HypeBeast recently had the chance to talk with Pharrell Williams, who has been working with Miley on her new music.
Forever the renaissance man, Pharrell Williams has been in the news lately for both his music, his clothing and even his home. He’s been busy this year in the studio with Miley Cyrus and Tyler, the Creator to name a few. Check out the interview below to hear Pharrell talk about working in the studio with Miley Cyrus.
You’ve worked with a lot of different artists in the studio, what is it like working with artist from different genres – for example Tyler, the Creator and Miley Cyrus?
What we all have in common is that we like new stuff, we like making music that doesn’t exist. That’s what Tyler has in common with me and what I have in common with Miley. Put it this way, he heard her music and next thing you know he’s in the picture with her. That’s not what you would expect, but that’s what I love doing: totally surprising people.
Regarding the Miley Cyrus album, how did you approach this? Was it you guiding it or was it a shared collaborative effort?
She is an old soul that was trapped in a younger situation who just bursted at the scenes and I was just happy to be there during that transformation.
So it must have been easy and fun working with her?
Yeah for sure, I remember when they use to ask me about the same questions with Justin (Timberlake); people be like why you going in with *NSYNC? Because there’s somebody in there that you don’t know.
