Continuing with the Artist Talk series, Pharrell sits down with Usher Raymond in the latest episode. Starting from the beginning, the two talk about Usher’s start in church and moving onto talent shows, how moving to Atlanta and doing Star Search led to meeting L.A. Reid and being signed on the spot, working with Diddy and his “flavor camp” in NY, keeping R&B music alive, how he has been serving as a mentor to Justin Bieber, and Pharrell introduces his artist Leah LaBell and the three discuss what artists and producers must do to connect and make great records.
