Anderson .Paak + Kendrick Lamar – Tints | New Music
After hinting at a collaboration last month, Anderson .Paak unleashes his new single “Tints” featuring Kendrick Lamar, premiering exclusively on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music’s Beats 1 show.
The breezy drop-top jam which was produced by .Paak alongside Om’Mas Keith, features Anderson’s soulful stylings, complimented by a funky verse from Lamar. “I need tints so I can look at the snakes and posers,” he raps. There’s an element of nostalgia with this one with the 80’s funk-esque production plus it bears reference stylistically to the great music we enjoyed from his last album Malibu.
.Paak’s new album Oxnard, the follow-up to 2016’s Malibu, is complete and features contributions from J. Cole, Pusha-T, Q-Tip and Dr. Dre. The album marks .Paak’s first release on Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment and the last in his ‘beach series’.
“I feel like ambition is missing from today’s music,” he told Rolling Stone. “This is the album I dreamed of making in high school, when I was listening to [Jay-Z]’s The Blueprint, The Game’s The Documentary, and [Kanye West’s] The College Dropout.”
