Anderson .Paak’s “Malibu” Visuals Are Worth Every Bit Of The Wait (Video)
Anderson .Paak’s Malibu is far and away one of 2016’s most-talked about albums, especially in terms of acclaim. Now signed to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment, the Californian opened the year with an Empire-backed release that features ScHoolboy Q, Rapsody, Game, and others. Independently released, Malibu shot into the Top 100, and has earned the artist spots on national television, Coachella stages, and that bread-breaking with D-R-E.
As an indie LP, Malibu has not had many videos. More than three months after the LP dropped, the artist formerly known as Breezy Lovejoy reaches into his bag of songs and releases a beautifully-produced visual of three different cuts, all singles.
For the video of “The Seasons/Carry Me” (released as one song on Malibu, despite two performances and beats), he attaches “The Waters.” In the highly-personal display, Paak uses the mixed media that he has had on the artwork to Malibu and 2014’s Venice. The visual pairs closely with the lyrics to display some interpretative connections on Anderson’s spiritually, creatively, and emotionally upward journey to the top.
