Pharrell partnered with David Grutman in opening Swan and Bevy Bar, a new restaurant and cocktail lounge slated to debut in the fall in the former Fendi Casa space at 90 NE 39th Street under Grutman’s brand new Groot Hospitality company. The pair have been working on Swan for the past two years. Grutman is already an established restaurant businessman with Komodo, OTL, and Planta.
But Williams is a newbie who jumped into the biz with Williams Family Kitchen, a product line inspired by his father’s cooking. While Swan will serve food downstairs Bar Bevy upstairs is “cocktail focused,”. “I’m excited about Swan and Bar Bevy and the amazing chef who will be joining us,” Grutman says.
One of the singles they’ve released in the build-up to SR3MM is “Chanel,” featuring what Swae Lee says is his favorite Pharrell verse of all time. The song, which comes from Jxmtroduction, Jxmmi’s solo album, didn’t always feature Pharrell, though. Jxmmi sent Mike Will Made-It the track, who said it was a “smash.” “I didn’t understand how good the song was,” Jxmmi admits. “A couple months later, Mike Will sent me back the song and it says featuring Pharrell. Time stopped, wherever I was at, everything froze. I said, ‘There’s only one person named Pharrell.’” “He’s the third member of Rae Sremmurd,” Swae Lee joked.

Sometime in the near future, he plans to create a whole new neighborhood in his hometown of Johannesburg.
Black Coffee sat down with LA Weekly where he revealed working with Pharrell. “I’m working on an album. My other dream collab is Pharrell, so I’m working with him. Hopefully that song is going to be a single. I have great, great respect for him as an artist, but more so as a person. He’s one of the coolest people I’ve ever met.“ Thanks to pappoo for the info!
