Here are all Upcoming Projects by The Neptunes, as Williams or Hugo, or both for the year 2016. When we talk about Upcoming Projects, the first thing that comes to our mind is of course Pharrell’s third studio album that he confirmed while airing OTHERtone Episode 8 with Scott Vener, Jamie Woon and Skepta, back in October and having that preposterous project already, I’ve gathered some of other interresting projects for this year.
Missy Elliott is finally releasing her anticipated sixth studio album after 11 years produced entirely by Pharrell and Timbaland, Pusha T. is coming with his ’King Push’ album in April with some Neptunes tracks on it and singer Usher is releasing his eight studio album that should also have a couple of Pharrell tracks on it. Christina Aguilera is working on her eight studio album with a production by Pharrell called ’Give Me Power’ and Puff Daddy will release his sixth studio album ’MMM’ with couple of Pharrell tracks.
Rapper Fabolous is coming with his ’The Young OG Project 2’. Then there is A$AP Mob member A$AP Ferg with his second album titled ‘Always Strive & Prosper‘ with no release date yet. Beyoncé has also registered two new songs on her BMI page that has Pharrell credited on and there are of course i am OTHER’s own artists Bia, Kap G and Maxine Ashley with their debut albums and Cris Cab with his second studio album including Robin Thicke with his eight studio album.
And how can we forget ’Frank Ocean’s second studio album that will be released this year and Gwen Stefani’s third studio album that should have a couple of Pharrell tunes despite the fact that she started from scratch after recording a whole album with Pharrell last year. Not sure if I should mention Kenna’s Songs For Flight’ but it looks like we might be getting that project after 9 years this year, check out the whole Upcoming Projects below.

Tori Kelly has been writing and performing music her whole life, but it was her February 2015 single “Nobody Love” that landed the 23-year-old a spot on the Billboard Hot 100. “It feels like it’s all led up to this,” Kelly tells EW. The California native auditioned for American Idol at age 16 and appeared on Star Search and America’s Most Talented Kid, beating out country singer Hunter Hayes. When her YouTube cover of Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You” went viral in 2012, she ended up under Scooter Braun’s tutelage — the same manager shared by Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and Carly Rae Jepsen.
And eventually linked up with Max Martin to produce her debut album Unbreakable Smile, which dropped in June. If you’re wondering what happened to the Tori Kelly x Pharrell collaboration, well she revealed that they haven’t finished their tune yet, according to her EW interview. I’d love to work with Pharrell [Williams] again because we never really finished the song we were going to do, so that would be cool.
Nile Rodgers has dropped a massive hint that Pharrell Williams features on the new Chic album. The 63-year-old pop legend is getting ready to unveil his band’s highly anticipated LP this year and has suggested his friend – who he collaborated with on Daft Punk’s 2013 smash hit ‘Get Lucky‘ – has contributed to it. When asked if Pharrell has lent his vocals to the record, he said with a laugh: “Maybe, Pharrell … maybe. I think maybe is a really good answer to that question! I want to leave some surprises until the album is out.”
Two confirmed guest stars for the album are Sir Elton John and Janelle Monae who duet on a track together. Nile admits the song he has created with the two vocalists has moved him to tears because it is so wonderful. Speaking to BANG Showbiz, he revealed: “Elton John and Janelle Monae sounds an unlikely pairing but the song came out phenomenal. It really is amazing, the song really brings tears to your eyes, it’s great. They were so passionate in their delivery, I couldn’t be happier with it.”
What’s next for you musically? Any new music coming soon?
I have been working on my album and I am really excited for fans to hear it. For me it’s important to take my time with music, and really put my heart into all my albums.
What is working with Pharrell like?
Pharrell is wonderful. He is so spiritual and you cannot help but feel a sense of calm and peace when you are around him.
Michael Jackson’s estate has prepped a special reissue of the singer’s classic 1979 album, Off The Wall, featuring a new Spike Lee-directed documentary Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off The Wall. The package will be available as CD/DVD and CD/Blu Ray editions on February 26th via Sony Legacy Recordings. Lee’s doc will make its world premiere January 24th at the Sundance Film Festival, with its TV debut scheduled for Showtime – on-air, on-demand and via the Internet – on February 5th at 9 p.m. EST. After premiering on Showtime, the film will be broadcast in territories across the world.
Michael Jackson’s Journey chronicles Jackson’s rise from child stardom to the iconic Off The Wall, using footage from Jackson’s personal archive and interviews with family members and contemporary performers. Pharrell Williams, John Legend, Questlove, Mark Ronson, The Weeknd, Marlon Jackson, Lee Daniels and L.A. Reid will all speak on the album’s influence and legacy. “A look at a chapter of his career that is rarely examined, Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall allows audiences to travel with Michael as he gets his start at Motown, strikes a new path with CBS Records and forges a relationship with legendary producer Quincy Jones,” reads a statement about the project.
Off The Wall – which ranked Number 68 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time – was Jackson’s breakthrough as an adult solo artist, featuring radio staples like “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” and “Rock With You.” Recorded at age 20, the LP showcased his evolving maturation as a singer and songwriter, blending elements of funk, pop balladry, disco and jazz.
The longtime children’s program returns to TV on January 16th including a new track with Pharrell titled ’B Is For Book’. The countdown is on for Sesame Street’s return to television on Jan. 16 at new home HBO. The premium cable network dropped a new trailer for the classic children’s series on Thursday, which features famous faces who have appeared on the program in the past, including Jon Hamm, Pharrell Williams, Tina Fey, Usher and Tracee Ellis Ross. In the minute-long trailer, Sesame Street fans watch their favorite cartoon characters Ernie, Burt, Abby Cadabby, Elmo, Count Von Count, Oscar The Grouch, Cookie Monster, Big Bird and more play along with celebrities in the HBO teaser.
“On January 16, an all-new season of Sesame Street, brought to you by the letters H-B-O,” the trailer’s text reads. The new season will feature both new and classic episodes at its new home. On Aug, 13, Sesame Street inked a five-season deal with the cable network, which allows the iconic kids’ franchise to deliver nearly twice as much new content per season. PBS will air the new episodes nine months after they first run on HBO.
You might know Pharrell Williams as a judge on NBC’s The Voice, or you might know him for his hit single, “Happy,” but chances are – you probably know him. The singer, songwriter and rapper has spent a considerable amount of time in the spotlight, but there are still some things about him that many people don’t know. With that in mind, here we present our list of 15 things you probably didn’t know about Pharrell. Check out part one below, and stay tuned for part two, coming soon!
Number Fifteen: He Went to Church With Timbaland. When Pharrell was younger, he actually went to the same church as Timbaland.
Number Fourteen: He Was Bullied as a Kid. When Pharrell was young, he used to hang out with white kids in school. Because of this, his classmates used to call him “oreo,” which is a derogatory term to describe someone who is black on the outside and white on the inside.
Bia once lived a comfortable life in her hometown of Boston, but as soon as she took a real shot at success, that all changed. After meeting her current manager, Fam-Lay, through a mutual friend, it didn’t take long for the rapper’s career to take flight—literally. Within a short while, she was on a plane to meet Pharrell Williams, who later signed her to his i am OTHER imprint.
While Bia’s story might translate to every up and coming artist’s dream, she’ll be the first to assure you that her journey was just as daunting as the next. “My first apartment didn’t come through. I faced sleeping on couches and floors—mattresses on the floor. You probably wouldn’t think I would be gritty enough to go do that, but I did,” she told STASHED. “I took the move from Boston to Miami just to learn as much as I could under Pharrell, Shae (co-manager), and Fam.”
