Skepta Has Pharrell On New Album On ‘Numbers’
Brittish Grime artist Skepta announced the Artwork and his Tracklist to his Fourth Studio album titled ‘Konnichiwa’ that will have a Pharrell collaboration. The two teamed up on the tune ‘Numbers’ which will be released on May 6th. Skepta shed some light on working with Williams during a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Beats One’s #OTHERtone Radio: “Pharrell loves music. I don’t know how much money he has, or how much he’s trying to make. But I know whatever financial situation he’s in his music is always going to be sick. When I’m in the studio with him it’s like I’m working with someone I’ve known all my life.
“I knew I had an obligation to represent the country when I did this album. Not just different MCs, but sonically. I know what is on my back with this album and I’ve got every element from London needed. I don’t want to announce the MCs but it’s very well rounded. And Pharrell’s blessed me. People respect him. I don’t think grime has ever been respected, it’s not seen as a nice sound. But having Pharrell bless my album, maybe you can see that the freeness of his music; that’s what we’re doing as well.” You can Pre-Order the album now on iTunes, check out the whole Tracklist with the Artwork below.
