#6: Anderson .Paak – Heart Don’t Stand A Chance

 

Anderson .Paak’s ‘Malibu’ feels like an old release now, but it lit up the first quarter of 2016, and announced him as a major player in the R&B world for the next generation. When so many others were ploughing the alt-R&B, minimal electro soul that Frank Ocean, Solange, Blood Orange, James Blake and countless others are trending with at the moment, Paak went for a more organic, instrumental, in-the-room production. Some will label it as retro, and you can see why, but with this delivery it feels as vital and fresh as any other 2016 release.
