Anderson .Paak has shared an instrumental version of his GRAMMY-winning studio album, Ventura. Featuring production from the likes of The Alchemist, Pharrell, Callum and Kiefer, Dem Jointz, Pomo, J. Mo, Vicky Farewell and Paak himself, the 11-track instrumental project spotlights the musician’s return to the environment he thrives in after exploring different sonic structures in predecessor Oxnard.

Paak announced Ventura just three months after the November 2018 release of Oxnard, then dropped the album two months later in April 2019. “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. 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,” he shared in an official statement. “I like ending things on an even number so welcome to Ventura.”

Elsewhere in music, DaBaby and Lil Baby teamed up with Future and Drake for a “Life Is Good” remix.
