This is the first single by Californian rapper Snoop Dogg, from his eleventh studio album, Doggystyle 2: The Doggumentary. The LP is a sequel to his 1993 classic Doggystyle.
The song features vocals by Marty James, lead singer of the San Francisco-based alternative hip hop group One Block Radius.
Snoop explained the song's meaning to MTV News: "It's about celebrating the anticipation of 2011, 'New Year's Eve,'" he said. "You know how everyone looks at the clock at 11:59 and counts it down? You want to be in a celebratory mode and this is the song that puts you in the right mode for that.
I'm just jumping the gun," he continued, alluding to the single's release weeks before the year end. "I'm making it ahead of time instead of waiting until the last day of. 'Cause there's a spirit of waiting until you get to New Year's Eve, so I want to make people feel real good about a new year coming. it's a great situation and that's what the song represents."
The single tanked on the charts, only reaching #66 on Billboard's Hot R&B/ Hip Hop Songs, so was left off the final tracklist of Doggumentary.
