Controversial American rapper Snoop Dogg is the latest international celebrity to join the Slumdog Millionaire bandwagon. Soon after Pussycat Dolls recorded their version of the Oscar winning Jai Ho, the latest news is that Snoop Dogg has done something similar with the help of Tanvi Shah whose vocals appear on the original version of Jai Ho. Snoop Dogg was last in the news for recording the Singh Is Kinng title rap song with Akshay Kumar.
The track called Snoop Dogg Millionaire has Tanvi Shah singing samples over his rap. She can be heard singing “Kahaan se aaya aur kya ban gaya... Yeh hai Snoop Dogg Millionaire." Tanvi is one of A R Rahman"s most frequently used artistes and also performed at the 81st Annual Academy Awards with him. Tanvi"s samples in Snoop Dogg Millonaire have a very Indian and Bollywood feel to it. And speculation is now rife that Snoop Dogg Millionaire will feature on Snoop"s soon to be released album Malice in Wonderland which would be a huge break for Tanvi Shah.
In fact Snoop has also released a CD-in lay along with the song which is very similar to Danny Boyle"s poster for Slumdog Millionaire and features Tanvi's name prominently. Tanvi who is currently in the US remained unavailable for comment but in a previous interview she had acknowledged that she had several big international projects coming up.
