“Sexual Eruption,” “Sensual Seduction” no matter how you label the song title, we can’t stop watching Snoop Dogg‘s new video. He’s having so much fun with it. The clip, inspired by the late-’70s/early ’80s, is a direct homage to R&B generals such as Rick James and Roger Troutman and you can’t forget the sprinkle of Prince.
“To me, that is something I always loved doing: emulating the guys I wanted to be like,” Snoop said. “Roger Troutman is one of the guys who influenced me as a kid, as well as Rick James and Prince. With the video, I wanted to add those elements to it, and by having that sound in the song, it complements the video by showing we can still do that and bring it back to life. I love going back and flashing and showing I can get back in that era. I’m going to hip so many young guys onto that style of music who don’t know about it.”
