The West Coast rapper delivered “Who R U” on Thursday night, just hours after he teased it on social media.
The infectious cut marks the second single off of Oxnard, following the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Tints.” Mel Beets produced “Who R U” alongside executive producer Dr. Dre.
"This is the album I dreamed of making in high school, when I was listening to [Jay-Z]’s The Blueprint, The Game’s The Documentary, and [Kanye West’s] The College Dropout," .Paak told Rolling Stone about Oxnard. “Getting signed by Dr. Dre helps make that sort of vision happen. Dre, that was the pinnacle. So to be able to have him now as a mentor, it’s just surreal.”
“Who R U” is available now on Apple Music, iTunes, and Spotify.
Oxnard, which is set to arrive next Friday, will include features by J. Cole, Snoop Dogg, Pusha-T, Q-Tip, and BJ the Chicago Kid.
