New Music Video: Snoop Lion & Collie Buddz

December 24, 2013

Bermudian singer Collie Buddz recently collaborated with American recording artist Snoop Lion — formerly known as Snoop Dogg — for a song on his latest album “Reincarnated”.

The song was released earlier this year, and the music video was posted online yesterday [Dec 23].

The song is featured on a 12-track album, which also features collaborations with Mavado, Busta Rhymes, Mr Vegas, British pop singer Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus, Akon, and Canadian rapper Drake.

Snoop first emerged in 1993 with the hugely successful album “Doggystyle”, and has a string of hits including Gin & Juice, What’s My Name and many more.

Last year he converted to Rastafarianism, following his spiritual journey to Jamaica. Speaking to the Guardian, he said Rastafarianism has changed him. “I used to answer hate with hate. Like if you hate me, I hate you more. But now I answer hate with love,” he said.

The conversion was not well recieved by everyone, with Bunny Wailer — a former member of Bob Marley and the Wailers — telling TMZ Snoop has engaged in “outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community’s personalities and symbolism”.

The album is the twelfth studio album by the American recording artist, and the first under his moniker Snoop Lion. “Reincarnation” debuted at number one on Billboard’s Reggae Album Chart, and at number 16 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, selling 21,301 copies in its first week.

The music video also shows scenes of Bermuda, with Collie Buddz shown on Court Street:

Collie Buddz is one of the most successful musicians the island has ever produced. His demo track, “Come Around” became very popular in the reggae scenes of Europe, U.K, USA and Jamaica, and lead to his relationship with the international powerhouse recording label Sony.

He was signed to the recording label and his self entitled album Collie Buddz was released in 2007. His videos were featured on international radio and television stations, and his debut single ‘Come Around’ was ranked #1 on the BBC Radio’s UK dancehall chart.

In recent years he has left Sony, formed his own record label and continues to release new music to great reception.

His music career has lead him to tour dozens of nations worldwide including Austria, Barbados, Belgium, Belize, Britain, Canada, Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, Dubai, England, Germany, Guam, Guyana, Italy, Jamaica, Finland, France, Japan, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, St. Croix, Tortola, Trinidad, Qatar, USA and even the tiny Pacific nation of Vanuatu.

    Weird how weed is illegal and yet it is heavily promoted in music here and on the radio! Let’s stop being hypocritical about it! Either stop promoting it or make it legal! We are sending too many mixed signals to an already confused population!
