Snoop Dogg featuring Tanvi Shah - Snoop Dogg Millionaire

This is a new song that is produced by Wild Animals and Chase & Status. It is one of the latest songs to capitalize on the juggernaut that is Slumdog Millionaire. On this song, he enlists the help of Tanvi Shah who sang on that movie's soundtrack. She re-sang some bits from the song "Silsila Yeh Chaahat Ka" which came from the Bollywood movie Devdas (2002). Only a few parts are used. This is not the first time a Bollywood song has become the inspiration for a U.S. Hip Hop song. It has been a while since such a track was made. It was really in fashion during the 2002-2003 period when a number of artists did such tracks. While that song and Snoop's rhymes may be an unusual combination, it actually works pretty well. This might be included on Snoop's forthcoming Malice In Wonderland album.
