We’re living through troubling times. It seems like every tweet, every headline is just another tributary of bad news feeding this river of oppression; we’re seemingly wading deeper and deeper into an ocean of darkness. But with acute pain comes incredible art. Anderson .Paak has done just that by delivering his new single, “Lockdown.”
Using his nimble pen, Anderson .Paak deftly weaves these tangential harrowing narratives into a cohesive, clever — yet poignant — offering.

“Lockdown” is currently available in select international markets, with the full version dropping at midnight.
