Background[edit]

"Wet" was written by Snoop Dogg along with The Cataracs, who produced the song. Snoop Dogg specifically recorded the song for Prince William's bachelor's party. Titled "Wet", Snoop spokespeople bill the song as a sequel to 2008's "Sexual Eruption". Produced by The Cataracs producers of the number-one single "Like a G6", Snoop spoke of the gift “When I heard the royal family wanted to have me perform in celebration of Prince William’s marriage, I knew I had to give them a little something." He continued, “’Wet’ is the perfect anthem for Prince William or any playa to get the club smokin’.”[3][4] The song was premiered on Snoop's SnoopDogg.com website at precisely 4:20 pm PST, November 30.[5] The official remix, featuring Jim Jones and Shawty Lo, was released on February 8, 2011 as a part of Snoop Dogg's Puff Puff Pass Tuesdays giveaway.[6]
