Snoop Dogg releases 'anthem' for Prince William

What kind of wedding gift do you get the groom who has everything? How about a song celebrating his engagement?

In honor of Prince William's April 29, 2011, nuptials to Kate Middleton, Snoop Dogg has released "Wet," a song he thinks is perfect for the blueblood's bachelor party.

“When I heard the royal family wanted to have me perform in celebration of Prince William’s marriage, I knew I had to give them a little something,” explains 39-year-old Snoop in a statement. The rapper is reportedly among the entertainers being recruited by Prince Harry for his big brother's engagement blowout.

The lusty single - to be included on Snoop's March 2011 album "Doggumentary" - was released on the musician's official website at 4:20pm PST Tuesday, and Snoop is now asking fans to submit videos of themselves dancing to “Wet.”

The fan who gets the most views will win a trip to the U.K. to celebrate the song's release in royal fashion, according to a statement from EMI Music.

Says Snoop, "'Wet’ is the perfect anthem for Prince William or any playa to get the club smokin’.”

Queen Elizabeth would surely agree.

    WOW. Can you imagine Her Majesty walking into the bachelor party and hearing "Wet" booming on the old royal sound system, then a chronic'd up Snoop leaping down from the stage and trying to get Queenie to get her groove on? Fo shizzle!

    So I guess he was supposed to have asked no talent Taylor Swift to come? Everybody knows that as far as music goes, HIP-HOP RULES THE WORLD. By the way white people, Kanye has the #1 Album and I checked on Google and it said Prince William wants Kanye to come and perform 'Power'. Sorry HATERS this just isnt your week! LOL!

    I don't listen to Snoop's music or rap music for that matter, but I'm happy that he was invited. Time to change the royal's tradition and get with the modern times. Good for you Snoop!!

      Absolutley not it's not the best we can do, we have some of the best perfomrers the U.S. but what we have to remember is that they are YOUNG!!!! 90% of their of Ipods are entertainers from the US and most of it is Black rappers. That's what that generation listens to, I know I feel the same way, can we send differenct representation? I guess the most importnat is that Prince William will be happy and I hope he enjoys his celebration. SMDH

      So what if you're classically trained. This fight goes back to the old Disco days. Idiot dance music is all this is. I hated Disco back then, still do, its just a bad as rap/hiphop. I at least have a little respect for Disco–at least they could sing and play instruments.

      The only people saying anything bad about ROCK were the idiot christians and their clergy–saying it was the devil music. It was music taken from JAZZ, BLUES from the 20's-40's and it was great. On the other hand, rap is just a lazy way to celebrety status with out doing anything. Rap is what happends when you give an idiot a mic at a wedding reception.

    You're all kidding right? A rap song? Which initself is an oxymoron. Rap, music, and song shouldnt even be in the same sentance together. When will this crappy art form end? Its joke.

      Niya, only tin eared nobodys listen to rap–which you obviously are in that group. I will admit there are a lot of you. But that doesnt mean its a valid or acredited art form or music. It only sells because stupid people buy it.

      I agree with you that many rap "songs" should not be called that. Song implies melody, and some raps are pure rhythm. However, "rhythmic poem with accompaniment" is too long to say routinely, so people will go on calling these "songs."
      This is not an insult to rap, just a suggestion that it fits better into the cultural tradition of poetry than music, even though its roots are more deeply embedded in musical tradition.

    Smoking PCP is known as "getting wet."

      I don't get it.. but as someone pointed out earlier, "They are young, and this what the younger people are listening to right now." I seriously doubt "Lizzie" will bust a move at the Bachelor Party, and we'll see if Prince Charles shows up with his gay lover....er....I mean.... his wife Camilla....yeah I meant Camilla....

      he isn't singing at the WEDDING, he's singing at what we would call the bachelor party! "Wet" is the perfect anthem for a bachelor party. LOL

      Hey Joe: we got to remember that they are YOUNG! And when they did a story on what do the Princes listen to on their Ipods 90% of was music from the U.S. and a lot of Black rappers. They are young and that's what they listen to. I'm not a rap fan either SMDH!

      He is banned from the UK and Australia. If you have a felony on your record you're not allowed in. I am sure Prince Harry will work a deal out with his G-Ma to get the DOGG in!

      Do you really think if the Queen and the Prince wants him to perform at the Prince's Bachelors' party that he wouldn't be allowed to. I guess Money talks in England too.

      He is banned but this morning they said they are making an exception because Prince Williams/Prince Harry has personally requested that he be there for the bachlor's party.
