The first single from Snoop Dogg’s upcoming LP, Ego Trippin’ (tentatively scheduled for a March 2008 release), recently leaked and it’s surely going to instigate some discussion. The Dogg Father took to the lab with Pharrell in the summer and announced his desire to record album featuring only himself. He apparently drew inspiration through an unsuspecting source – Amy Winehouse.
Standard hip-hop albums typically feature a multitude of guest appearances. Snoop Dogg’s attempt to work overtime on his new venture will add a new dimension to a career that has seen many critical peaks and valleys along the way. Whether he’ll be able to pull this off remains to be seen.
“Sensual Seduction” is the name of the single. The video is fresh out of 1977, and features Mr. Broadus wearing multiple musical hats. He offers up his best Roger Troutman and R. Kellyimpression throughout most of the song while dancing around in various vintage disco suits holding a keytar. The special effects are rugged for sure, but the song will melt the ice of a glacier in the dead of winter.
I can’t believe I just spent three paragraphs previewing this track? I honestly don’t even know if this is a serious cut or something meant to be a joke. Either way, it’s a little Friday morning fun for the whole family to enjoy.
You don’t love me, you just love my doggystyle…
