Fly Raleigh Ritchie01Raleigh Ritchie’s “idol” Pharrell Williams asked for a one-to-one chat to discuss a future collaboration. The 25-year-old singer – who also plays Grey Worm, the leader of the ‘unsullied’ in HBO television series ‘Game Of Thrones‘ – met the ‘Freedom‘ star when he travelled to the UK and personally requested the meet. And though they are yet to lock in studio time, Raleigh – whose real name is Jacob Anderson – told BANG Showbiz:

“When he came over to the UK, he invited me to go and meet him at a show he was doing and that’s when we chatted. It was just cool to meet somebody that I respect a lot and have since I was very young … He is one of my idols. He was just very cool. The thing that is cool about him is he’s exactly what you expect him to be. We were talking about a song which we didn’t end up doing … I ended up chatting to him for about an hour, and hopefully we’ll work together in the future.”
