Pharrell Williams to Collaborate With One Direction

Pharrell Williams

Is there anything Pharrell Williams hasn’t done? The singer, rapper, producer, and fashion designer already rocks a guest spot on two of the year’s most popular singles (Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines“), and now it seems One Direction will get lucky as well.

In a conversation with The Mirror, he said he and the group are “definitely talking.” It seems odd for the 40-year-old to have his eyes set on the English boy band for his next collaboration, but it turns out he’s a fan of their sound. “From what I’ve heard of their new stuff, I’m pleasantly surprised. Their new stuff is definitely a progression and an elevation. I will hopefully be getting involved as we are definitely in talks.”

Williams also recently spoke highly of the group at the GQ Awards. “[One Direction] are a brand and are huge. They are incredibly hard-working,” he said. “I don’t think some people realize how hard those boys work. There is so much more that goes into One Direction than just the band.”

With what I’m sure was a smirk, he made sure to add what seems obvious: “I’m sure it will excite our female fans if we’re on a record together.” If there’s one thing the collaboration would do, it’s most definitely that.
