A pairing we might not have expected to see collaborate is legendary rapper, Snoop Dogg and singer and songwriter, Becky G . Snoop and Becky were spotted out in Los Angeles on Wednesday teaming up for an exciting project with the award-winning Mexican band, Banda MS. We might not have ever thought we’d see these three collaborate but we’re not mad about it.
The 49-year-old rapper and 23-year-old singer were shooting the music video for Banda MS’ single “Qué Maldición”. The single was originally released back in early May. Banda MS is a 15 member band that was originally founded in 2003.
For the video, Snoop and Becky were coordinating in plaid outfits. The rapper wore an oversized blue and white plaid shirt that was buttoned up to the top paired with dark blue jeans. He accessorized with a black hat and sunglasses. The “Shower” singer wore a cropped multi-colored plaid shirt over a white cropped tank paired with baggy khaki pants and a Dickies belt.
The pair was photographed posing on set alongside the frontmen of Band MS, Alan Ramirez and Oswaldo Silvas. Reportedly, the 23-year-old also filmed a scene by herself where she carried a bouquet of Daisies and a yellow suitcase on the street, according to the Daily Mail.
In addition to this music video appearance, Becky G has been busy working on her own music career. In late October, the 23-year-old singer released the single with an accompanying music video, “No Drama” with Ozuna, a Puerto Rican reggaeton and Latin trap singer.
“I love this collab with Ozuna,” the singer told Rolling Stone. “I have always liked his music and I knew that together we could record something amazing. Now, perhaps more than ever before in our lives, less drama is something we all need, and this was part of the inspiration for the song,” she continued.
2020 has been quite the year for the young singer regarding award nominations. The 23-year-old was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for Best Urban Song (“Muchacha,” her collaboration with Gente de Zona), an American Music Award for Favorite Female Latin Artist, and a People’s Choice Award for Latin Artist of 2020, according to Rolling Stone.
In regards to what Snoop has been up to, the rapper just launched The Snoop Song Contest which is a competition that asks applicants to submit their music to an iconic panel of judges. The winner will be featured on a song with Snoop himself, according to Hip Hop DX. The contest will run from November 12 until February 2021. The legendary D-O-Double-G is always finding ways to stay busy and continue to be innovative.
