Anderson .Paak returned earlier this month with new album, Ventura, which Consequence of Sound called “lean and lovely” in its glowing review. The California native brought a little bit of that magic to Ellen on Monday, where he performed “Make It Better”.

Considered one of the LP’s essential tracks, it’s a collaboration with Smokey Robinson. The R&B legend wasn’t in attendance this morning, but .Paak and his Free Nationals band still managed to serve up something rich and soulful to the audience.
