Snoop Lion announces superstar guests for new album!
The album is the first from Snoop under his new alias, with Diplo and his Major Lazer production crew pulling the album together and TI, Busta Rhymes, Akon and Popcaan and Mavado all lined-up for guest spots too, reports MTV.co.uk.
The artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg has released a statement about the record, revealing: "We were searching for true reggae music and the message of peace and hope it reflects.
"It's so much a part of who I am, and this record is all about paying homage and giving respect to those who created and love reggae music, and hopefully introducing it to a whole new audience,” shared the star.
"I feel truly honoured to make this album and respect to all who blazed the path for me."
Speculation of a Snoop Lion / Rita Ora collab was first hinted at in January, when the British beauty posted a series of snaps on her Instagram account of the pair shooting a music video in Thailand.
“Just talkin about some things that are probably gona surprise you...Thailand day 1 snoop #boddybambambam,” tweeted the blonde bombshell at the time.
