Pharrell

The biggest names in music come together for one epic video. To celebrate the launch of BBC Music, Pharrell, Stevie Wonder, Sam Smith, Lorde, Emeli Sandé, and more have remade the Beach Boys 1966 classic “God Only Knows.”

Pharrell looks dapper in a tuxedo, Lorde rocks angel wings, Elton John wears a suit covered in butterflies, and Kylie Minogue floats in a bubble.

The whimsical visuals also feature appearances from Coldplay’s Chris Martin, One Direction, Queen’s Brian May, Florence Welch, and Brian Wilson himself.

“All of the artists did such a beautiful job I can’t thank them enough,” said the Beach Boys frontman. “I’m just honored that ‘God Only Knows’ was chosen. ‘God Only Knows’ is a very special song. An extremely spiritual song and one of the best I’ve ever written.”

Pharrell Williams

Pharrell Williams reunites with Daft Punk in the video for “Gust of Wind.” In the vibrant visuals, directed by filmmaker Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim Versus the World), “The Voice” coach strolls through a fall-covered forrest where he comes across two giant boulders in the shape of the Robots’ helmets. The Baes dance alongside Pharrell and the autumn leaves before the boulders light up and ascend into the sky.

“Gust of Wind” marks the fifth music video to be released from Pharrell’s second album G I R L following “Happy,” “Marilyn Monroe,” “Come Get It Bae,” and “It Girl.”

Pharrell is currently on his European tour and has been in the studio with fellow “Voice” coach Gwen Stefani for her upcoming solo album.

New Music: T.I. f/ Pharrell – ‘Paperwork’

'Paperwork'

T.I. shares his tale of hustling on the title track off his upcoming album Paperwork. The Grand Hustle chief reminisces about learning the ropes from his Uncle Quentin and dealing drugs at age 17, while Pharrell provides the soulful hook and production.

“[It] pretty much kinda sums up the tone of the album,” Tip told MTV News of the track. “The cinematic presentation of it all. When you listen to the album, top to bottom, it kinda sounds like the score to a movie and I think ‘Paperwork’ is the perfect introduction to that.”

Paperwork drops October 21 featuring Usher, Chris Brown, Jeezy, Boosie, The-Dream, Rick Ross, and Pharrell, who also serves as the album’s executive producer.
