Pharrell ft Justin Timberlake
Brand New (Main)


genre: Hip-Hop
length: 4:28
bpm: 120
key: 9d

March 6, 2014

When you throw together one of the biggest names in pop right now (who’s also fresh off performing his Oscar-nominated uberhit Happy at the Academy Awards, I might add), with one of the most enduringly titanic men of the genre and tell them to make a song together, the results are always going to be interesting. And that’s certainly true of Brand New, the Pharell Williams-Justin Timberlake number from the former’s new album. It sounds like a single within the first few seconds; all brisk, slick beats and the back-and-forth between the two leading men’s distinctive voices. Reminiscent of Jackson 5-ish beats and eminently danceable beat. The two falsettos go for each other over a background of startling horn work and straightforward, single-friendly love song lyrics. A real masterpiece of pop.
