    In less than a month (April 12), Anderson Paak will release his fourth solo album, Ventura. It marks the singer/MC/drummer/producer’s second release with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment, arriving less than six months after Oxnard. Last month, Paak took home a Grammy Award for 2018 single “Bubblin’,” his first solo release with the label.

    Before today, fans did not know much about the project other than its name and drop date. Now though, not only are they getting the first single, Andy has revealed his tracklist to an album said to be more soulful than his 2018 LP.

    The 11th and final track on Ventura, titled “What Can We Do?” will feature posthumous vocals from Nate Dogg. Nate, like Anderson, was a Dr. Dre-affiliated singer who incorporated Hip-Hop themes and lexicon into his music. After leaving Death Row Records in 1997, he worked extensively with artists including Fabolous, Ludacris, and Eminem, in addition to his solo career and co-founding status with 213. Notably, tomorrow (March 15), marks exactly eight years since the Long Beach, California representative died from complications related to a stroke.

    Also of note, on the Ventura intro “Come Home,” OutKast’s Andre 3000 is slated to make an appearance. The LP is reported to also feature Smokey Robinson, Lalah Hathaway, Brandy, and Jazmine Sullivan, among others.

    Anderson .Paak’s Ventura tracklisting:

    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)

    Interestingly, Heads are also learning that Dr. Dre will be quarterbacking a lot of the production on the album. During an interview posted by Esquire just days ago, the Oxnard, Cali native said Dre had much less input on his forthcoming effort. “He let me have a lot of leeway on Ventura,” he said. “He was like, ‘it seems like you got it.’ I spread my wings on the production and on the writing and on these collaborations.”

    As mentioned above, Anderson released a new single called “King James.” It’s a groovy number that echoes many of the vibes pronounced on Oxnard. According to Paak, it will be available on all platforms tomorrow.

    In promotion of Ventura, Anderson Paak will embark on a U.S./Canadian tour starting in May. The 21-date tour will begin in Nashville, Tennessee and end on the West Coast in San Fransisco. Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Mac DeMarco, and Jessie Reyez are all slated to accompany Paak during different legs of the tour as well.

    Fucking DOPE 2 albums released so close together. Im Excited to see what he does.

    I enjoyed Oxnard, but compared to Malibu and Venice, it was my least favorite Paak album. Glad that Dre let Paak take the reins on the direction of this album. He did amazing crafting Malibu. one of my favorite albums from the last decade.

    I am too. He said awhile back that after Oxnard he was going to do an Album with his band, The Free Nationals. Im wondering if this is that album since he took over as the primary producer. I expected it to be released under the free nationals name though. Maybe not.

    Last joint was underwhelming but had some gems. I expect this one to be more like Malibu

    We got 1! The first 3 tracks are completely relatable to any man that had ever been in a relationship with a woman.
