"Let's Get Blown" is the second single release from Snoop Dogg's album R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta) The Masterpiece, produced by The Neptunes and featuring Pharrell. It did not repeat the success of "Drop It Like It's Hot", but it filled the gap between the aforementioned song and the club hit "Signs". "Let's Get Blown" is one of Snoop Dogg's biggest hits in the UK.
Snoop Dogg and Pharrell are joined by Keyshia Cole, who had not garnered a reputation at that time and was therefore left uncredited (her contribution to the R&G song "Pass It Pass It" also went uncredited). The song samples and contains interpolations from Slave's "Watching You," which was also interpolated in "Gin and Juice." It was recorded by Andrew Coleman and Phil Tan at Record Plant Studios, Los Angeles, CA in 2004. The video (directed by Paul Hunter) was first aired in the week of February 21, 2005. It was 27th on LAUNCH Music Videos Top 100 in January 2005 and 59th on MTV's Top 100 of 2005 video list in December.
The song was performed live at the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on January 20, 2005.
In 2005, the Neptunes were nominated for Grammy Award for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical in the Rap category for composing this song.
