The Good Good

Album: Reincarnated (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This lazy summer pop-reggae tune features a vocal contribution from Iza, who was the first artist signed to Snoop's Berhane Sound System/Boss Lady Entertainment label.
  • The song was penned by the American songwriter Dianne Warren, who has written numerous hits for the likes of Cher ("If I Could Turn Back Time"), Toni Braxton ("Un-Break My Heart") and Aerosmith ("I Don't Want to Miss a Thing").

    Warren wrote the song as "The Good S--t," but the title was sanitized for broader appeal. "I got censored by a hardcore rapper, which I find amazingly awesome," she said. Warren told TMZ that she smoked a little weed with Snoop at the session.
  • The song's harmonious all-white video is a family affair. It stars Snoop alongside his wife, Shante Taylor, daughter Cori, and two sons, Cordé and Cordell.
