Anderson .Paak drops off cinematic music video for K Dot collaboration, ‘Tints’ [Watch]
Anderson .Paak and Kendrick Lamar appear to be actors who rap in their spare time, rather than big-league hip-hop artists who act on the side, in the newly released music video for their feel good collaboration, “Tints.” .Paak’s hook vocalizes his need for “tints,” and when it comes to the necessities, all that the third single off of .Paak’s forthcoming Oxnard album needed was a visual. Now, the auditory and the visual coalesce in the video, which harnesses the ’70s funk of the single as the camera follows .Paak’s and K Dot’s clothing and subsequent character changes for a near five-minutes of cinematic action.
.Paak doubles as both as a dad and a kidnapping victim, among other fictitious roles in the video, while Lamar makes his way to the strip club, and finds unusual company in the grim reaper when not surrounded by strippers and singles. The fluidity of personality shifts within the video mirrors the song’s mellifluous sonic progression, striking a harmonious balance between what listeners hear, and what they see in the video. Oxnard is slated for a November 16 releases, meaning that streamers will have to maintain their patience just a little longer before fresh material from the R&B’s hitter lands.
