Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre are preparing to release their long-awaited album, and they've already got a date in mind.
The Death Row Records owner gave away a big hint about the target release date on Tuesday night, February 7. Snoop took to Instagram to reflect on his decades-long friendship with the Aftermath founder after recently celebrating his Global Impact Award from the Recording Academy's Black Music Collective. In his post, he included a throwback photo of him and Dre while giving fans an update on their upcoming Missionary album.
"Dynamic. Duo. Music comin summer 23," Snoop wrote.
Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre have been working on the album for quite some time. Following their award-winning performance at last year's Super Bowl halftime show, Dre and Snoop were spotted together in the studio on several occasions, including one time with Eminem. Back in August, Snoop first confirmed that he and Dre were working on "something."
“[Dre and I] are cooking up a little something,” Snoop told Entertainment Tonight. “I don’t wanna talk about it too much, but we’re back together again. It’s been 30 years since we worked on a record, and we’re doin’ something, we’re workin’ on something.”
A few months later, Snoop confirmed that he and Dre were hard at work on their upcoming album Missionary. The LP, which is exclusively produced by the seasoned beatmaker, will arrive just in time for the 30th anniversary of his debut album Doggystyle.
“I’ma tell you this, you’re the first one to hear this," Snoop told Stephen A. Smith. "Me and Dr. Dre have been working on an album for the past two months,” he said at the time. “And it’ll be done in November. It’s produced by Dr. Dre, it’s our 30th anniversary to Doggystyle. And the name of the album is Missionary.”
Look out for Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre's new album coming this summer.
