Earlier this year, Hugo revealed that he and Pharrell had been in the studio with a handful of artists including The Weeknd, Lil Nas X and others.
“We’re doing a couple of things,” Hugo said in an interview with Clash. “There’s a videogame soundtrack that’s in the works right now that I can’t speak about, I’m not supposed to, but uh, it’s in the works right now. We just did some work with Miley Cyrus, Jay-Z, Blink 182, Lil Uzi Vert, Brandy, Ray-J, Snoh Alegra, G-Eazy…”
In that same interview, Hugo also revealed that Pharrell is working on a new record, and described it as “real island-like and different.”
