Snoop Dogg, Charlie Wilson & Justin Timberlake - Signs (Polydor)
UK release date: 25 April 2005
He may have made it acceptable for people to put 'izzle' on the end of their sentences, but there's no denying that Snoop Dogg has the funk. Signs is taken from the Dogg's recent album R & G: Rhythm and Gangster - The Masterpiece and, while not being anything particularly deep, is a whole heap of fun.
Justin Timberlake dons the same pair of tight underpants he used to successful effect with the Black Eyed Peas and his contribution will no doubt help this become nigh on ubiqitious over the next few months. Snoop's rap is as expertly laid-back as ever and the song even gets away with mentioning "Venus and Serena in the Wimbledon arena" without sounding silly.
Basically, it's going to be huge, so get used to it. It also features Mr Timberlake saying the 'f' word. Tsk, whatever next? Britney having sex? Oh...
