Snoop Lion’s latest single “Lighters Up” takes us even deeper into his new reggae persona, with features from Mavado and Popcaan. Listen below.
“Lighters Up” follows “La La La” and “Here Comes The King,” the first two tracks from Snoop’s upcoming album Reincarnation, which is being produced by Major Lazer.
Snoop admits that it took time for some of his close friends, like Dr. Dre, to understand his new identity. “He would see me come to rehearsals with all of my Rastafari, my gear, my hair, my look. He was just peeping me out, and I let him know I was doing a reggae project and working on the album and whatnot, but he didn’t really understand it until ‘La La La’ came out,” Snoop told MTV News.
“Now he understands that I’m fully with it and I’m all in it to win it. So he gets it, and I got his support. He just didn’t understand it because I didn’t explain it to him. I wasn’t tryna keep it a secret; it just wasn’t time to unveil until now.”
