A remix of Franklin’s “123 Victory” with Pharrell helps send the song to No. 1, marking Franklin’s record-breaking fifth leader. Gospel singer-songwriter/producer Kirk Franklin is known for collaborating with artists outside the gospel circle. For instance, when Kanye West performed on the Feb. 13 episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, he brought out Franklin and Chance The Rapper. For his newest partnership, Franklin recruited pop/R&B artist/producer Pharrell Williams for a fresh version of Franklin’s “123 Victory,” which, sparked by Pharrell’s featured involvement, tops Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart.
The track debuted at No. 15 on the Hot Gospel Songs ranking dated Dec. 5, 2015, and first peaked at No. 2 in May. Now in its 41st week, it soars 9-1 powered by the Pharrell-assisted version; as with any song, edits or remixes of tracks are combined for chart purposes. Only one song has taken longer to hit No. 1 in the chart’s 11-year history: Ricky Dillard & New G’s “Amazing,” which completed a 47-week odyssey on Dec. 27, 2014.

For the first time in the brand’s history, G-Star RAW has stepped beyond a product focus and cast their own staff members as the face of their new campaign, ‘RAW Family Portrait’. The global denim brand’s new season launch focuses on telling the story of the brand itself through a multi-layered campaign which features the people that make it, their craft, and the spaces they occupy.
The RAW Family Portrait campaign is comprised of film and a series of digital shorts that highlight the processes taking place at G-Star headquarters in Amsterdam, and specifically the staff that make up G-Star RAW. The brand’s employees, along with music artist and G-Star co-owner Pharrell Williams, are seen practising their crafts and explaining the brand’s engineering process, their obsession with 3D denim construction and their commitment to sustainable fashion. The video is directed by Sing J Lee, a multi-discipline director and artist who has worked with the likes of Muse, Birdie and Charli XCX.
While in New York, Mass Appeal caught up with rapper Belly, the newly signed Roc Nation artist. He talked to Mass Appeal about his aversion for the club scene, how the radio promotion scene in Toronto has changed, how his Mixtape and Album work differ, and that he worked with Pharrell Williams on his next album and how genuine Pharrell is in person.
Ahmad Balshe (32) better known by his stage name Belly, is a Palestinian Canadian Juno Award-winning rapper. Born in Jenin, Palestine, his musical career has been based in Ottawa, Ontario. In addition to a Juno, he has won three MuchMusic Video Awards and has twice attained a top chart position in the national Much Music Countdown. Belly has written many #1 and platinum gold/hits for other artists. His stage name of Belly/Rebellyus was derived from the term “rebellious.”
Photos by Steven Klein & Andras Laszlo Konrath. If increasing intersectionality and multiplicity is where we’re headed, the fresh prince and princess of Calabasas are indeed the vanguard. Between them, Jaden, 18, and Willow, 15, have more hyphens in their descriptions than Morse code—which, tbh, they probably speak: recording artists, actors, designers, entrepreneurs … They check so many boxes that they actually present a few conundrums (and not just the intentionally cryptic koans in which they often speak on social media).
A few days later, Jaden, who has starred in the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid, as well as The Pursuit Of Happyness (2006) and After Earth (2013) with his pops, and more recently played Marcus “Dizzee” Kipling on Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down on Netflix, showed up onstage at Madison Square Garden to rap a bit with his friend Justin Bieber. That same month, for his 18th birthday, Jaden released a new track, “Labor V2.” Willow, who made her film debut in 2007, alongside dad in I Am Legend and went platinum with her first single, “Whip My Hair,” released the album Ardipithecus in 2015. If these two are any indication, maybe in the future everyone will be everything, even if only for a little while. As they tell their pal Pharrell, they’re only getting started.
PHARRELL WILLIAMS: So, what’s up, guys? What’s on your mind, Willow?
WILLOW SMITH: This morning actually was pretty intense because I was thinking about the world and my place in the world, things that I have made or want to make. I was thinking about all the things that I could do that I don’t do. But, you know, I was just thinking about the world and everything.
