Song: Gangsta Luv [ft. The-Dream]
Artist: Snoop Dogg
Album: Malice in Wonderland
Producer: The-Dream
Label: Priority Records
Notes: 1st single from LP
Analysis: Snoop decided to play it a little bit safer with his latest lead single. Unlike the stripped-out classic ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’, or the auto-tuned disco-flaired weirdness of ‘Sexual Eruption’, ‘Gangsta Luv’ is a more straightforward pop rap dance track. Not much different than many other The-Dream produced/featured songs, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The-Dream is one of the better R&B personalities on the radio these days, and he knows how to make a hit. Snoop continues to ignore his age, to our benefit. He’s just trying to make fun music, and while ‘Gangsta Luv’ is nothing original, or even surprising, it’s one of the better new songs you’re going to hear on the dancefloor this winter.
