Recording artists Snoop Dogg and Billy Ray Cyrus have teamed up to release a new hit, “A Hard Working Man”. The hip-hop-country mashup, produced by the legendary Avila Brothers, debuts April 2 over the Grammy weekend in Las Vegas.
Cyrus’ 2019 hit remix of “Old Town Road” featuring rapper Lil Nas X made history by going 16x multi-platinum in the United States. When asked about his genre-bending approach to music, Cyrus replied: “My philosophy in making music is no limitation. No rules, no boundaries, no prejudice. Don’t try to think inside or outside the box, just think as if there was no box. is.”
To add to the excitement of the song’s debut, the metaverse entertainment company Animal Concerts is hard at work (pun intended) developing a new 50,000-piece nonfungible token (NFT) drop to accompany the single. Cointelegraph is producing the artwork for this massive collection, which will be featured on Crypto.com NFT. The drop also offers an exciting array of redeemable items for music fans, from concert tickets and backstage passes to merch and free tickets to Animal Concerts’ “Meta-Concerts.”
Animal Concerts recently hit the scene with a host of high profile live concerts featuring some of the hottest names in music, from Alicia Keys and Future to Meek Mill.
By bridging the NFT world, the metaverse and community utility, Cointelegraph and Animal Concerts will expand their collaboration beyond this drop. In the coming months, the two other high-profile NFT collections will be releasing, including featuring beloved celebrity dog Izzy the Frenchie and some of the biggest names in music.
Animal Concerts is reinventing the future of concerts. From interactive metaverse shows to immersive live events, Animal Concerts empowers established and emerging artists to deliver great fan experiences for the next generation.
