While “Drunk In Love” was the obvious smash from Beyonce‘s self-titled album, the project was full of successful hits. So while it was obvious a remix to her collaboration with Jay-Z would be included on the project’s rerelease, tracks like “Blow” also got a facelift.
One of three tracks from the original Beyonce to be revisited on the Platinum Edition, the “Blow (Remix)” switches thing up by bringing one of the main men behind the scenes on the original to the forefront. After earning both writing and producing credits the first time around, Pharrell has stepped out from behind the boards to join Bey for a brand new verse for this welcomed remix.

They teamed up on “Get Lucky” and stormed the Grammys. Now the powerhouse pair of Pharrell and Daft Punk are back again but on Skateboard P’s album for its fourth single, “Gust of Wind”.
While the combination of string-laden production and a techno chorus would scare many artists, it feels just right for Pharrell and Daft Punk on “Gust of Wind”. While there are other tracks on G I R L which screamed single material more than “Gust of Wind”, who can blame Pharrell for riding high on this collabo.

After getting things started with his subtly dirty single “Good Kisser”, Usher is back for more and he is keeping up the energy. His new album may not have a title yet but with tracks like “She Came To Give It To You” it will still have huge amounts of hype.
With production from the Grammy award winning producer of the year, Pharrell, and tight verse from the YMCMB queen, Nicki Minaj, “She Came To Give It To You” has some serious muscle even without Usher. But it is Ush who continues to mold and adapt his sound who carries his new single to the potential summer smash category.

From working on some of the biggest albums of the year, dropping his first solo project in eight years, and having having a huge hit with “Happy”, Pharrell is having quite the year. Now even his old music is getting the remix treatment as Disclosure takes on the “Frontin (Remix)”.
The first solo single ever released by Pharrell and featuring Jay-Z, “Frontin” never made an official album after being released in 2002 but Disclosure was obviously still feeling the track’s vibe. For this UK duo, the “Frontin (Remix)” should open some more door for them as this track will surely connect them to a bigger hip-hop audience.

To say that Pharrell has been in an extremely good mood would be quite the understatement. He singlehandedly made the world “Happy” with his mega-single from G I R L so it is only fitting that he is going to “Smile” from ear to ear.
A newly released bonus track from Pharrell’s highly acclaimed album, “Smile” continues the joyous trend in Skateboard P’s music. With more high energy production along with Pharrell’s simple, catchy lyrics, “Smile” will keep the good vibes flowing.

The diversity of Pharrell in production and on his own tracks has been evident since the beginning of his historic career. However, now more than ever, Skateboard P has been showing that he can succeed in a plethora of genres and he continues to do so on his most recent release, “Here”.
Off The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack which he is helping produce, “Here” may even be a step out of Pharrell’s huge comfort zone. A power ballad showing off P’s vocal range, which may be his most questioned musical feature, “Here” will have his huge following wondering if this type of track is yet another success for Pharrell.

He might be engaged to Ciara now but Future does not seem to be slowing his grind. He will not stop hustling, he won’t stop pursuing stardom, and he will continue to “Move That Dope”.
The latest single from his upcoming album Honest, “Move That Dope” continues Future’s trend of telling it like it is. Notable former drug dealer turned G.O.O.D. Music MC, Pusha T joins Future on the track who also brings in Pharrell for a verse unlike anything he offered up on G I R L.
