Here is Jesse Rankins, Jonathan Wells and Eddie Smith III’s aka WatchTheDuck’s latest single produced and featuring Pharrell. It sounds like it’s been produced in the early 00’ cuz Pharrell is back at being weird again, by weird I mean pretty awesome, just listen to the hook to the tune. ’Stretch 2-3-4’ is on WatchTheDuck’s new EP, The Trojan Horse, via Dim Mak/ Epic Records. The EP also includes T.I., ScHoolboy Q, Afrojack and Steve Aoki executive produced by Pharrell. And after several rumours of ’WatchTheDuck’ being on Pharrell’s label ’i am OTHER’, Pharrell confirmed the signee on his Twitter last week, so from now on you’ll get the latest news from ’WTD’ on theneptunes.org, make sure to cop it on iTunes.
For everyone who isn’t familiar with ’WatchTheDuck’ (WTD, stylized as WatchTheDuck), is a musical trio from Montgomery, AL. signed to the Epic Records formed by friends Eddie Smith III, Jesse Rankins, and Jonathan Wells DJs, producers, and musicians originally from Montgomery, Alabama but moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 2010. The name of the group comes from a phrase that they use to describe their work. Smith has been quoted as saying, “Everybody sees the duck traveling smoothly on top of the water but nobody sees it kicking hard as hell under it, struggling to stay afloat.”
They released their debut (EP) on 2013 titled ’Anatidaephobia’ which had their famous single ’Poppin’ Off’ and they just released their second project via Epic Records/i am OTHER titled ’The Trojan Horse’. Y’all remember them also being on T.I.’s Paperwork album from last years on the Pharrell produced tunes ‘G Shit‘ and ‘Light ‘Em Up (RIP Doe B)’
