Dre and Paak first collaborated on the former’s Compton project in 2015. The artist formerly known as Breezy Lovejoy contributed vocals for six of the tracks on Dre’s comeback album.
Paak’s currently untitled album will be his first project for Aftermath after signing with Dre’s imprint in 2016. Just weeks prior to his signing, he released the critically acclaimed Malibu LP, which earned him a Grammy nomination.
Paak also teamed with producer Knxwledge — together known as NxWorries — for a collaborative album titled Yes Lawd! in 2016. The project was released through Stones Throw Records despite Paak’s Aftermath contract.