PHARRELL: Well, you guys are the future. There’s an older generation that feels like they know what the future should be. And then there’s your generation that may have an idea of what the future should be, but that could evolve. How old are you now?
WILLOW: I’m 15.
JADEN SMITH: I actually just turned 18 last Friday.
PHARRELL: Happy belated!
JADEN: Thank you.
PHARRELL: Do you guys ever feel any generational divide when you have a conversation with older folks?
WILLOW: Oh, definitely. It seems like they don’t understand our thought process. Or, like, things have happened in the past that they’re still mad about. We want to accept them and move forward. I mean, I can definitely see things that have happened in the past that they’re holding on to and things that are happening right now that bog them down, but this generation wants to transcend them.
Photos By Binn Buameanchol. Pharrell Williams with his parents, Carolyn and Pharoah Williams, at Dean & Deluca launch event for “The Williams Family Kitchen” in Bangkok, Thailand on August 29. The ‘Williams Family Kitchen‘ product line will hit stores in spring of 2017. Chart-topping and Grammy award winning artist Pharrell Williams, along with his family, has partnered with the upscale grocery store Dean & DeLuca to offer a new product line called The Williams Family Kitchen inspired by authentic recipes straight from the Williams family.
News of the collaboration was revealed during an unveiling held at Dean & DeLuca’s Bangkok location, where Pharrell and his father, Pharoah, introduced the specialty products. “It was an honor to help my dad turn his cooking pastime into a business with this collaboration,” Pharrell says in the press release. “His recipes are so good — my whole family is addicted to his cooking.”
Pharrell continued to say his father’s cooking, and in turn this new line of products, was built on a “father-son agreement” that Pharoah would cook with healthier ingredients, resulting in an overall better lifestyle and would “essentially help add years to his life.” As for the rather to-the-point name for the upcoming line, Pharrell says it was inspired by the fact that the kitchen is a gathering place for everyone — families and friends — to hang out, talk, and most importantly, eat.
According to Forum Member Reggie Volume, Kid CuDi performed his Pharrell collaboration at this years Trillectro Festival in DC, Maryland. The track is apparently called ‘Sonic Candy’ and will probably be on his new album. Here is how Reggie have been told about the track. “a producer homie of mine by the name of Tokyo Trendz hit my phone with a text that said, “Bruh kid cudi premiered a new unreleased song off his album produced by pharrell and its fucking amazing!!!! I’m in tears right now. 😭”. He told me that the record is called “Sonic Candy“. We pretty much can not wait for the studio version of this! Check out Kid CuDi’s performance below.
For those who have yet to get hip to Kap G, the young, fresh-faced rapper from Atlanta, you could be severely missing out on a heavily melodic experience, as he’s renown for drawing from his Mexican heritage, with Southern-influenced creative content that people can relate to. HipHopDX had the pleasure of sitting down with the 22-year-old MC at the Popular Demand offices on August 24, another beautiful day in Hollywood, CA.
Kap shows up fresh from the studio the night prior, in a Lacoste polo, adidas shorts, with the shoes to match; the last two being a gift from Pharrell. “Shout out to the big bro, thank you. I appreciate it. You keep me fly,” he exclaimed. For an upstart rapper, Kap has shared more studio time with the greats than well, some of the greats. With a résumé that boasts of Migos, Young Thug, Jeezy, Fabolous, DJ Drama to name a few, he also names another famous Hip Hop star as one of his direct mentors and next collaborator.

One of the most anticipated albums of the year just hit the net. Odd Future member Frank Ocean released his second studio album ‘Blonde’ this weekend that features a Pharrell production once again. Almost 4 years ago, Frank released one of my favourite Pharrell productions with ‘Sweet Life’ from his debut album ‘Channel Orange’. They collaborated once again on Frank’s new album ‘Blonde’ on the tune ‘Pink + White’ that also has Beyoncé on the vocals and is pretty much the stand out from the album, make sure to cop the album on iTunes and check out the tune below.
