Pharrell is signed to somebody too! Chad’s been going independent for the last few years (though he did briefly sign to Fools Gold). I’m glad he’s getting more business focussed now. And I know there’s a reason why he isn’t signing with P, because they only just terminated something else. So I guess it’s for security to have his own separate deal, management and team.
They actually have always been signed to different publishers too. Since the very beginning.
