album in 2010.

PSY On His “Hangover” Video, Snoop Dogg & Upcoming Collaborations: Idolator Interview

PSY Hangover Idolator interview video snoop dogg
PSY Speaks!
It’s not all fun, games and horsey dancing being a K-pop artist-turned-Internet sensation. Since PSY’s “Gangnam Style” video reached 2 billion views on YouTube last month, he has been too busy promoting his new single, “Hangover,” to really celebrate. “I’m still looking for the chance to have a party,” the Korean rapper tells Idolator.

We sat down for a chat with PSY at YouTube Space LA about “Gangnam Style’s” ongoing success and his hiatus from K-pop, given this new collaboration with Snoop Dogg. “I cannot beat ‘Gangnam Style’ anyway,” PSY explained of his current transition to rap. “I cannot beat that song forever.”

The “Hangover” video, which features PSY and Snoop gallivanting around South Korea getting non-Gangnam style wasted, has reached over 8.5 million hits since it premiered on Sunday (June 8) night. To fully recap the boozing, puking, karaoke-filled, plaid suit-styed video is to take away the full experience from first-timers, so make some time in your Monday to fit in a view. (Warning: if you have an actual hangover, this video may escalate your situation.) More »

PSY And Snoop Dogg’s “Hangover” Video: Review Revue

Bottoms Up!
The art of getting drunk is nothing to joke about. It requires skill, determination and acute precision. While  mastered only by a lucky, select few, South Korean singer PSY and hip-hop kingpin Snoop Dogg seem to have truly aced the art form in their latest collab single, “Hangover.”

The new hit, which comes with a video of the dynamic duo taking drunkenly to the streets of South Korea, certainly has the Internet feeling buzzed.

Here is what a few folks in the music world had to say about the track.

PSY’s “Hangover” Video: Watch Him Get Hammered With Snoop Dogg

Ready For A Splitting Headache?
At this rate, South Korean rapper PSY is averaging one (hit) single a year. But what does that matter when one of those, “Gangnam Style,” has now garnered 2 billion views on YouTube alone?

Following up with last year’s “Gentleman,” PSY is back in action with brand new buzz single “Hangover.” Maybe we should make that buzzed single? Or just fall-down, sloppy, puke-in-the-gutter drunk. Either way, Snoop Dogg is along for the ride, and the two rappers proceed to get hammered, pick up two middle-aged ladies and go skipping off in an intoxicated stupor down the streets of Korea.

And did I mention the twerking video vixens all throughout this gem? No? Well, watch above. More »

PSY & Snoop Dogg’s “Hangover” Video To Precede Official Single And Album Release Later This Year

PSEXY!
Have you been keeping track of “Gangnam Style” sensation PSY? Because you should be. The YouTube views for his 2012 global mega-smash just crept past 2 billion, and his follow-up hit “Gentleman,” released last spring, isn’t doing too shabbily either (unless, of course, you consider nearly 691,000,000 views subpar).

And just when you thought the Korean superstar was about to slip out of sight for good, here he comes again with a new anthem/video to impress upon the masses: this time in the form of the Snoop Dogg-featuring “Hangover.” Directly following the NBA Finals game on Sunday (June 8), PSY and Snoop are scheduled to appear on a special primetime episode of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live at 8 p.m. ET, to debut a clip from the song’s music video.
