Downtown
by Kem

Album: Promise To Love (2014)
  • Kem recruited Snoop Dogg to spit some verses on this track after he saw the rapper and 2 Chainz singing his hit "I Can't Stop Loving You" on Snoop's Double G News Network. "I was going to do the rap on it," Kem told Billboard magazine. "But after I saw that segment, I thought, why not get Snoop? He's clever and I'm a fan of his 'Sensual Seduction.' I felt there was something there that would allow him to help me make 'Downtown' special."
