Their forthcoming album, titled 2008, features production from the likes of Pharrell Williams, T.H.C., and Terrace Martin, and is bound to make noise amongst feel-good rap fans, not only in the West Coast circuit, but all over the globe. A feature from Polo Grounds labelmate A$AP Ferg doesn’t do any harm in that regard either.
Their singles so far, like the Ferg-assisted cut “F**k Yo’ DJ,” their Pharrell-produced “Last Kiss,” and “Rich White Friends” display a rare lightheartedness that falls somewhere in between fun, ignorant rap, and just pure funk. As they delve into their upbringing, it begins to make sense how they act in such a fashion. From adventures at Miami’s K.O.D. to studio sessions with Skateboard P, OverDoz. certainly has some stories to back up their reputation as the wild bunch from the City of Angels.
Robin Thicke suits up in style while stepping out for a performance for VH1′s Save The Music Foundation on Wednesday (August 26) in New York City. The 38-year-old singer got behind the piano and sang for students at East Quogue Elementary School of Long Island.
“I can’t imagine what my life would’ve looked like without music, so it’s important for me to pay it forward by supporting ways to keep music in schools,” Robin said in a statement. Later in the day, Robin was spotted dressed more casual while leaving his hotel.
Rafito from PharrellWilliams.br is doing a ‘G I R L’ E-Book with the ‘G I R L’ lyrics, it looks pretty dope, check it out. “It all started cause I wanted to put the lyrics on iphone, and I thought about make it cool. And now, 3 months later, I am finally finishing. But i’m so excited about “Brand New” that I want to share it with you guys before I finish the whole thing. Hope you like it”
Stormzy returns with a new 1 and a half minute freestyle in collaboration with Adidas Originals by Nigo. “The one before the skeng…”
Here is Francesco Yates’ funky single “Change The Channel.” The Toronto-based singer recounts his instant connection with Grammy winner Pharrell Williams. “I met Pharrell in the studio the day before we recorded; ‘Change the Channel’ and had a long chat about writing music and really got to know each other.
We talked about the TV show Duck Dynasty, our favorite cereals, Mars Volta and Led Zeppelin.” Yates explains his second single “is about a cat and mouse chase with a girl. She’s alluring and flirtatious and the man loves the chase. He wants to change the channel and switch up, try something new with this particular girl.”
Scattered with piercing Prince squeals, Yates reaches rockstar status with wildly distorted guitar licks. He will be promoting the arrival of his self-titled debut EP — out September 11 — while touring with label mate Jess Glynne this fall. Aside from Yates’s jaw-dropping chops, producers Pharrell Williams and Robin Hannibal lend the the 19-year-old their Midas touch. Check out the single below.

Music’s biggest stars will be hitting the stage this weekend at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night. The 2015 VMA performers have been announced, as Pharrell Williams, A$AP Rocky, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are on this year’s lineup. Pharrell will perform as a solo artist for the first-time at the VMAs, so will A$AP Rocky, who previously joined Rihanna on stage in 2012. Hosted by Miley Cyrus, the 2015 MTV VMAs takes place this Sunday at 9 p.m. EST, live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
“This is a show that allows us to show these people how special they are and what good they can do in the world if they just continue to believe in themselves,” Williams says. Stefani announced she would be returning to the music competition back in June, saying, “I’m coming back and am so excited! I can’t believe I get to return to The Voice. It’s so inspiring to be around such incredible talent and music. I’m looking forward to working again with Adam, Blake and Pharrell. I love those guys.”
Recently, The Voice added several performers to its advisor roster. Selena Gomez, Brad Paisley, and John Fogerty have all signed on to be team advisors, along with Rihanna, who will act as a key advisor to all of the judges this season. Check out the exclusive first-look photo and clip above before The Voice returns Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
Forum Member and Admin of NERDskyRock Maxime Javel managed to fly to Los Angeles, and while being there, he stoped by I am OTHER and had the chance to meet his Idol Pharrell Williams in the studio. I remember a month ago, I had a conversation with Max how things are finally starting to work out day by day and we’ve been talking about the Grindin Project we’re working on and how we eventually gonna have a conversation with Pharrell some day.
A month later it’s just surreal what has happened a few days ago to Max. After meeting the whole I am OTHER crew, Pharrell came to say Hi while playing some crazy beats in the studio. This is truly a dream come true for every Neptunes Fan, after all these years and all the hard work Max has done together with Creatrice with NERDSkyRock Fan Page, it finally paid off. Congratulations from the whole Grindin/Neptunes Family Max, you truly deserved it!!

Apple launches its latest music venture through the Apple Music Festival, a bigger rebranded iTunes Festival that will be held this September at the Roundhouse in London. Some of the biggest names in the music industry to anticipate this time are One Direction, Pharrell, Florence + The Machines, and Disclosure. The entire show can be seen live and on-demand on Apple Music.
Fans will also have the chance to listen to Beats 1, Apple’s recently launched radio station. Apple will also show backstage news, as well as footage on Apple Music Connect. The rebranded Apple Music Festival will rock for 10 days from September 19 to 28, instead of the usual one-month long celebration. The rebrand is a move to promote Apple Music as Apple’s main music brand. iTunes and Beats are just its secondary music products. This strategy doesn’t come as a surprise, but it is fascinating to see Apple transition to streaming.
