Wet

Album: Doggumentary Music (2010)
Charted: 4
  • This is the second single to be released from rapper Snoop Dogg's 11th studio album, Doggumentary Music. The song was produced by Electro-pop duo The Cataracs, who are best known for their work on Far East Movement's chart-topper, "Like a G6."
  • Snoop explained that the song was inspired by the announcement on November 16, 2010 of Prince William's engagement to Kate Middleton and his anticipation at being invited to play at the heir to the throne's stag party: "When I heard the royal family wanted to have me perform in celebration of Prince William's marriage, I knew I had to give them a little something," he explained. "'Wet' is the perfect anthem for Prince William or any playa to get the club smokin'." We wonder if Snoop is angling for a knighthood?
  • The song is an ode to oral sex, which Snoop says is a sequel of sorts to his 2008 hit "Sexual Eruption," so it is unlikely the British royals will ever embrace the R-rated track.
  • An edited version, entitled "Sweat" was released to US urban radio stations on January 11, 2011.
  • A remix was made by David Guetta using the censored "Sweat" title. The French DJ's version was released as a single in the UK and across continental Europe, as well as Australia. The remix samples Felix' 1992 club hit "Don't You Want Me."
