Hardy Serves Up A Cover of Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre’s ‘Gin and Juice’: Stream It Now

Why take your gin straight when you can have it with a side of Hardy? In honor of Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre‘s new Gin & Juice canned cocktail venture, the country-rock star released a cover of the hip-hop duo’s classic “Gin and Juice” on Friday (April 19), with a music video to follow next month.


“A while back, I got a phone call saying that Jimmy Iovine, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg would like for me to record my own version of ‘Gin and Juice’ for the launch of their new drink, Gin&Juice,” Hardy revealed in a press release. “I’m still in disbelief, but I am so stoked that I’m dropping my version of ‘Gin and Juice’ with the blessing of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg themselves. Thankful for the opportunity.”

The “Give Heaven Some Hell” singer first teased the cover on Thursday (April 18) with an Instagram post featuring a flick of him posing with the two hip-hop legends. The three artists appeared to be on the set of a forthcoming “short film” tied to Gin & Juice.

Hardy’s “Gin and Juice” cover comes after a string of hits for the CMA-nominated star. In 2023, he notched his first No. 1 title on Top Country Albums with The Mockingbird & the Crow, which housed “Truck Bed,” his first unaccompanied Country Airplay chart-topper. This year, Hardy turned his attention to the rock scene with recent releases “Quit!!” and “Rockstar” peaking at No. 2 and No. 1 on Hot Hard Rock Songs, respectively. Both tracks are set to appear on his upcoming rock album.

Snoop Dogg’s original Dr. Dre-produced version of “Gin and Juice” reached No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1994 (chart dated March 26, 1994). The track — which earned a Grammy nod for best rap solo performance — served as the second single from Snoop’s Billboard 200-topping debut studio album, Doggystyle.
