Congratulations are in order for musical legends Snoop Dogg and Sade as both of the veteran artists will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame!
Along with numerous notable acts, which include Gloria Estefan, Teddy Riley, and Electric Light Orchestra founder Jeff Lynne, both Unc’s and Sade’s iconic hits have crossed generations and inspired so many. Chairman Nile Rodgers and the Hall cited Snoop’s popular songs like “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” “Nuthin’ But A ‘G’ Thang,” “Young, Wild & Free,” “Gin & Juice,” and “Next Episode.” While Sade’s “Smooth Operator,” “No Ordinary Love,” “The Sweetest Taboo,” “By Your Side,” and“Is It A Crime” were all notable tracks that secured their place in not only history but induction as well.
Both Snoop and Sade will be inducted this summer in June at the 52nd Annual Induction and Awards Gala in New York.
