If you’ve seen the California polymath Anderson .Paak live, you already know he’s one of the most gifted and kinetic performers on the touring circuit right now. And returning to Ellen to perform “Am I Wrong” today, he brought all the fireworks he brings to every performance: The synchronized dance steps with his backing band, the sudden leaping behind the drum kit, the yelps of joy. And then he brought out his pop-locking young son Soul Rasheed, which just wasn’t fair. Also: Fireworks! It will be a long time before you see a televised performance this relentlessly enjoyable. This guy knows what the fuck he’s doing. Watch it below.
Anderson .Paak’s album Malibu is out now on Empire/OBE/Steel Wool/Art Club.
