Los Angeles, June 24 (IANS) Singer Pharrell Williams has praised “Hometown glory” hitmaker Adele, calling her a “masterful writer”.
“She (Adele) is a masterful writer. You listen to her albums and the intention is living and breathes,” Williams told Ryan Seacrest at Cannes Lions advertising festival on Tuesday, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The 42-year-old had dreamt of working with Adele and previously said: “I have been excited about her since I first heard ‘Rolling in the deep’. If the opportunity comes up in 2015 for us to work together, then I am totally down with that.”
However, collaborating with other artists hasn’t always been easy for Williams, the award winning musician and producer.
He added: “We’ve had to do a lot of fighting and convincing people, whether it’s a label or the management. You’re exhausted (after it), but you’ve aligned the stars.”
“If the management isn’t into it, it might not work, if the radio isn’t into it, it might not work, if the label isn’t into it, it might not work. You don’t always need a label today.”
