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.

‘He’s a white boy with soul’ says Pharrell. SG Lewis, a 20 year old music producer from Reading, UK who blends influences of club music with the emotive touch of classic songwriting to create his own personal sound and made himself known to PMR by way of remixing Jessie Ware’s recent single ‘You & I (Forever)’. Scott Vener and Pharrell played his track ‘Warm’ on OTHERtone Episode 1 last year where Justin Timberlake and Cara Delevingne were guests.
Pharrell said, “He’s a white boy with soul” and JT piped up, like, “what are you trying to say?!” Now the ‘white boy’ just released his new EP with Chad Hugo with the single ‘Meant To Be’ a sass-filled funk groover, produced by Chad Hugo and SG Lewis himself taken from his ‘Yours’ EP, that released on Friday (August 19th). Check out the tune below and make sure to cop it on iTunes.

The Long Beach rapper’s upcoming EP will have a visual component directed by Nabil Eldurkin. After announcing his Prima Donna EP earlier this week, Vince Staples has shared links on his website to two “private screening” events in Los Angeles and New York City on his personal website. It seems as though the Long Beach rapper will be throwing his hat into the ring with Beyoncé, ScHoolboy Q, and, most recently, Frank Ocean, who have released extensive visual projects to accompany their albums.
A flyer for the events reads, “story by Vince Staples and Nabil Elderkin,” Nabil is a Los Angeles director who is well-known for his work with Kanye West and Frank Ocean among others. The flyer also lists musical contributions from James Blake, DJ Dahi, No I.D., and Chad Hugo. Apply to win tickets to Vince Staples’ Prima Donna EP private screenings here.
The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) will premiere Hidden Figures, Theodore Melfi’s new film about a group of African-American women NASA scientists, to the festival, as well as a free public performance from the film’s producer Pharrell. The concert, will take place on September 10 at the downtown intersection of King and John Street, coincides with a sneak preview of the film for TIFF members, BlogTO reports. Members will get special dibs on front row seats, but the concert will be viewable by the general public as well.
Following strong social media reaction to the first trailer shown during the Olympics, and huge scores in a first test screening, the Ted Melfi-directed Hidden Figures is looking like it might figure heavily in the upcoming awards-season race for Fox 2000 and Chernin Entertainment. Fox is finalizing plans to bring scenes of the movie to the Toronto Film Festival on September 10, where tastemakers will get a preview, and an outdoor performance by Pharrell Williams, who composed the music with Hans Zimmer and who is also a producer of the film.
Sources tell Deadline that Williams (whose last Hollywood foray was the Oscar-nominated Despicable Me 2 theme “Happy”) will likely pack the stage with pals for a star-studded event in Canada. The footage presentation will be followed by a Q&A with cast and filmmakers. In addition, I’ve heard that Fox is working on plans to qualify Hidden Figures for the Academy Awards, likely with a two-city showing in late December. The film opens wide January 13, Martin Luther King weekend. Hidden Figures won’t be ready to be shown in its entirety in Toronto, but word is it might premiere at AFI. The studio said none of what I heard has been set.
It looks like Kirk Franklin is gonna release his collaboration with Pharrell Williams on Friday according to the hashtag #VictoryInThreeDays. Kirk has been in the studio with Pharrell on May 3rd, stay tuned for more information.
