Rap sensation Snoop Lion and pop star Miley Cyrus are lighting up for Snoop's latest track "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks." The unlikely pair teamed up for the first hit single off of Snoop's upcoming album "Reincarnated," which is set to be released on April 23. Produced by Dre Skull, Major Lazer and Ariel Rechtshaid, the Bob Marley inspired track features Miley's vocals with a reggae-pop sound surprisingly different from both artists' previous work. 

With lyrics like "blow it high for the ones who ain't here," Snoop and Miley sing about lighting one in remembrance of lost loved ones. Looks like Snoop Lion's persona change has brought about some musical changes along with it. According to MTV, this won't be the only Snoop and Miley collaboration out this year!
