Snoop and Anita Baker to Duo in Studio
When it comes to making music, Snoop Dogg is known, not only for his affinity for different genres, but also his attraction to different eras. Take, for example, last year’s eccentric hit, “Sensual Seduction,” which was a nostalgic ode to the retro soul and funk sound coming out of the 70s and into the 80s. Snoop has also worked with old school R&B artists like Charlie Wilson who performed on "Signs" and The Dramatics, who appeared on "Doggy Dogg World".
Snoop will now add Anita Baker to the list of successful and respected pioneers which he has worked with. The eight-time Grammy winner and multi-platinum artist is planning to release her seventh studio album next spring, and told Billboard.com that Snoop will be featured on an adaptation of Curtis Mayfield’s “Give Me Your Love (Love Song)” from the Superfly soundtrack.
“We do it in a very contemporary way,” Baker explained, “a very grown-up way.”
In addition to praising Snoop for the growth in his music, Baker also expressed her pleasant surprise at Snoop Dogg’s relationship with his wife.“It’s lovely, who knew that Snoop is madly in love with his wife, you know?"
