Full album is set to drop later this month
Pharrell Williams has teamed up with Rae Sremmurd on new song ‘Chanel’.
The new track is taken from Rae Sremmurd’s forthcoming triple album ‘SR3MM’.
The project is split into three parts: a self-titled Rae Sremmurd album, a Slim Jxmmi solo album (‘Jxmtro’) and a Swae Lee solo album (‘Swaecation’). You can listen to the track below.
‘Chanel’ is the second offering from Jxmtro, following ‘Brxnks Truck’. The duo have also previously shared Rae Sremmurd’s ‘T’d Up’ and ‘Powerglide’, as well as Swaecation’s ‘Hurt To Look’.
Producer Mike WiLL Made-It recently said that ‘SR3MM’ consists of 27 tracks and is scheduled for an April release. He also revealed that it features contributions from Future, Young Thug, Travis Scott, Zoë Kravitz and more.
Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams recently failed in their appeal against the ‘Blurred Lines’ copyright infringement ruling.
In 2015, a federal jury ruled that Thicke and Williams’ hit song with T.I. shared similarities to Marvin Gaye‘s 1977 song ‘Got To Give It Up’ and that Thicke and Williams, but not T.I., must pay half of the song’s royalties and $5.3m (£4m) in damages to Gaye’s family.
After the U.S. District Court denied a retrial, Thicke and Williams later appealed the verdict in 2016, claiming that there had been a “cascade of legal errors” leading to the original decision. Over 200 musicians including Weezer and Black Crowes members backed their appeal.
But the 9th Circuit Court Of Appeals largely upheld the original verdict, but cleared T.I. and the labels UMG, Interscope, and Star Trak Entertainment of being liable. The District Court had later implicated the parties after the original jury found them not liable.
