First Listen: Smokey Robinson helps Anderson.Paak "Make It Better"

(April 26, 2019) Anderson.Paak has been lighting up the R&B charts for a few years, with all the deserved buzz of the “next big thing” – enough to win for him the Best New Artist in the annual SoulTracks Readers’ Choice Awards in 2016.

Paak has returned gloriously with his new album, Ventura, which has been an unadulterated critical and commercial success. The album has a number of high points, but one that will strike SoulTrackers is his classic R&B sounding collaboration with an all-time great, Mr. Smokey Robinson.

“Make It Better” is a cool, soulful jam, with Smokey providing harmonies and counterpoints to Paak’s strong leads.

This is a collaboration made in Heaven, on a worthy song. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
