Pharrell Williams released a new song titled ‘Letter To My Godfather‘ which he recorded for the new Netflix documentary The Black Godfather.
The doc, led by director Reginald Hudlin, will focus on the legendary entertainment trailblazer Clarence Avant and premiered on Netflix on June 7th.
Pharell’s new song closely follows the theme of the documentary – which includes interviews from a slew of notable names which includes Barack Obama, Lionel Richie, Snoop Dogg, Diddy and many more.
Pharell mixes things up on the track by using a good amount of auto-tune. A leisurely upbeat, but contemplative, song written to pay ode to The Godfather. Pharrell employs his Neptune partner Chad Hugo on production and lyrics.
I’m sorry if this is a bore
But I wasn’t seen in here before
So I toast him tonight
When your trajectory was off
And couldn’t find true north, just lost
He would say, “Protect him, at all cost”
They would hang up the calls
