MTV was able to catch up with N.E.R.D. and hear Pharrell’s thoughts on Pusha T signing with Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music label.

“I think that’s gonna be amazing,” Pharrell said. “[Pusha] had been working with ‘Ye. I told him, ‘You should do that.’ We made a lot of great records together, and we’ll continue to make great records. I want him to grow and get other experiences out in the world. He’s gotta figure that out. He’s gotta go out there and see it. Make no mistake, lyrically, that kid is one of the greats — him and his brother. Lyrically, those guys are really serious. They’re well-respected by all of the good dudes. Jay-Z loves them, T.I., Jeezy loves them. All of your favorite rappers, they appreciate a Pusha line or a Malice line. They do. I’m saying with respect for all those artists — I work with those artists. I know the conversations we had. They like what they do. It’s been a long time coming for Pusha and what it is he’s trying to do. He’s gonna get it. And Malice too.” – MTV

Sidebar: Clipse and Kanye West & Co. would be instantly classic.

Hit the break to see N.E.R.D. speak on their single, “Nothing”, as well as Malice’s opinion on Pusha T signing with G.O.O.D. Music.

Here comes the official music video from Swedish House Mafia and Pharrell. The song, “One (Your Name)”, is a summer banger for myself, so I had to share the visuals.

“We had one phrase that we had from Pharrell and we made it into a whole song,” explains Axwell, with Angello adding that “it’s kind of old skool, chopping up one vocal and turning it into a whole dance track.” The video for One, which you can watch above, is noteworthy for its prominent use of Teenage Engineering’s forthcoming OP-1, which should raise the profile of this synth/sampler/controller – not to mention the anticipation level ahead of its release – considerably.
