Snoop Lion - the artist formerly knows as Snoop Dogg – has enlisted Drake, Chris Brown and Rita Ora to feature on his new album 'Reincarnated'.

According to rap-up.com, the rapper-turned-reggae-star's dancehall-influenced album will be released on April. It was produced by Diplo and also features contributions from TI, Busta Rhymes, Akon, and dancehall artists Popcaan and Mavado.

"We were searching for true reggae music and the message of peace and hope it reflects," said Snoop. "It’s so much a part of who I am, and this record is all about paying homage and giving respect to those who created and love reggae music, and hopefully introducing it to a whole new audience. I feel truly honored to make this album and respect to all who blazed the path for me."

The album will also be accompanied by a feature-length documentary which will arrive in UK cinemas on March 22, after premiering at SXSW in Austin, Texas. It follows Snoop Dogg's transformation into reggae singer Snoop Lion. Also titled Reincarnated, it promises "unpredecented access" to Snoop as he visits Trench Town, the Jamaican ghetto recognised as the birthplace of reggae music, and records his new album.
