Pharrell’s 2014 Is Way Busier Than Yours

Skateboard P. isn't slacking just because he had a very active 2013.

Pharrell Williams had the kind of year that makes the rest of us look like bed-bound losers. He not only has two of this year’s biggest songs — featuring on Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and co-writing Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” — he also has seven Grammy nominations. Oh, and he’s worked with enough people that Kevin Bacon best give up that “6 Degrees of…” throne post haste.

And don’t think for one second that Williams is slowing down just because we’re on to a new kitten calendar — oh to the no: He’s got more collabs lined up for 2014 than Baby North West has blessings.

We’re guessing that we’ve left out a few musical hookups in the list below, but we likely don’t have the pixel-age to capture all of Pharrell’s awesomeness in one post. In the meantime, here’s eight (8!) P-packed projects to look forward to this year:

Pharrell + Major Lazer

Diplo’s Major Lazer project (along with Jillionaire and Walshy Fire) will be dropping an EP NEXT MONTH (February 2014) featuring Skateboard P. himself — along with Sean Paul, RDX, Machel Montano and Elephant Man.

Could this assemblage pen the next dance jam to rival “Get Lucky”? We’ll be up all month waiting and seeing.

Pharrell + T.I.

You may have been waiting with breath that was bated for T.I. to drop Trouble Man II: He Who Wears the Crown — the follow-up to 2012’s Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head — well, you might be waiting a bit longer to exhale. Since getting in the studio with executive producer Pharrell, T.I. has decided to take the record in a new direction — and give it a new name.

“I still have that album, that album isn’t lost, I have that project as well,” T.I. told MTV News. “But the music that we began to create — Pharrell, myself — so many others that have contributed between the time of then and now that the project is just taking a new shape.”

We hope we get to check out that new shape in 2014.

Pharrell + Pusha T
