Thanks to Nadeska at MTV, Snoop Dogg has finally confirmed his upcoming album with Pharrell publicly. A few weeks ago, the Dogg previewed one track that he recently did with Skateboard P. ‘It’s a great record me and Pharrell did from top to bottom. It feels good and I’m happy to be back in the studio working with one of my favorite producers and homeboys,”
Snoop told MTV News on the BET Hip Hop Awards carpet. “It’s different — it’s completely different than anything we’ve ever done. It feels good, sounds good, looks good.” And, from what my friends say that are working on the album, it’s going to be Snoop’s best album in years..
The brand new series of Surprise Surprise started on Wednesday 22nd October at 8pm on ITV. “The girl named Holly is doing all sorts of things for various charities ever since her father passed away from brain cancer. So her friends decided it was time she would get something in return. Pharrell stopped by to meet his fan and her reaction is priceless!”
The list of artists Pharrell Williams has worked with is getting LONG. But could the likes of Daft Punk, Britney Spears, Ed Sheeran and Kelis soon be joined by One Direction? Well, after the Happy singer’s interview with Nick Grimshaw on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show, it’s looking more likely. “I would. What’s the worst that could happen?” said the 41-year-old when asked if he would ever work with the group.
“Something that we don’t think is good? We don’t put it out,” he added. When asked if he would have the final say on any new material being released, the producer said: “There’s ways to deal with that. “There’s ways to work it out. Even if I have to step away because I don’t consider it my work any more, then that’s fine.”
Just when we thought Pharrell Williams couldn’t possibly have anything else up his sleeve, the modern day Renaissance man has done it again. In between his collection for Adidas Originals and his new fragrance for COMME Des GARÇONS, Pharrell is teaming up with French leather goods purveyor Moynat to create a capsule range of bags. In typical Pharrell fashion, these won’t be just leather regular bags but instead shaped like vintage steam locomotives.
The Train Bag will be crafted from hand-tooled acrylic resin or hand-carved ebony. Moynat creative director Ramesh Nair told WWD that he sourced a specialty atelier in Italy to carve each train, which takes three days to complete. He also acknowledged the nostalgic nature of trains, telling WWD, “Every grown-up guy has a child inside.” From the sounds of it, no detail was spared in the bags’ design, with the resin bags to feature a brass smokestack, side rods and steam-dome clasp.
The dream team! Supermodel Cara Delevingne ‘has recorded her first single with Pharrell Williams’ as she prepares to launch her music career. She has been steadily working on her first real music project. And it seems Cara Delevingne’s plans to become a respected singer are most certainly on track as the model has reportedly recorded a single with hitmaker Pharrell Williams.
The supermodel and the award-winning musician have reportedly spent the past eight months working together on material for the 22-year-old’s official foray into the music industry. Insiders claim that the pair filmed a music video for what is likely to be Cara’s first single in Paris over the past week as Cara partners up with Pharrell’s ‘i am OTHER’ business label. A source to The Sun’s Dan Wootton: ‘They’re going to release the song without warning, complete with video and global launch.

Want your song to top the charts? Just add backup singers. A new study published in Musicae Scientiae, the Journal of the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music, suggests that using backup vocals may give an edge to artists and producers trying to craft the next big hit.
Professors from the University of Southern California’s business and music schools – along with a marketing professor at Italy’s Bocconi University – analyzed the acoustic components of the most popular songs over the past 55 years, to determine which recipes worked best. They looked both at the 1,029 songs that reached No. 1, plus the songs that made Billboard’s Hot 100 chart but never climbed higher than No. 90, and they classified the instrument and vocal combinations audible in each.
Pharrell sat down at the RTL Late Night in The Netherlands to talk about his recent fame, where also Cris Cab performed his World Wide Hit ‘Liar Liar’ and a special performance by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra performing Happy, check it out below.
