Franklin’s current single, “123 Victory (Remix),” is doing well on the charts. The offering was his fifth number one record on the Billboard Gospel Songs chart. He collaborated with Grammy award-winning producer, Pharrell Williams on the record, which represents his versatility as an artist. Singersroom.com spoke with the gospel veteran about working with Pharrell, their latest single, longevity as an artist, and more.
“Pharrell and I have been friends for over 15 years. And for a long time, we’ve talked about doing a song together. It worked out where he can be featured on the song. We were exploring different sounds because we didn’t know the rhythmic sound for the song at first. In the end, the creative process turned out good. “123 Victory (Remix)” was number one on the charts; he’s just a talented person.” Make sure to get ‘123 Victory (Remix)’ on iTunes.
