Timbo’s Crazy Tracks
Pharrell Williams recently finished some songs for Madonna’s upcoming album, Hard Candy, an assignment that put his material head-to-head with another Virginia Beach native who has reached the innermost circle of pop importance: Timbaland.
If Williams seemed less than enamored of the spotlight during his solo career, he clearly relishes the chance to compete with his old friend (prefame, he and Timba were briefly in a band together) and perceived rival.
“His tracks [for Hard Candy] are crazy,” Williams says with a laugh. “I couldn’t fuck around. I had to come with it.”
