That is exactly what happened when he introduced me to BUSH, the latest from Snoop Dogg produced by Pharrell. SWAN calls the sound "disco funk", in which Pharrell gave Snoop track after track that worked well with his flow. One of the things I love most about the project is the number of classic artists that appear on the album. You get energy from T.I., Kenrick Lamar, Stevie Wonder, Gwen Stefani, Rick Ross, Justin Timberlake and of course, Uncle Charlie Wilson. Everyone plays their part well to create Snoop's 13th album.

BUSH first made its way onto my running playlist with "This City" and soon after, "California Roll" became that jam. Pharrell managed to bring Snoop Dogg and Stevie Wonder together in perfection. It really is a great example of how California rolls.
Nia Long joins Snoop, Pharrell and Stevie Wonder in the video for "California Roll". If you know me at all, you know I LOVE this video! I love studying Ancient Egypt and this video is full of images from antiquity. Nia rocks the 1940s look and the Goddess look with ease. From a slick do with a cute hat to the fullness of her hair as an Egyptian goddess, her styling is great. I also love the well placed message, "Be A Living, Breathing Goddess." Perfection!
