"'F**k fame, that killed all my favorite entertainers.' -AP"
Anderson .Paak is an upcoming R&B singer/songwriter out of Oxnard, California. .Paak has recently released his second studio album - Malibu in January of this year, and it includes a sound that is unmatchable to anyone at the moment. This California native is mainly recognized from Dr. Dre's Compton album where he was featured on 6 of 18 songs from the Grammy nominated album. Malibu is an album that presents many different musical elements at once, merging R&B, Alternative and Soul. Anderson .Paak creates a vibe that is very soothing and relaxing that can be played at any time of day. Production on the album comes from dynamic producers including 9th Wonder, Madlib and Chris Dave (who has also done work for Mint Condition, Maxwell, D'Angelo, and Adele). Along with Anderson .Paak, these producers created a mixture of sounds on the album that come together to resemble music from the 60's up until now. Some music critics and fans have compared this trend-setting album to Stevie Wonder's Innervisions and Kendrick Lamar's most recent album, To Pimp A Butterfly. A few favorites on the album are "Room In Here", "Heart Dont Stand a Chance" and "Without You".
