For the latest batch of songs, she has teamed up with Justin Timberlake, Timbaland and Pharrell Williams, who was the most impressed with Madonna’s incredible work-rate. “That work ethic still exists,” she said. “I don’t think it was a surprise to Justin and Timbaland but Pharrell just kept referring to me as a work horse. He complained a little bit about my relentless inability to sit still for very long, but he got over it eventually.”Hard Candy” is “one of the best albums in years, Madonna “worked me to death,” Williams says. “But you know what? I’m glad I was pushed, because it’s some of my best work.”
Pharrell told cleveland.com that the new album is titled Seeing Sounds and not N¤3¤R¤D. With it’s unusual hook — a shout-out to “all the girls standing in line for the bathroom” — you can’t miss “Everybody Nose,” the slamming new single by N¤E¤R¤D. “We like to color the airwaves with something a little different,” vocalist Pharrell Williams said during a phone interview last week from New York City, where he was in the middle of a media blitz. “Too often, you hear songs about the same things, over and over again,” he said.
So we’ve all heard the hype over Miss Simpson’s third studio album. Originally rumored to be titled “Color Outside The Lines” the new title, “Bittersweet World,” reportedly came from something her boyfriend Pete Wentz yelled during sex. While the public has already heard a sampling of tracks (“Murder,” the first single “Outta My Head (Ay Ya Ya)” and the next single “Little Miss Obsessive“), they have yet to experience the true power of this album. Perhaps it’s a bit weird for Miss Simpson to have partnered with so many different artists on BW, but they all lend themselves well. Ashlee collaborated with some major players on this album including Timbaland, The Neptunes’ Chad Hugo, and Kenna.
Today, after many phone calls and playing phone tag with a half a dozen people, I was granted the opportunity to interview Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, otherwise known as production duo The Neptunes. If you aren’t familar with them, they have produced records for a lot of popular artists today, such as Jay-Z, Britney Spears, The Hives, Gwen Stefani, Kelis, Slim Thug, Snoop Dogg, etc. Pharrell typically sings on hooks and has had a pretty steady feature and solo career.
About half of Ego Trippin’ was produced by “QDT Muzic,” a team made up of Snoop, Teddy Riley, who was the Pharrell Williams of the late Eighties and early Nineties, and DJ Quik, who would have been the Dr. Dre of the same period, except that Dre already had the job. Along with Terrace Martin, who adds live instruments, they take vintage Eighties sounds — old-school synths, vocoders — and purée them into a hip-hop mix as dense as anything the Bomb Squad ever did.

The press from all over the world is having an advance taste of Madonna’s “Hard Candy” these days and they have been filled with information, teasers and exclusive previews over the past few months. So here’s what the Tribers are already familiar with, along with some more info. On the basis of the five tracks we heard, it sounds exactly like you’d expect a collaboration between Madonna and such super-producers as Timbaland and The Neptunes to sound: a slick, ultra-modern urban dance concoction. As has become customary for a Madonna album, it will be launched with a terrific lead-off single in the shape of 4 Minutes. “…His tracks for Hard Candy are crazy, I couldn’t fuck around, I had to come with it…” Williams says with a laugh. It’s a 8:5 split album with The Neptunes getting 8 and Timbaland & Co. getting 5 tracks.
