Co-written by Pharrell Williams and produced by Wyclef Jean, this track will be on Cris’s Mercury Records debut, coming soon.
“For me, I was bored, i have to say, I was honestly bored by music everything sounded like, you know if you turn it to a pop station everything was like one long ass dance song and if you turn to the urban stations, everything felt like one long ass emo, hip/hop quasi R&B record… it kind of just felt that way. And I wasn’t mad at it. But there was also incredible things you know like Little Dragon, and Yuna, and A$AP.”
Props to miss info.
Continuing on with his conversation with miss info, Skateboard P spoke on his working relationship with the legendary composer for the upcoming Academy Awards.

Skateboard P and the NMC’s miss info sat down and spoke on his latest gig, scoring the 84th Annual Academy Awards with the legendary Hans Zimmer (airing February 26th). Hollywood money > rap money.
PREVIOUS: Yuna – Live Your Life (Video)
The Pharrell Williams-produced track from Yuna’s full-length album will drop a video soon, and that is a very good thing because this song fucking rocks. Yuna’s album itself drops April 24th on FADER Label.
Skateboard P sat down with MTV and briefly spoke on working with Hova…
“We — I say ‘we’ because I’m in Throne mode — we’re in a great place creatively,” Jay said of his and Kanye West’s chemistry. “You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year. You know, we’re really in a great place creatively. We really found our zone.”
With things still in the works, Pharrell is reluctant to let go of any info. Instead, he’d rather just let Jay speak on things when he is ready. “Well, you know, he’s very discreet about details and stuff,” P said. “I’m just a filmmaker, musically. I let everybody else play the roles.”
Skateboard P linked up with a variety of artists over the last few, and the folks at BBC have been chronicling each one. It has me thinking, out of everybody you see pictured here which artist do you think will rock over a Pharrell Williams/The Neptunes beat best? Check out all the pictures, then hit the c-section below with your answer.
*waits for someone to pick an artist not pictured, like Reh Dogg or some dumb shit*
Ever since I watched her perform live last month I’ve been a fan of the Malaysian singer-songwriter’s music. Now signed to FADER Label she drops her first single from her upcoming new album, produced by half of The Neptunes. Yes, yes and yes.
