Anderson .Paak is on a New York run. He stopped by The Breakfast Club and chopped it up with Ebro over at Hot 97. While in the Big Apple, .Paak also dropped by The Daily Show with Trevor Noah to continue the Oxnard promo run. .Paak’s Dr. Dre guided third solo album has been making big waves around the industry. It’s cool seeing .Pakk doing interviews and blowing up on a commercial level. Out here in Los Angeles, .Paak has been grinding away for years. Some of his day one fans feel like Oxnard is underwhelming for .Paak’s standards, something our review points out. Still, the project is dope, and “Anywhere” is one of the best songs on the album. .Paak performed the banger, sans Snoop Dogg, during his Daily Show stop.

.Paak performs while playing the drums, showing off his skills on the instrument while his raspy vocals dance across the beat. The stripped down performance gives the song an intimate feel that needs to be packaged in CDQ and sold. Assisted by a small band and a pianist who drops off melodious modulated vocals, .Paak impresses the audience over in New York.
