Pharrell Williams Talks Working With Ariana Grande (Video)


Ariana Grande’s new album Sweetener dropped on Friday (Aug. 17) and it’s possibly her most openhearted yet. The songs delve deep into her feelings on love and happiness, and Pharrell Williams came prepared to put her thoughts into music. The producer joined Grande at her Sweetener Slumber Party, where the Zach Sang Show caught a cute snippet of the two discussing their experience working together.

“I don’t mix well with people who have crazy egos and right away he was super fun and chill and nice and there wasn’t any of that,” Grande noted about Williams. “He was more worried about getting to know me and making sure I was comfortable.” The songstress recalled a moment when she was talking about her emotions, and the producer started coming up with the title track mid-conversation. Williams also remembered the moment, adding, “You’re matching a feeling, if that makes any sense.

You’re feeling whats going on and you’re kind of like a stenographer trying to figure out what that is, and to her point about making her feel comfortable — my point of view as a producer and as a writer, if she’s not comfortable, she’s never going to give me the pure her.” “Not a lot of people let all of that out,” he continued, highlighting how rare Ari’s emotional openness is. “They want to work behind the confines of their cool or what they’re comfortable with. This record, she really unzipped.”

Ariana Grande Reveals Pharrell Produced Half Of Her New Album, ‘The Light Is Coming’ Live

ariana-grande-cover-story
Ariana Grande sat down with The Fader to talk about her new album ‘Sweetener’ and working with Pharrell, she also performed her next single at ‘Wango Tango’ ‘The Light Is Coming’ produced by Pharrell Williams featuring Nicki Minaj check it out below.

“Way before any of this, Ariana knew it was time to elevate herself. In 2016, she met with Pharrell and told him: “Take me somewhere completely new — let’s just go.” The pair made “a million” songs together, and she says she enjoyed the freedom to create without a label’s imposed due date. Most importantly, though, as Ariana recalls, he sat her down, pointed at her heart, and told her it was time she show her fans what’s really going on in there. Over email, he explained his producer role with her as “part listener, part therapist, part stenographer.

Ariana was sick of straightforward song structures and wanted lots of plot twists, which is one of Pharrell’s particular strengths. Take, for example, “The Light Is Coming,” a twitchy new wave track — a far cry from the easily digestible songs of her past. That kind of creative experimentation might make a major label skittish, but as Pharrell told me, the events in Manchester gave a hard reset to the project’s expectations. Half of the tracks that make up the album’s final tracklist are produced by him. “In all honesty, I feel like [after Manchester] was when different people from the record company actually started to understand what we were trying to do,” Pharrell said. “It’s unfortunate that that situation is what gave it context, but they were able to really see it then. And that’s the truth.”

Ariana Grande – Sweetener (August) (2018)
Confirmed Tracks Produced By Pharrell:
 The Light Is Coming feat. Nicki Minaj (Single) (June 20)
 Blazed feat. Pharrell
 Borderline feat. Missy Elliott
