There is no better way to describe Anderson.Paak’s style than vibey. Each song takes on a different feel, which creates an album with eclectic songs that range from reggae to pop to rap.

His rough and raspy voice is the kind that no other artist today has recreated.

On March 14, Paak debuted the first single from the album, King James, which fans quickly fell in love with.

Shortly after, Paak released “Make it Better” with a music video to accompany it. The song encompasses the groove that is reminiscent of the sound fans fell in love with. The music video portrays a simple but beautiful love story that follows the storyline of the lyrics.

“I wanted to keep it as incubated as I could ’cause I wanted to keep the vibes with how we felt at the time,” Paak recently told Esquire about Ventura. “I didn’t want to over-produce, I didn’t want to start second-guessing it, I didn’t want to drive myself crazy. I drove myself crazy with Oxnard [his previous album]. That was almost why I was like, I’m about to put [Ventura] over to the side now, like a ‘break in case of emergency.”

The album features Andre 3000, Brandy, Smokey Robinson, and the late Nate Dogg. Yes, we can already picture the soul.

The following list is the songs we can expect to hear on the coming album:

  1. Come Home (feat. André 3000)
  2. Make It Better (feat. Smokey Robinson)
  3. Reachin’ 2 Much (feat. Lalah Hathaway)
  4. Winners Circle
  5. Good Heels (feat. Jazmine Sullivan)
  6. Yada Yada
  7. King James
  8. Chosen One (feat. Sonyae Elise)
  9. Jet Black (feat. Brandy)
  10. Twilight
  11. What Can We Do? (feat. Nate Dogg)
