April 29, 2019

Anderson .Paak was the musical guest on today's episode of Ellen. Fresh off the release of his fourth album Ventura, which dropped earlier this month, .Paak chose to perform "Make It Better," which features vocals from the legendary Smokey Robinson on the recorded version. Robinson didn't attend the Ellen taping, but .Paak brought a mighty band and backup singers in his stead. At the end of the performance, he also gifted Ellen with a yellow durag.
