Snoop Lion is going full throttle with his new outlook and musical direction, offering us yet another new reggae track for us to get our ears around. This time around he’s enlisted the help of some pretty big names with both Mavado and Popcaan featuring on the new track “Lighters Up.”
Major Lazer and Dre Skull get production credits on this one, with the heavy bass running throughout helping to fuse Snoop’s Hip-Hop roots to the laid back Reggae vibes. The trio all take a verse each, with a catchy chorus bringing it all together encouraging everyone from North, East, South and West to throw their lighters up – slightly ironic since Snoops known for only repping the West coast.
Snoop Lion’s album Reincarnation will be out in early 2013, with “Lighters Up” available on iTunes to buy on December 18th.
