Anderson .Paak Explains The Inspiration For His 'Ventura' Album

Just months after releasing 'Oxnard,' the singer/rapper is ready to return with a new LP.

(AllHipHop News) Last week, Anderson .Paak let loose the lead single for his forthcoming Ventura album. The Grammy winner also shared the project's full tracklist which includes appearances by André 3000, Nate Dogg, Smokey Robinson, and more.

Ventura's April 12 release date came as a surprise to some of Paak's fans because the singer just dropped Oxnard five months ago. The California cities served as inspiration for the two collections.

"Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine. One town over I went further and found my depth," explains Paak.

He continues, "The duality of each place inspired me greatly and from that I made two albums at the exact same time but held one back because that would have been too many songs to perform live for you all! I like ending things on an even number so welcome to Ventura."
