Snoop Dogg once made his career by asking listeners to tell him his own name. The appropriate response, at that time, was of course "Snoop Doggy Do-o-o-o-ggg."

But now, you'd be woefully out of touch were you to respond as such. Snoop has released a new reggae single, and according to the Hollywood Reporter, it's under a new name: Snoop Lion.

The single is called "La La La," a Major Lazar-produced track that's on Snoop's upcoming reggae album, "Reincarnated," to be released by the end of this year. No word on why Snoop decided to go from a domesticated household pet to the king of the jungle at this stage in his career, but no doubt the name of his album is intended as some sort of foreshadowing.

Here's the video for the single:
