In the summer of 2016 Apogee Studios hosted an Up Close & Personal event for Los Angeles Chapter with Anderson .Paak. Both an interview as well as this live performance — together with his band The Free Nationals and vocalists the Cheetah Girls. The memorable tracks from .Paak's recent release Malibu, in the order they performed them, were "The Bird," "The Season/Carry Me," "Put Me Thru," "Heart Don't Stand A Chance," "Room In Here," "Come Down," and "Am I Wrong." Later that year the 59th GRAMMY Award nominations included Malibu for Best Urban Contemporary Album as well as Best New Artist for Anderson .Paak. He discusses many of the songs he performs in the interview segment with DJ Moonbaby.
