Anderson .Paak is back and “Bubblin.”
After dropping “Til It’s Over” earlier this year, the R&B crooner returns with his new single, which he’s been performing live since July 2016. Over the funky instrumental, produced by Jahlil Beats and AntMan Wonder, .Paak gets his swagger on.
“‘Bubblin’ is just a whole lot of fun,” he told Beats 1. “It sounded like some black 007 action adventure, high-speed-chase type of music. Originally I was trying to get Lil Sims to rap on it first because she was in the studio too. I remember trying to get other people on it, then eventually I just wrote on it. I started it in L.A. and I finished it in New York. And it was just one of them ones. It gets the energy going, gets the blood going.”
And there’s much more to come. “I have 65,000 songs in the vault,” he said. “No features, fam. Some of them are a cappella, no beats. 15 minute songs, my bro. Trust me, I’m good, fam. This is a quality piece right here. This one should stick for at least six summers.”
.Paak been working closely with Dr. Dre on his upcoming album. “He’s been very instrumental to taking it to the next level,” he shared. “He’s in there producing melodies, writing, ideas on sequencing, everything. Just the biggest help just having him as the filter, everything. It’s like whatever we need. Ideas for the videos, all that. We breaking everything down with the big homie.”
Anderson also dropped a funky video for “Bubblin” co-starring his son. Watch below.
