Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” may be the song of the summer, but the summer belongs to Pharrell Williams - besides producing and providing vocals on the current #1 song in the world, he’s featured on Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” Frank Ocean’s upcoming record, Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail, Kelly Rowland’s new album, and he even sings the hook on 2Chainz’ new single “Feds Watching.” You may have also heard his work in the movies—he composed the soundtrack for “Despicable Me, “ and assisted Hans Zimmer on the “Man of Steel Score.”
Artist of the Week – Pharrell Williams
Pharrell’s sound as a producer is unmistakable, and his work across genres–with hundreds of artists—makes this station that much more fun to listen to. You’ll hear his work as a solo artist, with the Neptunes and N.E.R.D., and you’ll hear his work as a producer and contributor- from his 1992 debut on Wreckx-N-Effect’s party classic “Rump Shaker” to his work on Jay-Z’s latest record, this station represents the musical DNA of one of the most talented artists in the game. This is the summer of Pharrell Williams, and he is Slacker’s Artist Of The Week.
