Watch this and you'll hear literally every Pharrell beat since 2013.
The word “literally” has never been used in a more fitting scenario than this one lol. 2 seconds in, I’m already picking out tracks. So many unreleased beats, instrumentals, and album tracks feature a lot of this “performance”, it’s nuts lol.
Blue magic - 7/10
I like how subtle, lo-fi and understated the song is
Feet to the fire - 7/10
I hated this at first because of the screeching saw synth. But it grew on me a lot
Suspended - 8/10
This song is a masterpiece and one of those tracks that really shows off the Neptunes musicianship. The lyrics blow my mind still because I can’t tell if it’s a song about her dying? Or just tripping? Or sleeping? I don’t know. Since learning it was originally made for bjork it also made me appreciate it more
Run away - 7/10
It’s just a fun song - nothing more to it than that. I like it.
In Lemon you can hear a weird synth kind of like bells, during rihanna’s verse. And it feels like that’s bleed through from her headphones because it’s soooo quiet it surely can’t be part of the final song?
Still remember when this album leaked... Soph year in college, I burned the CD and put in my stereo & programmed it to loudly play "Young, Fresh N' New" as my alarm for important early morning classes, football practices etc... I'd be out of bed so fast to turn it off! Still love the song/album/Kelis despite it scaring me out of bed so many times.
