Warner Chappell Music, in collaboration with Dr. Dre’s Hard Workin ‘Black Folks signed a worldwide administrative arrangement with four-time Grammy Award-winning songwriter, rapper, singer, producer, director and multi-instrumentalist Anderson .Paak.

His latest project brings .Paak together with Warner Chappell songwriter Bruno Mars in the new duo Silk Sonic.

Their debut single Leave The Door Open, which they played live for the first time last month at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards, recently reached number one on Billboards Hot 100.

It has also seen more than 350 million global streams and peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs and R&B Streaming Songs charts.

Silk Sonic’s debut project, an Aftermath Entertainment / Atlantic Records release, is out later this year. Anderson .Paak is under contract with Aftermath Entertainment.

Born in Oxnard, Calif., Brandon Paak Anderson, the four-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer, played drums in his church band as a teenager and later famously worked on a marijuana farm.

His first musical incarnation was Breezy Lovejoy, followed by his transformation into Anderson .Paak with his debut album Venice and a six-song run on Dr. Dre’s certified gold COMPTON album.

In 2016, he released Grammy nominations for Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album, and that year received Grammy nominations as well as recognition and wins at the Soul Train Music Awards, NME Awards, and others.

In 2017, he founded the nonprofit, Paak House, which aims to create safe havens for the next generation and forge alliances with like-minded nonprofits to create greater impact.

“We are delighted to welcome him to the Warner Chappell family and are proud to represent him and his phenomenal repertoire of songs.”

Paak has also worked with acts like Mac Miller, J. Cole, Snoop Dogg and Chance the Rapper, making his SNL debut with Kendrick Lamar in 2018.

In 2018 his single was released in Bubblin, which earned him his first Grammy for best rap performance in 2019. Two more Grammy Awards followed in 2020 with the best R&B album for Ventura and the best R&B performance for his song Come Home (with Andre 3000).

Earlier this year, .Paak released his single Lockdown on Juneteenth. The inspiration for the song came from .Paak’s participation in a protest against Black Lives Matter in Los Angeles, during which peaceful protesters were shot dead by police with rubber bullets.

A video by Dave Meyers with Andra Day, Jay Rock, Syd, SiR, Dumbfoundead and Dominic Fike followed in addition to a bundle with the remix with JID, Noname and Jay Rock, with whom he won the track at the 2020 BET Awards.

Paak received two Grammy Award nominations for the song – Best Music Video and Best Melodic Rap Performance – and won Best Melodic Rap Performance.

“He really is an example of everything a great songwriter can be and it’s an absolute honor to be part of his journey.”
