Lil Uzi Vert Making Song for Pikachu Movie With Pharrell
Lil Uzi Vert and Pharrell are coming together once again.
According to Japanese music website Real Sound, the pair will have a collab on the upcoming Pokémon: Detective Pikachu soundtrack. "Electricity" which is an Honest Boyz song featuring Uzi and produced by Pharrell will live at the end of the film.
Uzi previously worked with Pharrell on "Neon Guts," which is a cut off Uzi's 2017 album, Luv Is Rage 2. The project is the last full studio album released by Uzi, and he's been very vocal about the struggles with his label preventing him from releasing a follow-up since then. Recently, however, the Atlantic Records/Generation Now signee released two new tracks.
"Sanguine Paradise" and "That's a Rack" dropped last week, and both tracks will likely live on Uzi's long-awaited Eternal Atake album. The tracks were co-signed by Generation Now co-founder DJ Drama, so hopefully this means that the label issues have calmed down a bit and Uzi will be able to release the project.
No word on whether Uzi's apparent signing to Roc Nation for management helped calm the beef between Uzi and Drama—as we've seen Hov be quite the help to younger artists behind-the-scenes as of late.
Pokémon: Detective Pikachu hits theaters on May 10, though the song will likely be released before then.
