Rap veteran Snoop Dogg recently spoke on the overwhelming success of music newcomer Susan Boyle and shared his thoughts on her multi-platinum record sales status.

According to Snoop, Boyle is offering the music consumers something new and fresh.

"That state of the industry, there's so many different artists, so you have a lot to choose from," Snoop explained in an interview. "When I came, there wasn't nobody coming like me. The way she did her thing, ain't nobody doing it like her. You gotta be different and diversify who you are and at the right time. Timing has to be impeccable, sometimes you don't have no control over that. I look at a lot of great artists, some of 'em didn't have a great first album but they doing good right now." (Rap Radar)

Earlier this month, 50 Cent expressed his intent to link with Boyle.

"Susan Boyle is hot right now." Fif told the Mirror. "I got to get her on a track, for real. We'd make a hit. Everyone is talking about her, the lady from 'Britain's Got Talent.' I'm always looking to do something new and she's cool, so I'll ask somebody to let her know. I'd love to take her clubbing, show her around my world. She'd have a great time." (Angry Ape)

Boyle's fame stems from appearing on a United Kingdom reality show.

Amateur vocalist Susan Boyle became an overnight sensation after appearing on the first round of 2009's popular U.K. reality show "Britain's Got Talent." Boyle, who was born in Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland in 1961, caught the judges (and the world) off guard with her masterful rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from the musical Les Miserables, due in part to the unemployed and undeniably plain church volunteer's "salt of the earth" demeanor and country spinster back-story.
