Snoop Dogg assumes the role of an engaging party host on Algorithm, a new project featuring the likes of Usher, Mary J. Blige, and Wiz Khalifa. The album celebrates old-school hip-hop while spotlighting both legendary and rising talent, and everyone brought their A-game when it came to lyrics. Here are some of our favorite lines from Algorithm!
“Everybody feel it, Mike Myers with the mic how I kill it…”
Redman nods to one of the most iconic horror movies of all time on ‘Alright,’ giving a shoutout to Michael Myers from Halloween! We love the reference and the confidence on this line, and we can’t wait to listen to ‘Alright’ during the Halloween season next year.
“Whether Michael or Selena, or Donnie, or Anita / I could count on her for new grooves when I needed…”
‘New Oldie’ is a powerhouse collab between Eric Bellinger, Snoop Dogg, and Usher, and Eric delivered our favorite lyric from this one! His verse looks back to his childhood memories of listening to music with his mom and shouts out Michael Jackson, Selena Quintanilla, Donnie Osmond, and Anita Baker.
“Control it, that’s called anxiety / But anyway, get your money, baby…”
Snoop Dog’s intro on MALAYA’s track ‘Anxiety’ offers a reaffirming message for anyone dealing with anxiety. Push past whatever is holding you back and focus on achieving the success you’ve dreamed about!
“Give me gold when I shine, I’m just inspiration for your day…”
Another one of our favorite lyrics comes from MALAYA’s second song on the project, ‘Inspiration!’ We love the confidence she offers on this track and how her light vocals contrast the song’s beat.
“When I enter the turf, when I pull up, people gather around me like an ice cream truck…”
We love E-40’s verse on MOUNT WESTMORE’s ‘Big Subwoofer,’ and this lyric is just the cherry on top. Everyone knows the excitement of chasing down an ice cream truck, so this imagery is something anyone can connect with!
“I really wanna see you grow, but please let me know / I’ll give you whatever you want, I’m with whatever you on…”
JANE HANDCOCK shows support to an ex she wants to get back together with on ‘Whatever You On,’ and we love the song’s encouraging messages. It’s a testament to personal growth and self-improvement no matter what life throws at you.
