The NBA 2K15 Soundtrack By, Pharrell Williams
As if 2014 hasn’t already been claimed as the “Year of Pharrell Williams,” now would be the time to do so.
The producer not only won a ton of Grammys, was nominated for an Oscar (he performed at the ceremony), dropped an album and took on a lot of amazing fashion projects, he has been selected to curate the soundtrack of the NBA 2K15 video game.
The video game is set to be released on October 7 and although the soundtrack is a secret, Williams did slip up regarding System of a Down making the cut. He also noted that since women play video games too, he kept their perspective in mind by including men and women on his team during the brainstorm process.
“There are girls that play the game and there’s a lot of girls that are around it … so I thought it’d be such an interesting twist to have the girls weigh in on the song list, because they listen to it just as much. I tried to pick an alternative approach, because how do you follow up LeBron and Jay? I gotta take a different route. When we finished looking at the list, it felt right.”
