Pharrell Tells Epic Story Of His First Meeting With Michael Jackson

Pharrell Tells Epic Story Of His First Meeting With Michael Jackson

Pharrell and Scott Vener (who curated the music for a lot of your favorite HBO Shows) have a show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio called OTHERtone, which you should really get into the habit of listening to. The two bring in artists and celebrities and just geek out over music for an hour. For a show back in July, they brought on Justin Timberlake and Cara Delevigne to geek out about Alabama Shakes, and this time around they brought on Tyler, The Creator. While listening to Pharrell and Tyler get giddy over a record that Kanye West produced for Janet Jackson (that I’d forgotten was really, really good) was great, the best parts of the show were the stories Pharrell told about meeting Michael Jackson for the first time and chilling with him in the studio. It was like a movie.

Watch R.Kelly’s Perfect Michael Jackson Impression

Watch R.Kelly’s Perfect Michael Jackson Impression

R. Kelly gushed over his experience working with legendary singer and king of pop, Michael Jackson during his listening lounge interview with WBLS and Hot 97, Wednesday night (July 15).

Kelly, who was the producer responsible for Michael’s 1995 hit song, “You Are Not Alone,” reminisced about the very moment he met the international sensation.

“Michael Jackson to me was my Mickey Mouse. Like this is not real. He is not real,” he said excitedly. “To actual grow up and become who I became as a producer and to be producing and writing for Michael, when I first met him it was crazy because he still was a cartoon to me.”

The 12 Play star said that he was in complete disbelief when he arrived to Chicago and without the help of social media, fans were aware of his landing by simply word-of-mouth, “It all became real when they landed in Chicago and I don’t know how Mike do this, but when Mike pulled up to the studio, across the street was the hotel and across the street, everybody in the window were hanging out like they knew he was coming,” he said.

The three-time Grammy award winner explained that he was extremely nervous to work with him and even mentioned offering him Chinese food to simply break the ice. After going to the bathroom for his personal freak out moment, R.Kelly said he gathered himself and started recording “You Are Not Alone” with the former Jackson Five star.

“‘This track is going to be something that the world is going to sing this forever,’ and I’m like ‘Yea, Mike, I appreciate it and I’m glad you like it.'” He continued, “So when he went into the studio to do his thing, he talked to his doc, the doctor told him how to get into his vocals and then he asked me to come in and sing background with him and I’m telling you what went to my feet.”
