Songfacts®:

  • Snoop recorded this song for the DreamWorks animated movie Turbo, in which he voices the snail character Smoove Move. "That song came about because [DreamWorks Animation CEO] Jeffrey Katzenberg wanted something to end the movie with a lot of electricity and energy," Snoop told Rolling Stone.
    "[It's] something different from what's usually associated with Snoop Dogg," he added. "It's something upbeat that everyone in the house can enjoy.
    "I'm on my old-school rap style there: we took sounds from the '80s like an 808 bass to give it that 'Planet Rock' and 'Going Back to Cali' feel. It was about paying homage, while at the same time taking the movie to the next level."
