Pharrell Talks Music, ‘Duck Dynasty’ With Francesco Yates

Pharrell Williams knows talent when he sees it! The “Happy” singer has lent his immense experience to 18-year-old singer-songwriter Francesco Yates for his upcoming debut album, and in an exclusive video we get to see the two talk in the studio about music, eating cereal at 2 a.m. … and Duck Dynasty?

“There’s like this unique trademark, if you will, level of humility like you’ve never seen before,” Pharrell says about Francesco. “And so I started to see, ‘Oh wow, this kid has spent most of his time doing this.’ That’s when you know you’re dealing with something special and different.”

Even Justin Timberlake is a fan! He recently tweeted about how much he loves Francesco’s song, “Call.”
