Snoop Dogg and Charlie Wilson Reunite for "One More Day"

The longtime friends team up for a new video from 'Gospel of Love.'

One of music’s favorite hip-hop OG’s and soulful uncles are back on the scene. Snoop Dogg and Charlie Wilson star in “One More Day,” premiering today (March 30) on Billboard. The video’s song appears on Snoop Dogg’s first inspirational album, Bible of Love. The double-album gave the rapper his first No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart this week.

“I’m humbled by all the love and support for the album,” Snoop Dogg tells Billboard. “I made this album to spread love and positivity around the world. I’m blessed and grateful to have worked on this project with some of my favorite artists, people who I truly admire.”

In addition to Wilson, Bible of Love’s extensive guest list of gospel and secular stars includes Kim Burrell, Tye Tribbett, Marvin Sapp, Mary Mary, Patti LaBelle, Faith Evans, Mali Music and K-Ci (of R&B duo K-Ci & JoJo). The 32-track set is the debut release from Snoop Dogg’s All the Time Entertainment via RCA Inspiration.

The video premise for “One More Day” fittingly coincides with this weekend’s Easter holiday celebrations. Snoop Dogg, Wilson and other join a father in prayerful vigil for the recovery of his daughter who has overdosed on drugs. Underscoring the poignancy is Wilson’s own backstory. The former Gap Band frontman hit rock bottom himself as a homeless drug addict before becoming sober in 1995. As he shares in the uplifting “One More Day”: “Even when I fell flat on my face / You gave me grace / It’s just one more day that the Lord has kept me.”

Shot in Los Angeles, the six-minute, 31-second video was directed by Dylan Brown. At one point during the taping, the video crew needed to make a small lighting change before shooting the scene where Snoop Dogg leads the vigil group in prayer. To occupy the time, the cast sang an impromptu version of “Jesus on the Mainline.” Shares Brown, “It sounded so good that we decided to leave it in the video. Snoop's prayer was truly from the heart. There was no script for it and it was done in one take.”

Wilson and Snoop Dogg—who nicknamed the singer “Uncle Charlie”—first collaborated together on four songs featured on the rapper’s 1996 album Tha Doggfather. Of their latest pairing, Snoop Dogg says, “Uncle Charlie has always been a big inspiration for me … his testimony and what he’s overcome. This project wouldn’t be complete without him.”

Premiere: Project Girls Club Deliver Bossed-Up Swag In "Heavy" Visuals

What makes Atlanta's Project Girls Club so delightful is their creative approach to the girl group troupe. The collective, comprised of Shanell, D. Woods and Mika Means have returned with "Heavy" which also features stellar bars from Akbar V.

Directed by the Class Clown studio, the ladies shine in the black and white visuals with looks to complete their eclectic personalities. Like their previous single "Run Up," "Heavy" is rooted in swag and strong vocals from Shanell as well as standout bars from Means and Akbar V.

Known for her time on Love and hip Hop Atlanta, Akbar V puts reality woes to the side and lays down witty raps. Shanell also brings the dance moves during her verse with an ode to her time in Young Money. "On top. call me when you wanna see ya bedrock," she sings.

Project Girls Club was founded by Woods, Shanell and Means as a form of pushing the culture of powerful women forward in the south and beyond. The niche is that PGC not only features those in the music video but producers, directors and DJs like Traci Steele.

"Everyone in Project Girls Group has their own vibe and we don't make anyone else have to be on everyone else's vibe. We celebrate each other's vibe (laughs)," Wood previously shared with VIBE. "I'm not going to make my dream be your dream. Let's figure how to coexist these dreams and push them to the next level."

As the summer continues to heat up, "Heavy" is a perfect track to your hot girl playlist.

The “Megatron” rapper  also sent a shout out to Da Baby. “I just think he’s super dope and he actually spits actual bars.”

Prior to the song premiere, Minaj shared her first public statement on the death of Nipsey Hussle. The Queens native explained that she wasn’t on the internet at the time of Hussle’s murder, but wanted to send condolences to Lauren London, and the rest of his family.

“When he passed I didn’t get a chance to be online at that time,” Minaj told Power 106's DJ Carisma. “Lauren London happens to be somebody that I adore. I felt like my heart ripped out when I heard [that he was killed]. I just wanted to finally send my condolences to his family and his fans.”

Earlier in the interview, Minaj sent love to her fans in Saudi Arabia after canceling her appearance at the Jedah World Festival over the country’s treatment of women, and members of the LGBTQ community. Minaj added that she turned down $1.5 million by pulling out of the performance. She also confirmed that she will be heading out on tour after the release of her upcoming new album.
