“I literally had Pharrell Williams banging his head against a wall trying to extract like a f*cking good note out of me. I’m like someone less famous would actually be more helpful. It’s like the last thing I need is like oh, so you have to learn to ride a motorcycle, we have Evel Knievel here to teach you! Like I don’t want that, just give me a guy!” ‘The Lion King’ is due 2019.

Pharrell Williams has been on the cover of Vogue India April Issue with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan where he talked about collaborations and the causes he cares about. Photos by Greg Swales. I’m convincing Pharrell to run for President. After all, the ‘woke’ hitmaker is the exact antithesis of Trump—fashionable, and vocal about climate change and women’s rights. But Pharrell isn’t interested. “I’m no role model; I’m just an advisor—that’s why as a producer, I’m able to push people in certain directions to find a uniqueness in their voice, their intentions and their purpose—that’s my job!”
No_One Ever Really Dies, his last album with N*E*R*D, was dubbed by critics as an anti-‘happy’, almost verging on protest, record. He may deny it but it’s also a work that merges his artist and activist self—he collaborated with artistes like Rihanna and Kendrick Lamar to put forth songs about gun regulation, immigrants as well as Trump. Does music then need to come with a message? “It doesn’t need to but it’s good that it does. I think everything we do should have some sort of message or intention, or else it’s just wasted energy.”
Pharrell’s always made his intentions clear—with his music as well as his projects outside. Only last year, the 45-year-old turned another leaf, becoming Dr Pharrell, an honorary title bestowed on him by NYU. He used his commencement speech at Yankee Stadium to celebrate humanities and address gender equality—“to lift up our women”, “remove imbalance” and “demand for better education.”
If you’ve ever heard Pharrell speak, you’ll know he genuinely champions women—through his music (his 2014 solo, GIRL was loosely seen as a feminist concept album) and his appearances (on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he talked about underrepresentation of female achievers). He sees gender without boundaries—his first perfume was a unisex fragrance named Girl, and last year, he made history by becoming the first man to star in a Chanel bag campaign. “I used to be scared of saying I’m a feminist because then someone would be like ‘oh then why did you have these lyrics’, but I am…because I believe in equality,” he says.
Here is a very interesting article about Pharrell Williams’ canceled R&B group ‘Affair’ by Janice Llamoca, check out the whole article Here. In 2005, Pharrell Founded a Latina R&B Girl Group Inspired by Selena and The Supremes. Tiffany Villarreal, Natasha Ramos, and Vanessa Marquez. Courtesy of Affair. It was at this time that a producer named Pharrell Williams, one half of The Neptunes, had a vision. “‘I had this dream about a girl group. And it was like The Supremes meets…’” singer Vanessa Marquez stops in the middle of her sentence. She’s trying to quote Pharrell and remember the exact words he said to her when he eagerly pulled her out of the studio one day in 2005.
“‘If there were three Selenas [Quintanilla, of course], you guys would conquer the U.S. and you guys would conquer the Latin world.’” Along with Natasha Ramos and Tiffany Villarreal, Marquez was a part of a would-be girl group named Affair. Their story closely resembles those of many R&B girl groups of the era – one filled with high hopes, ultimately ending in what-ifs. “When Pharrell speaks and he’s very passionate about something, he can easily convince you. He just has this power,” she says, recalling that even though she liked the idea, she felt a “little bummed.”
Marquez had been signed as a solo artist to The Neptunes-founded imprint Star Trak Entertainment since 2001. By that point, she had recorded vocals for Justin Timberlake’s 2002 megahit “Rock Your Body,” toured with Timberlake to promote his (mostly Neptunes-produced) debut album, and was featured on “Good Girl,” a single from the compilation The Neptunes Present…Clones. When the idea popped into Pharrell’s head, the California native of Mexican descent had just started working on her debut album.
Last year, Noreaga and Pharrell released a Lyric Video for their latest collaboration ”Uno Mas.” In 2018, the duo is returning with the Official Video finally for the single directed by Jason Goldwatch, who reworks Robert Palmer’s 1986 “Addicted To Love” pop culture hallmark, check it out below and make sure to cop it on iTunes.
