By Larry Bartleet. Ahead of her upcoming tour and releasing second album ‘All I Need’ on February 5, Foxes spoke to NME about touring with Pharrell, her love of Cyndi Lauper, and her Guinness World Record.
What delayed it – going on tour with Pharrell?
I was in the middle of doing the second album and I got a call. You don’t really say no! I took my laptop – most of it did get written while I was on tour with him.
Did you eat together? Did you hang out?
We did quite a lot. At the beginning I was like, “Fuck, it’s Pharrell.” We had lots of catering hangouts. I was really impressed because he was constantly working, constantly making beats. Two seconds before he’d go onstage he’d be writing music. I just think he doesn’t really stop.
With just one official EP released so far, and the brand new ‘Something For Nothing‘, you’d be forgiven for not having yet heard his considered, soulful tones but this changes now. During the filming with Brand New Artists MTV caught up with the ‘Fuel To The Fire‘ singer to talk his influences, getting the nod from Pharrell and more.
Last year Rationale was propelled to No.2 in Spotify’s Global Viral Chart when Pharrell Williams spun the elegant ‘Fast Lane‘ on his Beats1 Show OTHErtone. “Pharrell Williams was really, really complimentary about my music alongside Justin Timberlake which was nuts in itself, and these are people that I used to stand in a mirror in my bedroom throwing shapes to and trying to mimic and all of a sudden they were complimenting my music.”

By Danielle Howe. It’s no secret that 2016 is the year for Pusha T. Following the explosive release of his latest album Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, and being named G.O.O.D. Music’s newest President, the Virginia native has his sights set for greatness – and promises nothing less. However, before he heads down the path of musical domination, the “Crutches, Crosses, Caskets” rapper took a moment to reflect, inviting Vice to spend a day with him for their new docu-series Autobiographies. Premiering on Verizon’s new streaming platform go90, the insightful series showcases the personal stories of several artists, including A$AP Ferg, Nigel Sylvester, Jackie Cruz, Ty Dolla $ign and many more.
Sharing a personal story is no easy feat for someone who takes privacy seriously – particularly when it’s something that hits home. For Pusha, seeing himself tell the world about the untimely death of his former road manager was a bit jarring. He expressed to STASHED his feelings towards the senseless violence that caused his death and how he felt watching the documentary for the first time. “Man it got so emotional for me,” said Push. “And you know to be in a different setting and watching myself talk about it, it struck a nerve – left and right.”
