Pharrell Williams: I want to work with Prince

Pharrell Williams wants to work with the Prince and thinks the ‘Purple Rain’ hitmaker makes all artists wonder why artists perform.

The Sony Brits After PartyThe ‘Happy’ hitmaker insists it would be a dream to team up with the ‘Purple Rain’ hitmaker and get into the studio to work on material.

He said: “I’d love to work with Prince. I would love to work with Steely Dan, Donald Fagen, I’d love to work with Elton John … [Prince] makes us wonder why we all do this.”

The 41-year-old singer and producer has also revealed he would love to write the next James Bond theme song, following in the footsteps of Adele, who won an oscar for her hit ‘Skyfall’.

He said: “If they asked me to do it, like my own version? Yeah! Course! It’d be so fun. When The Beatles did it, it was amazing. Who wouldn’t want that opportunity?”

Asked if he would record the vocal or ask another artist, he replied: “I wrestle with myself on things like that, but certainly if they insisted that I stay … I would have to!

“But I would wrestle with myself on who would give the best performance, as that’s what I am, I’m a producer at heart. A producer/artist.”

The star also hinted that he could be collaborating with Usher after the singer revealed the pair had got together.

Pharrell told KISS FM: “I have to leave it up to him and his words, and how he wants to divulge and tell people.

“He has this way of revealing things so I’m going to respectfully stand back. But I will say that he has one of the most masterful voices, underrated, people really don’t understand the depth and the skill that that dude has.

“And how would I know unless we had done something recently, but I don’t know because… How would I know?”

  1. We have already tried too many futile tricks. Retired president kibaki was not a suspect but failed miserably. We willingly and gladly approached ICC, knowing very well that once they took our cases, a reverse would be impossible. Dont we realize when things spiral out of our control?

    1. In Shaa Allah all good things have been decree for the believers Just ask for help as Kenyans. Allah is a Just responsive Lord & Creator, Allah is near to those oppressed, Allah’s powers manifest over all evil in everything! Call upon Allah by his names in all situations? Give thanks for his Swift response to his own. This is a case that is already reverse by the Kenyans even before the ICC accept that facts; all shall learn to Fear Allah as the Allah Akbar.

      1. When Jesus was fasting for Forty days and nights, Satan came to Him am asked Him to worship him. In return the devil was to give Him (Jesus) power over all kingdoms and with their splandour. Do you know which kingdoms the devil refered to? Empty almost unclean faith and reality conflict at best of all times pal!!!!

        1. pal, relax, not even ICC will take you to Statehouse. We know that obsession with ICC is not for victims but to make the road to Statehouse smoother (perhaps).

          1. A referendum on ICC is equal to a referendum to the Supreme Court. Better start here first then engage ICC. ICC is a great for the government to solve land issues and relocate the displaced during the post election violence. So better be grateful to ICC. Otherwise, nothing would be happening.

          2. These guys are wickedly self-centred. They want what benefits two or three people and that would do miracles to to 42million Kenyans. Where were they all this time? I guess, they never thought the day of reckoning will be at hand. Of course, we had contented ourselves in believing that now our “top guys” cant be tried at all. You know during campaigns that was the special line of argument. However, guys didnt have plan B at all. Earlier, I had suggested they should get some local insurance for themselves instead of running. They never listened because they were too narrow. They believed mere election/appointment would nulify ICC cases. Its now time for them to show us the way. What they denied wont happen is actually what they are saying will going to happen now! In real sense, they are now admitting integrity issue was NOT PROPERLY ADDRESSED! My be they resign now??!!!

          3. We are not talking about state house here. But even then thievery, tripple tyrany numbers and misuse of state power can easily take anyone to state house! Two times, we conned other guys. Be sure friend it wont happen a third time. And fictitious so called tyrany numbers wont have taken anybody to state house at all. It was a mere appointment of one’s successor. You expect guys with murderous charges to become anything anywhere on earth? No wonder desperation is certainly becoming overwhelming! The idea of pushing favored boys to the front was meant to circumvent ICC. However, as events have shown and as we strongly said, it failed miserably! You know these issues of about constitutional crisis were discussed at great length in 2011 to polling day. Courts obviously with orders from above, pretended they couldnt do the job. IEBC, Supreme Court and other government agencies took us for a fool. Its about time they showed us the way! Their pretentious blindness is now visiting us with national shame and worse. However, as clearly displayed by your pronouncements, tribalism is becoming our sure way to stagnation! Remember all the things we are now reverting to should have been dealt with two or three years ago. A country anyhow arrested by tribal mischiefs would always rotate in the same spot like sugar in a cup of tea!!!!

        2. Iqar! read the Quran to establish how well Isa (Jesus) answered Satan. Satan was cursed out of paradise has nothing to give any nor can Satan give live to anthing not even an ant. But Satan is well aware of ignorant people who don’t seek refuge in Allah surah 2v 255, 112, 113, 114, Surah 7 vs 11- 25 “Get down o earth will be a dwelling place for you to enjoying but for a time limit only Read again reflect upon why in surah 18v 50 – 51 Satan seek for mankind to submit to himself? He Satan & his helpers destroyed all the revealed books to Moses, David Isa(Jesus) But he can’t destroy the Quran as it is guarded & Mohammed is the last of the prophets until the last day on earth so that people have read & reciting the rope of Allah that is (words) of the Quran, that is alive today until the last day which Satan denys of; Let not Satan deceiver you he is helping you or any he is a plain open enemy to mankind! Read the last & protected revealed books to be guided into the right straight path decree for all mankind. The Quran! Iqar was the first command to Adam to teach all mankind how to repent purify & re-establish pure relationship with our Lord & creator.

          1. Koran is very debatable to those who are not muslims. Christians and known reocrds dont say better things about islam and its origin. Therefore, in order to avoid cruel mix up, address the issue at hand and keep those verses to yourself. Am sure you wont want us to offend each other, do you?

          2. The inviting is open to anyone who is not ignorant or in denial. Sending out an invitation to all to Read the Quran & Reflect upon its wording Read the Quran for yourself don’t follow what other are telling you Iqar! Find about Islam for yourself that is if your are seeking to know the right for wrong as decree by our Lord & Creator. Islam is we read the only one true religion acceptable to Allah decree for all mankind. Seek knowledge, guidance into the right straight path. Why would anyone have the intent to offend others by denial one access to reading the Quran for your self. History can’t be changed or denied. This is a welcome to Islam!

  2. If we can’t even deal with TJRC report after spending billions going all over the country to deal with past crimes committed by the state against the citizens why are we surprised that muthamaki is headed to The Hague. State House Nairobi has been the Vatican of political murder, assassinations, ethnic cleansing, massacres, theft of public resources, massive land grabbing and all sorts of crimes. For 50 years and counting. Let these cases be heard. Why are some people afraid of the truth. Kenya took this case to the ICC. It had nothing to do with the UN.

    1. Stagnation of our great nation was caused by selfish interest. Anyone wishing the country well wont even think of such referendum. And interestingly, when we are fiercely opposed to same referendum being conducted purely for the benefit of 42million Kenyans!!!!

  3. Pro-govt blogger suggesting a referendum when it suits his men’s interests but totally opposed to it when it is about matters of interest to Kenyans e.g. on devolution. Pathetic! Was a pain to read.

  4. Oh, so u unleash tyranny of numbers? We r not fools Mr. Sycophant! Referendum for things that affect us, like tax on basic commodities and more cash for counties and not for cases of 3 men. Have u ever had a referendum for a chicken thief? Be realistic…or get another hobby that is not writing.
