Snoop Lion | New Song, “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” feat. Miley Cyrus
Did you have to do a double take when you read this headline? Well, this sort of collaboration deserves a triple take! Yes… Snoop Lion (c’mon now, you’re still Snoop Dogg) and Miley Cyrus collaborate on a reggae-inspired tune titled “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,” a cut off Snoop Lion’s upcoming 12th studio album Reincarnation (due April 23). This is the first time I’ve ever devoted a post to the former Hannah Montana in my blog, mainly because I can’t stand her. However, she is on this mission to rebrand her image and music style and we are slowly seeing elements of it. Surprisingly, I ain’t mad at this song. I’m actually grooving to it! “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” easily brings you back to the Caribbean with its traditional rhythm and sound, but underlined with a catchy pop hook. The producers really made Miley’s voice work for this track. Expect to hear more from Miley soon, as she’s been in the studio with the likes of Tyler, the Creator, Mary J. Blige, will.i.am, and others for what she calls her biggest album yet. What do you think of the collab?
