Pharrell: I’m Releasing A New Solo Album, But I Won’t Rap On It
In an interview with Complex, the man with the producer’s golden touch revealed that he is indeed working on a follow up to his 2006 debut solo album In My Mind, however age has halted his desire to rap:
No rapping. It’s focused. Like I told you, that’s the difference between 30 and 40. ’Cause I was 30, now I’m 40—and I’m not rapping.
Pharrell has also been up to his usual music curation moves behind the scenes with Pusha T recently telling BBC Radio One’s Zane Lowe about Skateboard P’s idea of The Clipse doing a Speakerboxx/Love Below-type album. Quoting Pharrell, Pusha explained Pharrell’s idea:
‘I think we should do a two sided [album]‘. You do what you do, he do what he do, and that’s what we do.’
There is no tentative release date for Pharrell’s as-of-yet untitled sophomore solo album.
