Anderson .Paak and Timbaland have teamed up to deliver the brand new single, “JEWELZ.”

Clocking in at just under three minutes, the funk-laden track is a feel-good offering that hears .Paak singing and rapping in a pitched-up voice. The single’s sunny disposition reflects the confident lyricism used by the GRAMMY winner where he sings, “I ain’t even put my jewels on/I ain’t even play my latest, greatest song/Had to make or break ’cause that ‘lectric made to go.”

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music, .Paak named Timbaland as one of his inspirations as a producer. “…[I]t’s really dope to see someone like Timbaland that comes out of that era and that can still get the keyboard and mash out a beat right there on the spot. You know what I’m saying? A lot of dudes can’t do that no more,” he said. He continued, “‘JEWELZ’ was amazing, man. Timbaland came through, he had a bunch of ideas, he brought his son through and before we even got in the session, we was just chopping it up, having conversations and I think that’s how pretty much the song had came about. With “I ain’t even put my jewels on,” we were talking, me, him and his son about something, and I think his son had said it. Like, “We didn’t even start it yet or I ain’t get my sh-t out yet.” And I was like, “Yo, that’s it. I ain’t even put my jewels on yet. We didn’t even start yet. We just warming up.” You know what I’m saying? And Timbaland got in there.”
