Ventura is much more than a set of Oxnard leftovers.
Oxnard has a stronger sense of direction than its predecessor and is a breath of fresh air in the current state of pop rap and neo-soul.
Oxnard singer, producer, rapper, and drummer Anderson .Paak has released his first single since his last solo album, 2016’s Malibu. Despite not releasing any of his own music for over a year, .Paak has been busy with numerous features and collaborations. Notably Yes Lawd!, his collaborative effort with Knxwledge under the name NxWorries, and most recently, he featured on the Black Panther OST.
“‘Til It’s Over” is cleanly produced and funky. The jittering synths and bells give the already moody track an extra boost of character. As of now, the track is available to stream exclusively on Apple Music. The song’s stunning and colorful video comes in the form of an extended commercial for Apple’s “HomePod” and features FKA twigs dancing in her apartment.
Anderson .Paak has said that he will release a new album in 2018. His band, The Free Nationals, also intends to release a full-length project this year.
Singer-songwriter Anderson .Paak comes through with a formidable breakout album that fuses elements of soul, hip hop, pop, funk, and more.
