Pharrell Set To Produce 'NBA 2K15' Soundtrack
Pharrell has been charged with the duty of scoring the soundtrack to the perennial king of basketball video kings, none other than NBA 2K15. A series that has seen the likes of Jay Z and Lebron James take those reigns in the last two installments will finally get the GIRL touch. Pharrell tells Billboard :
“I had some people from my staff — they were all girls and women — and we just talked about it. I was like, ‘I have to do this, [but] I don’t know if I’m gonna be able to pull this off, because Jay did it and LeBron.’ I’m like, man, how do I follow up those guys? They know so much more about the sport than I do.”
While P may not be the league’s star player or a partial owner of a franchise, he is inarguably one of the most influential figures in contemporary music. Period. And it’ll certainly be interesting to see what the mad-hatter has up his sleeve for the latest episode of the hit video game series. Keep it locked, we’ll have plenty more on the new Skateboard P curated soundtrack. If you’ve still got the itch for more, pick up a copy of GIRL today via iTunes.
