Anderson Paak. has been performing "Bubblin" live since 2016, and teased in his Beats1 interview with Zane Lowe that he has over "65,000 songs in the vault".
"I have 65,000 songs in the vault,” Anderson Paak. said to Zane Lowe, “No features, fam. Some of them are a cappella, no beats. 15 minute songs, my bro. This one should stick for at least six summers.”
As Zane Lowe went on to introduce Paak.'s new track in an interview with Beats1, Anderson Paak. explained, “‘Bubblin’ is just a whole lot of fun. It sounded like some black 007 action adventure, high-speed-chase type of music. Originally I was trying to get Lil Simz to rap on it first because she was in the studio too. I remember trying to get other people on it, then eventually I just wrote on it. I started it in L.A. and I finished it in New York. And it was just one of them ones. It gets the energy going, gets the blood going.”
Anderson Paak. and Dr. Dre have shown a blossoming bromance over the past few years. Dr. Dre brought supreme soulman Anderson Paak. to work on his latest album All In A Day's Work, to which "Bubblin" can only be another tangent for the iconic rapper and prized Paak.
In the Zane Lowe interview, Paak. went on to praise Dr. Dre, "He’s in there producing melodies, writing, ideas on sequencing, everything. Just the biggest help just having him as the filter, everything. It’s like whatever we need. Ideas for the videos, all that. We breaking everything down with the big homie.”
Having brought out Dr. Dre on stage with him in March at London's O2 Academy in Brixton, it seems the two idolised musicians have been working together more frequently in the past few months.
