jade-jagger-pharrell-3.jpgKanye West may carry the nickname “Louis Vuitton Don,” but Pharrell Williams appears to be more worthy of the title. Nearly three years after linking with LV to design a line of sunglasses “Millionaire”, the rapper/producer has re-teamed with the fashion house to launch a new collection of fine jewelry called Blason. Williams and designer Camille Miceli joined forces to create the Blason Line, which will include four separate themes, and feature yellow and white gold, as well as diamonds, The jewelry pieces, ranging from $2,000 to over $600,000, was introduced during a private event in Paris with a worldwide launch in Louis Vuitton stores this spring.

N¤E¤R¤D – Everyone Nose Reviews !

Let’s try and work out what N¤E¤R¤D’s new leaked track is about, shall we? – There’s the title. – There’s the repetitive use of the line “All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom”. – There’s the repetitive reference to “hundred-dollar bills”. – There’s the line “Cut you open and you’re just white”. – There are a couple of not-so-subtle uses of the word “blow”. Nah, beats me. Whatever it’s about, it is pretty bloody good, a jazzy, bass-y banger (obviously you kind of ignore Pharrell’s rapping) which raises hopes that The Neptunes’ own stuff might finally match the material they’ve produced for others.

The Neptunes’ rock band’s last album, 2004’s Fly or Die, was an underappreciated gem, but we don’t suspect this first single from their forthcoming new record is in any danger of being underrated, to put it politely. Nah Right.
