The Songwriters Hall of Fame announced its latest inductees on Wednesday (January 18). The 2023 class features Snoop Dogg, Sade, Teddy Riley, Gloria Estefan, Jeff Lynne and Liz Rose.

“The music industry does not exist without songwriters delivering great songs first,” Songwriters Hall of Fame chairman Nile Rodgers said. “Without them, there is no recorded music, no concert business, no merch… nothing, it all starts with the song and the songwriter.”

He added, “We are therefore very proud that we are continually recognizing some of the culturally most important songwriters of all time and that the 2023 slate represents not just iconic songs but also diversity and unity across genres, ethnicity, and gender, songwriters who have enriched our lives and, in their time, literally transformed music and the lives of billions of listeners all over the world.”

Jay-Z became the first rapper inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2017. Other inductees include Missy Elliott, Jermaine Dupri and The Neptunes.

Snoop Dogg will be honored at the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s 52nd Annual Induction and Awards Gala. The event takes place at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on June 15.
