“Hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas! Hope you like this little medley I put together for you And you can’t say I “used too much auto-tune” because I produced the song on this cover, and I don’t even know how to apply auto-tune, lol. I recorded this song live with my Uncle Charlie! He is a talented pianist.”
“Hey guys! So we finally figured out why the music panning is only on the right side. Final Cut Pro messes with that when I edit the videos, but from now on hopefully both of your ears will get to enjoy my covers equally Thanks for bringing it to my attention..1000 times”

As we already know, Pharrell was in the studio this February with A$AP Rocky to work on some muzika, but it looks like the tunes they did together won’t make it on A$AP Rocky’s debut album, because Pharrell is only featured on the ‘Pretty Flaco’ tune, which will be only a remix as a Bonus Track produced by SpaceGhostPurrp. Check out the preview of the tune below, Long.Live.A$AP is due January 15th 2013. Thanks to DJ Green.

Since 2008, “Tie My Hands” has been an often overlooked gem in both Weezy and Robin Thicke’s respective catalogs; despite being performed at the 2009 Grammys. Thicke’s haunting hook was a perfect compliment to an immensely introspective Wayne revealing his rawest emotions on a New Orleans city that was still ravaged by Katrina, then-President Bush and more. The song may have not impressed you, personally, but for one solider the record kept him breathing when death appeared to be sitting on his doorstep.
Private First Class Lander Chappell was the victim of a pressure grenade which cost him a leg while serving in Afghanistan. To avoid slipping into shock, a fellow soldier suggested he sing his favorite song to help take his mind off the explosion until medical assistance arrived. The two-minute clip is a testament to faith and determination with Weezy and Thicke playing the role of soundtrack. More importantly, there’s this: Happy holidays to the troops and their families here in America and all across the world. Quite frankly, that can’t be said enough.

According to T.I., Pharrell has been in the studio with Beyoncé to work on some new muzika. The King, T.I., held court with the Queen when he remixed Beyoncé’s “Dance For You” earlier this year. But he first he got approval from Bey herself. He called up Pharrell, who happened to be in the studio with the “Single Ladies” singer, and asked if she supported his idea to add a verse. “That very night, I did it and got it back to them, and they gave me the nod of approval and I ran with it,” Tip told Rap-Up TV. T.I. is aware that Bey has a new album on the way and he’s more than willing to help out. “She has full knowledge of the fact that if she needs me for anything that I am there at the drop of a hat,” he said. Thanks to Creatrice.
Thanks to K0tik.
Here is T.I.’s latest single produced by Pharrell that features Cee-Lo Green on the hook, titled ‘Hello’ it’s a pretty nice tune with the guitars and smooth synths with Grand Hustler’s forward-moving approach and the cut seems more appropriate for the confines of a car cruising the coastline, en route to economical endeavors. You know, more work and less relaxing, check it out below. Trouble Man is due December 18th. ‘Hello’ can be pre-ordered on iTunes before it’s December 11th release.

By Andrea Monique. Everyone knows Pharrell, the man behind funky beats for Jay-Z, N*E*R*D, Snoop Dogg and countless other musical heavy weights, but these days Pharrell Williams is emerging as an afficiando of cool with his new book Pharrell: Places, And Spaces I’ve Been. Pharrell donned a blonde buzz cut and a camouflage tux at the Design Miami event that celebs including Jay-Z and Beyoncé have flocked to. In this rare sit-down, Pharrell’s eccentricities are on full display, from his affinity for Johnson & Johnson baby lotion to his appreciation of Andy Warhol’s Campbell soup painting. He also revealed his key to success. “If you want to be happy, find something you love that you would do for free,” he explained.
“If you could possibly squeeze in two other things which is a way to service humanity and to actually get paid for it, that’s a very happy life.” The hit beat-maker has certainly made a nice living from his passions which range from music production to fashion and art. He’s found a way to give back through the Pharrell Williams Youth Resource Center in his hometown of Virginia Beach, where he provides guidance for youth in the arts. The grammy winner acknowledges that the trend of musicians publishing books is nothing new, but the always-trendy producer feels he is ahead of a new wave. “In the music industry they tend to go really deep and I don’t know that it’s time for that in the ether. I think people want to feel good and be enlightened and happy.” Places And Spaces I’ve Been was born from the hit-maker’s frustration of formulaic interviews, instead of writing a book about himself he chose to feature his mentors, Anna Wintour, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Buzz Aldrin, Takashi Murakami and Nigo.
”If you really want my fans to know something about me, then let’s tell them the most important thing, which is colloborate with people you can learn from.” With all of his accolades, it’s interesting to learn that the tastemaker still considers himself a student while in the “space” of his wide range of mentors. As the microphone made the rounds in the audience, fellow Pharell: Places And Spaces I’ve Been contributor Kanye West had a question: “Pharrell, I wanted to ask you about your taste in art and how you develop such a high taste level and influence so many people around the world through pop culture and music and the visuals.” Press play above to watch Pharrell’s enlightening response to Kanye’s question and surprise visit.
