Anderson .Paak strips down his GRAMMY-winning 2019 album "Ventura" to deliver an instrumental version that's just as serenading as the original.


After coming home with two big wins at the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards last month, Anderson .Paak is now honoring the album that gave him such a feat by releasing an instrumental version of Ventura.

With Ventura (Instrumentals), the 34-year-old crooner allows the production laid down by the likes of Jairus "J. Mo" Mozee, duo Callum and Kiefer, Fredwreck, The Alchemist, Dem Jointz, Pomo, Vicky Farewell Nguyen, Pharrell and Paak himself to really stand at the forefront. Granted, the absence of vocals from Brandy on "Jet Black," André 3000 on the "Best R&B Performance"-winning album opener "Come Home" or the late Nate Dogg added into "What Can We Do?" for example make those songs lose a bit of its essence and core appeal, but the "beat-only" alternatives act more like component pieces to the originals that are just as pleasing on the ears. Let's put it like this: this version of the album would've probably forfeited Anderson from winning "Best R&B Album," but he would've been a shoe-in for "Best Jazz Instrumental Album" with no problem.
