Snoop's "Ego" trip moves up on calendar
( AP ) - With the video for "Sensual Seduction" as its lead-in, Snoop Dogg's new album, "Ego Trippin'," has been bumped to a March 11 release by Interscope, which originally planned to put it out in May.
Beyond "Seduction," which is No. 8 this week on the Billboard Hot 100, the 20-track album goes retro on "Hollywood Nights," which showcases swanky piano, fat horns and the cartoonish chorus "Those Hollywood nights/they drive me crazy."
Opener "Press Play" samples the Isley Brothers' "Atlantis." On "Never Have to Worry," Snoop recounts his life story over a lush background of piano, saxophone and bass; and "Make It Good" admonishes men who are scared of commitment.
