The rapper stopped by 106 KMEL Radio Station in the Bay Area and spoke to Shay Diddy about the album in front of a select audience where he revealed having Pharrell his new album at 3:05, check it out below.
Los Angeles fans were in for a big surprise Sunday night when BIA and Pharrell Williams joined J Balvin at his sold-out concert. The three joined forces for the first concert performance of “Safari.” The Colombian singer and Williams have been friends for a while and we’ve all been following this bromance since day one. “It is a blessing anytime I get to work with Pharrell. He has been a great teacher, in music, fashion, my career and more,” the singer tells E! News.
“Having him and BIA join me on the recording of ‘Safari‘ was a dream come true, and I’m grateful that we all finally got the chance to perform the song together in concert.” The Energía Tour, presented by Buchanan’s, might just bring more celebrity guests since we know Balvin’s got some pretty famous friends. The 32-year-old singer continues to work with whisky brand for their #EsNuestroMomento campaign. Back in March, the singer gave fans an opportunity to collaborate with him. Balvin’s humble approach and constant evolution might just be the secret sauce of his unprecedented success seeing as “Mi Gente” is about to join the Billion club on YouTube and Beyoncé remixed the Balvin and Willy William smash hit. The track just skyrocketed to No. 3 on Billboard Hot 100.
While this sneaker imagery is clearly a mock-up, we have reason to believe that there’s a degree of truth to this leak. In place of the standard “Human Race” text that we find on Pharrell’s other NMD collaborations, this new version features “Pharrell” and “Chanel” typography, while we also see the addition of a treaded outsole and Chanel branding on the heel.
Upon reaching out to adidas for official word on the collaboration, which was leaked by Yeezy Mafia, Highsnobiety received the following statement: “adidas does not respond to unconfirmed reports and is unable to comment at this time.” Given Pharrell’s relationship with the French fashion house, the idea of a three-way collaboration of that nature does seem totally feasible.
On October 13, Beck will finally release his long-awaited followup to 2014’s Grammy-winning Morning Phase. Colors, as we referred to it in our October issue’s cover story, is a “boisterous, chart-friendly pop record,” a far cry from the folksy yearning of his last record and his “most accessible work to date.” Exclaim.ca detailed the challenges Beck faced in making the album, but over the course of their interview, the L.A. native touched on myriad other subjects including Pharrell Williams.
Sometimes, different artists tune into the same frequencies without meaning to, as Pharrell Williams and Beck did five years ago.
“It’s funny, I was working with Pharrell about four or five years ago. I’d known him for years, but we never worked together. I went in on the first day, with my manager, and as I was walking in [my manager] was like, ‘Do you have songs? What are you going to do? What’s your plan?’ “I was like, ‘I don’t have a plan, I just want to walk in and do something completely new and fresh. I just want to make something that, when you hear it, it just makes you happy.’ So I walked into the studio and Pharrell’s like, ‘We just finished this song, you have to hear this. Before we start anything, I just want to play you this. This is what I’m doing.’ And he played the song ‘Happy.’ I don’t really know how to explain that; that’s the part of music that’s just… like, I was writing something like that!”
Pharrell joined Stevie Wonder in the protest against racism that has swept the NFL and enraged Donald Trump. Pharrell Williams has become the latest music star to show solidarity with NFL players, by sharing in their “take a knee” protest against racial injustice in the US. Performing in Charlottesville, Virginia, the site of far-right marches in August, the R&B singer and rapper knelt in front of the crowd, saying: “If I want to get on my knees right now for the people of my city, for the people of my state, that’s what this flag is for”, a reference to the stars and stripes, and to freedom of speech. He also called for “freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of belief, freedom to live.”
