Neptunes-2001-1
The Neptunes, the creative, innovative production-songwriting duo of Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo who shaped pop and urban radio from the ’90s well into the 2000s thanks to crafting hits for Britney Spears, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Usher and Beyoncé, are nominated for the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame. Joining The Neptunes as nominees for the 2020 class are other visionaries who have carved out their own space in the music universe: the rap icons Outkast and rock pioneers R.E.M., who announced they had called it quits in 2011.

Buddy Reveals Working With The Neptunes (October 10) (2019)

hypebeast-magazine-rhythms-issue-26-buddy-01
Buddy sat down with hypebeast.com to talk about his future plans and upcoming music where he revealed being in the studio with The Neptunes recently.

When did you begin recording for your second album?
Probably two, three months ago. I’m so in it, I don’t even know. Time is a crazy concept. I’m just trying to finish, you know? Last week it was me, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo making music. I ain’t kick it with him since, you know – it’s been a minute. I hung out with him and Snoop Dogg, Kid Cudi. But we were working together. I was working with The Neptunes. That shit’s everybody’s dream. That’s probably the most exciting thing that happened to me.

It was fire because the next day, Pharrell had to bounce because he’s busy. Then I told Chad to pull up. He pulled up and he was kicking it with me. I was trying to write some of the raps because I had mumbled it and he was trying to figure it out. He would be like “Nah, that’s tight,” or, “You sure you trying do it like this?” I had help, you know. It was fire.

Do you think you’ll release new music this year?
Yes. I think I’m gonna drop this year.

Blink-182 Reveal Collaboration With The Neptunes featuring Lil’ Uzi Vert

muller-4993dfc418148
In a new interview on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show tied to the premiere of their new single “Happy Days,” Blink-182 let slip some information about an unlikely side project that they recorded while working on their upcoming, as-of-yet-untitled album. (“Bojmir,” or “rimjob” spelled backwards, is apparently one of the names in consideration.) The resilient pop-punk band has apparently been working on “a lot of collaborations” recently, and spent time in the studio with Pharrell Williams and Chad HugoThe Neptunes, that is—working on a collaborative song which also features Lil’ Uzi Vert.

“I came in to sing the end of this song, and Travis came into play drums,” bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus explained to Lowe. “And Pharrell was like, ‘Well, what about this idea?’…I was like, ‘Hmm, I don’t really know if that’s the right fit.’ And Travis was like, ‘Well, why don’t we just jump in and try and see what happens.’ So Travis plays drums on it. Sounds cool.” He continued: “We’re at Conway Studios, one of my favorite studios here in L.A… it’s just like Chad, and me, and Pharrell… And so I write these lyrics, I get in the booth and I sing it real quick.”


Later, Hoppus explained Lil’ Uzi Vert was in the studio with Pharrell, heard the song, and “loved it so much” that he asked if he could contribute to it. “I love stories about back in the day, where somebody is in the studio and somebody else comes in, and happens to be there. And it’s like, ‘Oh yeah, can I get on this record?’” Hoppus explained.

OTHERtone Episode 53 With The Neptunes, Scott Vener, Pusha T & Timbaland

Photos by R. Ostermaier. OTHERtone came to Virginia Beach with a panel featuring The Neptunes, Teddy Riley, Timbaland, and Pusha T. Pharrell Williams talked about the importance of bringing the Something In The Water Festival to Virginia Beach. “Black students did not come here to cause trouble, and we still want the HBCUs to come here. It’s not just music, it’s business, the community, the religious leaders, and it’s an inspiration. Music is the thread that connects it all. How long does a horse looks at itself in the water and sees itself and sees its strengths? This is VA and it’s time. The world is gonna see VA for the first time.”

Teddy Riley was an inspiration for Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo who both attended Princess Anne High School just a few blocks away from Teddy Riley’s recording studio. Pharrell says, “Teddy Riley was the guy that brought Micheal Jackson to Virginia. The biggest change in the industry is independence. Today any person can go online and express themselves. I enjoy the independence of putting stuff online and it goes to the masses.”  said Pharrell. “I knew The Neptunes were so far ahead of their time it’s like they were on Mars. You have a sound, you have to name it. After you create a sound give it a name so you can have a genre to self. If you don’t look like your music, it won’t connect.” says Teddy Riley.

When each of the artists was asked by Scott Vener, about new Virginia-based artists that impress them, Timbaland adds “Young Crazy has some good music out there”. Timbaland also added that when it comes to visual art in music, he doesn’t see the design, he only sees colors. Michael Chad and Pretty Boy are VA-based artists that Teddy Riley likes. Chad Hugo replied he wasn’t certain, and instead asked the crowd directly if there was anyone present worth listening to — allowing the crowd to shoot their shot and audition in front of the panel.

The experience became an incredibly engaging moment for attendees who had the opportunity to sing and rap in front of these incredibly successful musical tastemakers. One audience member had a demo reel of her work as a producer on a USB and offered it up for a listen and Timbaland took the USB and placed it in his pocket. Teddy Riley says, “Pharrell is the new chapter” when it comes to the evolution of how the music industry is changing. That certainly rings true to what Pharrell has done with SITW. Independent artists don’t have to travel to New York or Los Angeles to “make it big”, instead they can be inspired by the stories shared by these local powerhouses to make it on their own right in their backyard.
