Snoop brings out the funk on the Pharrell-produced 'Peaches N Cream'

On May 12, Snoop Dogg will release his 13th album, and his first since his detour into reggae for 2013’s Reincarnated. Judging by the album’s title—BUSH—and its lead single “Peaches N Cream,” Snoop seems to have shifted his attention from Rastafarian spirituality to more earthly concerns.

“Peaches” finds Snoop reuniting with “Drop It Like It’s Hot” producer Pharrell Williams and features vocals by Gap Band vet Charlie Wilson, best known to today’s pop audience for delivering the massive hooks on Kanye’s “Bound 2.” Suitably for three old-school funk fans, the track has a booty-bumping beat, lighter-than-air roller-disco melodies, and lots and lots of good old-fashioned lasciviousness.
