Yes Lawd! Anderson .Paak, one of the best pound-for-pound talents in this game right now, keeps our ears soaked in fire with this new joint, “Bubblin.” And wow, this wasn’t what I was expecting. If his last single “Til It’s Over” felt like popping molly while floating through the clouds, this one sounds like some “black 007 action adventure high-speed chase type of music,” to quote the man himself.

“I had the beat from Jahlil Beats and AntMan Wonder,” .Paak told Zane Lowe on Beats 1. “I was trying to get Little Simz to rap on it first because she was in the studio too. I remember trying to get other people on it, and then eventually I just wrote on it.” UPDATE: Anderson also drops the official music video. Watch the creative and hilarious visual below.

The Weeknd graces the cover of TIME’s “Next Generation Leaders” issue. The cover story, done by Kara Brown, touches on the XO crooner’s rise to superstar status, headlining Coachella 2018, and the release of his The Weeknd – My Dear Melancholy, EP. Serving as his first interview since 2016, the Toronto singer touches on his music resonating with millennials, relationships, and scrapping an album prior to putting on his chart-topping EP.

“Prior to Melancholy, I had a whole album written, done,” Tesfaye says. “Which wasn’t melancholy at all because it was a different time in my life.” I ask if that album, presumably recorded while he was still with Gomez, was more upbeat. “Yeah,” he says. “It was very upbeat—it was beautiful.” But he scrapped the project because he’s moved past that part of his life. “I don’t want to perform something that I don’t feel,” he says. Will we ever hear it? “Never,” he insists.
