Pharrell and JAY-Z join forces for “Entrepreneur”

Pharrell and JAY-Z want us to root for ourselves

August 19 was the 17th anniversary of The Neptunes’ Clones album, the album that featured “Frontin‘” featuring JAY-Z. It’s a quick feature from JAY, but, it gets the job done, from start to finish. The two are known to have a dynamic unlike any other when it comes to making music together, and they show it off again, on “Entrepreneur.”

“The intention for a song was all about how tough it is to be an entrepreneur in our country to begin with,” Williams told Time. “Especially as someone of color, there’s a lot of systemic disadvantages and purposeful blockages. How can you get a fire started, or even the hope of an ember to start a fire, when you’re starting at disadvantages with regards to health care, education, and representation?”

The song lines up with Pharrell’s TIME magazine cover package, “The New American Revolution.”
