Pharrell called up The Angie Martinez Show on Hot 97 live from L.A. to talk about his Oscars performance, achieving success, writing up a slew of songs before creating “Happy.” Skateboard P discussed it took him 9 tries to finally get the song right. How were the songs that didn’t make the cut? P says “some of them are kind of good, too.”

Skateboard P noted that Keys’ next album is “crazy” and “next level,” something “New York will be very proud of.” Listen to the entire conversation below.
