.Paak is back.
The singer, rapper, drummer, and all-around California king has not released solo material since his GRAMMY-nominated 2016 album, Malibu. Though 2017 saw him featuring on a slew of records for Rapsody, Talib Kweli, and others, “‘Til It’s Over” marks the end of the solo Anderson .Paak dry-spell.
Lyrically, .Paak continues his reign as the smoothest West Coast lover boy, questioning the strength of his own heart while putting fear aside for the thrill of the chase.
Skittering rhythms and a mellow synth line give .Paak’s yearning vocals room to unfurl as he recalls a fateful night out in Los Angeles. A bed of rich keys provides the necessary counterforce to .Paak’s shimmering upper register before ceding the melody to a flurry of bright arpeggios.
The track first appeared on a Spike Jonze-directed commercial for the Apple HomePod, featuring killer dancing from FKA Twigs.
