Yeah but that's only part of the story because what JT doesn't see is Chad making the song in the first place before P starts humming melodies. For example "nothing else" is Chad solo with a couple of added P touches.
But in the justified documentary all you see is P humming some words to it and playing the latrelle version, and then ordering chad to add a bridge (probably the story JT is referring to).
Chad stepped back from The Neptunes because he was spending too much time in the studio, until 6am sometimes, working on tracks for people he'd never even met. Do people really think he's putting in all those hours if the only thing he does is add bridges?
Nah I'm tired of people altering history and diminishing Chad's impact in the golden era 😭😭😭😭 I'm also tired and grouchy
Or how about the fact that he can do all of the conscious, or love stuff but also have songs where he goes ignorant P? I like artists that can do both, if I'm not having fun somewhere on an album, I don't really like it. It feels like a chore to listen to. Part of the reason that I'm 50/50 about Kendrick
I understand that you didnt like the album and I can see how it is a letdown, it feels very weak compared to Justin's best albums. But I still enjoy it cus of songs like wave, breeze off the pond, higher, montana etc. And then there are shitty songs on there.
But i think you got it wrong how you think we sit and try to analyze the music we listen to, as if colorful chords is somehow related to having a snobbish musical taste. I get goosebumps and feel happy when i listen to some music and usually that music has "beautiful chords" in it. Its all feeling its not an analyzed TING.
AND by the way, some of the best neps beats to me like I Know and Im Beamin have delicious chords =)
but yeah this ablum sucked. the marketingnfor something can only work if what youre selling is good. other than the 9/10 WAVE i never listen to it. but take me out of it, no one liked this album. and by no one i mean the general public, my friend group and JT fans i know. it just wasnt a fire project
also playahater is so articulate that's a great quality to have.
In my opinion, when it comes to popular appeal for Pharrell - it's all about "Safeness". Pharrell is "safe". He doesn't have too many extreme opinions. Doesn't wild out. He's old, he has a family. He tries to be a feminist. He does nothing but praise people. He's a mild mannered, safe, cool, black dude, and parents of kids approve.
In short: Women like him because he's handsome and youthful. Guys like him because he's cool. Parents like him because he's safe. Kids like him because he made Happy, and dresses like a kid.
I totally agree. That's what I meant when I posted the topic. Sort of a perfect storm of kid and female appeal. And of course when women like something, guys tend to not be far behind.
Yeah I saw. I'm still not even sure I trust drew to pay attention to lyrics though lol. Gonna ask Kenna instead, because Siren has the "here she comes" lyrics a zillion times. + Kenna credited on the tape.
