On Tuesday (Jan. 25), Anderson posed a video of his son dancing to an unreleased instrumental from the group, announcing the NxWorries’ next project is in the works, declaring himself in “album mode.”
Aside from his work with .Paak, Knxwledge is famed for his production contributions to Kendrick Lamar‘s To Pimp A Butterfly and early work from Joey Bada$$‘s discography. The instrumentalist’s soulful hip-hop and R&B prowess makes he and .Paak a match made in heaven.
NxWorries’s sophomore album will come during a time of peak popularity for .Paak, as he is coming off a separate collaborative album with bonafide pop-star Bruno Mars as Silk Sonic. The album gave the world two stellar smash hits in “Smokin Out The Window” and “Leave The Door Open,” as well as a succinct project that revitalized the upbeat and frisky funk and R&B sounds of the 1970s and 1980s.
Anderson .Paak is, quite simply, on a roll and his momentum will surely roll over into a quality exhibition with Knxwledge on their next NxWorries album.
