We appreciate a good collab here at TSIS, but there’s no preparing for one this massive. In congruence with his Time Magazine cover story, music industry giant Pharrell Williams is releasing a new collab with JAY-Z titled, “Entrepreneur.” It drops everywhere tomorrow, August 21. This also marks JAY-Z’s first official release in five years.
In an interview with TIME, Pharrell talks about the inspiration behind the new single,
How tough it is to be an entrepreneur in our country to begin with. Especially as someone of color, there’s a lot of systemic disadvantages and purposeful blockages. How can you get a fire started, or even the hope of an ember to start a fire, when you’re starting at disadvantages with regards to health care, education, and representation?
When two of music’s most accomplished heavy weights team up, you know its gonna be good. “Entrepreneur” releases on streaming platforms tomorrow.
