MP3: Dollphace feat. Snoop Dogg - "Let's Go to Vegas"

* *

It's not often that I personally co-sign many records but I have to admit Dollphace has an undeniable hit with this one. This record is a Rhythmic & Top 40 smash without any questions. Snoop Dogg adds additional value to the track and couldn't have delivered any better on the record. We sent this out a few weeks ago and now we are officially impacting mixshows and getting great early support. I've included the complete service pack for download that has all versions plus the instrumental.
