Pharrell and Chad Hugo will reunite full-time as famed production duo The Neptunes in 2020. Producing hits for industry giants from JAY-Z, Britney Spears, Kelis, Justine Timberlake, Clipse, Backstreet Boys, and more, The Neptunes have gained acclaim as one of history’s most successful producer groups and a dominant force in the 90s and early 2000s. Now, in a new interview with Clash, Hugo reveals The Neptunes are back in session with new music to come with artists like Miley Cyrus, JAY-Z, and more.

“I’m focussing on The Neptunes stuff, getting back on The Neptunes grind. We’re doing a couple of things. There’s a video game soundtrack that’s in the works right now that I can’t speak about. I’m not supposed to, but uh, it’s in the works right now. We just did some work with Miley Cyrus, Jay-Z, Blink 182, Lil Uzi Vert, Brandy, Ray-J, Snoh Alegra, G-Eazy…”

The Neptunes were nominated to the 2020 class of Songwriters Hall of Fame last year. Despite never having officially split, Pharrell and Hugo cut back on The Neptunes’ material to focus on their individual work. The two reunited as N.E.R.D in 2017 with the release of fifth studio album No One Ever Really Dies. Other future collaborators that Hugo mentioned include Rex Orange County, Lil Nas X and Kaytranada.

True to his annual tradition, Barack Obama has shared a playlist of his favorite releases of 2019. As in past years, the 44th President of the United States highlights a diverse array of songs spanning a variety of genres. On the hip-hop end, Obama issues a nod to DJ Mustard‘s Migos feature, “Pure Water,” J. Cole‘s “Middle Child,” and DaBaby‘s “Suge,” among other high profile works from the genre, such as Frank Ocean‘s “In My Room.”

A genre-fluid goodie bag of speaker-satiating singles, Obama’s playlist embraces Lil Nas X‘s viral hit, “Old Town Road (Remix),” and additionally features some multilingual flair, courtesy of Ozuna‘s “Baila Baila Baila (Remix),” and the Rollo Tomasi rework of Angélique Kidjo’s “La Vida Es Un Carnaval.” The year-concluding collection also includes productions from Maggie Rogers, Bruce Springsteen, Koffee, Lizzo, and other artists.

Kaytranada drops music video for ‘BUBBA’ track, ‘Puff Lah’Kaytranada Press Photo 2019

Just a week after dropping his sophomore studio album, BUBBA, Kaytranada has released the music video accompaniment for “Puff Lah.” The sixth track on the LP, “Puff Lah” is one of the four purely instrumental songs on BUBBA‘s track list as well as the second shortest track. The highly anticipated 99.9% follow-up album notably sports a hefty portfolio of features including Pharrell WilliamsKali Uchis, Mick Jenkins, TinasheEstelle, Charlotte Day Wilson, Masego, GoldLink, SiR, and more.

“Puff Lah” sports funk-tinged productions and thick bass with an all-so-familiar laidback feel that Kaytranada has been notorious for executing. The conceptually minimalistic visual for “Puff Lah” sees him standing and grooving out in an empty parking garage space. Shot in analog style and color-graded in green hues, the video silhouettes the Montréal producer with the camera occasionally spinning.

Watch the “Puff Lah” video below.
