In 2019, Anderson .Paak was a crucial guest on Cordae’s Grammy-nominated album, The Lost Boy (also named one of Ambrosia For Heads‘ best albums that year). That collaboration, “RNP (Rich Ni**a Problems)” was produced by J. Cole and evolved to become a music video. The chemistry between Cordae and Paak was palpable, on a thick bassline from Cole.
Almost four years later, this trio is back in position for “Two Tens”—and it Following last year’s From A Bird’s Eye View, this video single signals whatever may be next for Cordae. This song has a theme, as Cordae (now expecting a child with tennis superstar Naomi Osaka) and Paak position themselves on the prowl for romance. There, they encounter two women, but have very different outcomes. The chorus, which they both do, explains it all: “Two friends and they both tens, lookin’ nice, uh / Too bent, I should call it quits but I’m not, uh / No chances, we all dance in the light, uh / Tell me, what’s the odds we can all get a bite?”
