Snoop Lion Gets ‘Reincarnated’ with Drake, Chris Brown, & Rita Ora

Snoop Lion

Snoop Lion is setting out on his journey to reincarnation and bringing a few friends along for the ride. The rapper-turned-reggae star has called on Drake, Chris Brown, Rita Ora, and more for his upcoming album Reincarnated.

The reggae and dancehall-influenced album is due April 23 with Diplo and the Major Lazer production team serving as executive producers. It will be available for pre-order on iTunes on April 2.

Reincarnated boasts appearances from Drake, Chris Brown, T.I., Busta Rhymes, Akon, and Rita Ora, as well as dancehall stars Popcaan and Mavado. Tracks include “Lighters Up,” “Here Comes the King,” “La, La, La,” “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,” “Harder Times,” and “No Guns Allowed,” which is slated to be the next single off Reincarnated. The personal song features Snoop’s daughter, Cori B., and has a hopeful and peaceful message.

“We were searching for true reggae music and the message of peace and hope it reflects,” said Snoop. “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. I feel truly honored to make this album and respect to all who blazed the path for me.”

Snoop will also release a companion documentary, which opens in select cities on March 15. Watch the trailer below.

    What? How can he not include Rihanna or The Marleys? Not sure how Chris Brown or Drake will give him that “real reggae” sound. I’m anxious to see what Rita can do though.
