Anderson .Paak is about to treat 2018 like he treated 2016

It’s been two years since Anderson .Paak released his breakthrough album Malibu. A couple of months later, .Paak dropped a classic with producer Knxwledge.

But we want another solo .Paak album.

And it turns out we’re getting one soon. Anderson .Paak sat down with Triple J recently where he confirmed that he is, in fact, working on the follow up to Malibu. And that the album should be coming out in 2018.

More specifically, .Paak revealed that Dr. Dre will be an important part of the project. Anderson said Dre “had a heavy role in this new album that’s almost done as well. Just going through the mixing phase. I won’t say any dates but you can definitely expect it this year, sometime.”

He also added:

“It’s dope to be around like legends like that and you can feel the mutual respect. That’s what I always did it for, I wasn’t really thinking about money or fame, I just wanted the respect from the people I look up to musically. It’s amazing.”
