With .Paak’s fan's burning for a new beat, he teased the world with his single, “Tints”, earlier this month. Featuring Kendrick Lamar, this single is an ultimate bop and perfect example of the effortlessly ecstatic music .Paak continues to produce. If you aren’t already obsessed with .Paak, you may wonder why you should listen to this album next month. Let me tell you why.
Anderson .Paak’s raspy voice is one you won’t confuse with anyone else. His music always seems to blend his talented drumming skills, groovy beats and soulful vocals perfectly. If you queue up a jam like “Am I Wrong” or “Come Down”, you’ll be dancing before you realize it. .Paak has mentioned James Brown, Childish Gambino and Prince influencers in his career which explains why his music can’t be constricted to one musical genre. With a strong hip-hop foundation, .Paak embraces urban contemporary beats with a splash of R&B as well. He outstands other artists by the consistent positivity he shares through his lyrics and rhythms in the majority of his work. Anderson .Paak simply makes you feel good.
.Paak’s new album, Oxnard, has been anticipated for a couple years. With the new release in vague sight, .Paak has mentioned this is the album he’s been dreaming of making since high school. Raised in the Southern California city of Oxnard, this album is in honor of his hometown, ambition and his youth that he feels is slowly being lost in this industry. .Paak wants to produce this new album with the same level of integrity and passion he has when he was making something from scratch. There’s no doubt Oxnard will be a solid bop for car rides or chill nights with your squad.
