Snoop Dogg sings Men at Work's 'Down Under' in car ahead of New Zealand tour

Snoop Dogg has been recorded singing along to Men at Work's iconic hit 'Down Under' as he tours Australia.

Men at Work's lead singer Colin Hay shared the footage of the 'Drop It Like It's Hot' rapper grooving away to the song in a car while sharing video of his surroundings.

Smiling into the camera, Snoop, 51, sang along to the song's chorus.

"We made it to Australia - you better run, you better take cover," Snoop sang.

Hay said online it was "more than delightful to see this man enjoying Down Under whilst visiting the land of the wombat".

Reaction to Snoop's singing was positive, with commenters on social media delighting in his glee.

"This just made my morning," one said.

"Now I've seen everything," another commented.

"As good as anything gets," a third added.

Snoop is playing a series of concerts in Australia before heading to Aotearoa.

He will play Christchurch's Orangetheory Stadium on Friday, March 10 before heading to Auckland's Trusts Outdoors on Saturday, March 11.

The dates were rescheduled when the 'Gin and Juice' hitmaker announced in May his original dates in November were being cancelled due to "family obligations" as well as "TV and film projects".

The Aotearoa concerts are part of the I Wanna Thank Me tour, which is in support of the album of the same name - the rapper's 17th.

Snoop hasn't performed in New Zealand since 2008, aside from appearing at the Big Day Out as 'Snoop Lion' in 2014.
