Amongst his many ventures and positions, Pharrell Williams also has an online interview series titled ‘Artist TLK’ (standing for Talk), in which he himself interviews other prolific artists.
For his latest episode, the Neptunes hitmaker sits down with none other than Usher Raymond. During their intimate chat, the two friends exchange an honest convo about Usher’s beginnings in the church, meeting L.A. Reid and Diddy, the audition and first song he sang for L.A. (Boyz II Men’s “End Of The Road”), the importance of keeping R&B ballads alive, mentoring Justin Bieber, if he regrets doing something as an artist, his secret of success and much more.
Then Pharrell introduces his protégée, Leah LaBelle, and they discuss the intuition that artists and producers must have to make great music. When you have some free time, check out the must-have interview below:
