New Music: Snoop Dogg feat. Kim Burrell – ‘Sunshine Feel Good’

Snoop Dogg stays busy.

After dropping five gospel tracks and his 220 EP, the Long Beach legend returns with “Sunshine Feel Good,” a Kim Burrell collaboration off his upcoming album Bible of Love.

Produced by DJ Battlecat, the West Coast beat features a lowrider bounce, while Burrell provides a soulful assist. “Don’t front, you know this sunshine feels good in my hood,” she sings. “Sometimes you might feel alone / But don’t look now, it’s almost morning / Just let the sunshine in.”

Da Doggfather also reflects on dark versus light. “Was a time when a storm came in my life,” he raps. “Didn’t know which way to turn, to the left or right / Out the corner of my eye, saw a little light / Flickerin’ like a flame in the darkest night.”

Earlier this month, Coach Snoop dropped five gospel tracks off Bible of Love. Yesterday, he followed up with the 220 EP featuring Dreezy, Jacquees, and more.

Drake Plans to ‘Keep Helping’ After ‘God’s Plan’ Video

Drake made charitable waves, when he gave away close to $1 million in the heartfelt video for “God’s Plan.” Now, he plans to keep the good deeds coming.

Speaking with TMZ, Drizzy revealed that his latest video is close to his heart. “[It’s] actually the best thing I’ve ever done in my life, to be honest with you,” he said.

He also went on to explain how he plans on following up with more good deeds, even if they might not be part of a video. “I don’t know,” he remarked. “Just keep helping. That’s it.”

Jumping into his yellow LaFerrari, Drizzy was also asked if he had any special birthday wishes for ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Opting out of that b-day conversation, Drake simply smiled silently.

The 6 God has been vocal about the message behind “God’s Plan,” saying that he hopes fans can take on his random acts of kindness as an online challenge. “Go be kind in any way you can and let’s all watch the world be nice to each other even if it’s for 24 hours,” he wrote on Instagram.

“God’s Plan” recently topped the Hot 100 for a fourth week, extending his record with more than 75 million U.S. streams every week out thus far.

Atlanta: Robbin Season

Recently, Donald’s brother and the show’s executive producer Stephen Glover revealed what fans can expect and why the season has been given the “Robbin Season” nickname.

“It’s basically a bunch of crime,” he explained. “People have money and people need money. You might get your package stolen off your front porch. It’s a very intense and desperate time. We wanted to make that a backdrop to the season. We wanted to make a transition from their old lives to where they’re heading now.”

“Atlanta Robbin Season” premieres March 1 at 10 p.m. on FX.
