IVAV recording artist Steven Malcolm recently released the California-kissed anthem “Summertime,” featuring a show-stopping appearance from global rap star Snoop Dogg, available today. The track’s music video also premiered, and you can watch it here. Listen to “Summertime (feat. Snoop Dogg & Jay-Way)” here.
“It’s surreal to hear Snoop on this song!” Malcolm says of his childhood hero. “I’m a legit fan. I made my mom buy me Chuck Taylor All-Stars in 5th grade because of Snoop. I had a huge afro growing up because of Snoop. I wore flannel because of Snoop.”
The track’s accompanying music video was shot on-location in Los Angeles, with additional scenes filmed during Snoop Dogg’s stop in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on the Mount Westmore Tour. For Malcolm, “Summertime (feat. Snoop Dogg & Jay-Way)” marks a new milestone in a career that continues to expand and electrify.
“When I got signed and began traveling as an artist, I fell in love with LA,” Malcolm explains. “It’s my crush! As a Midwest guy, I find every excuse to go out there, and the West Coast music that comes out of that city has always been amazing.”
