“I’m focusing on The Neptunes stuff, getting back on The Neptunes grind,” Chad says. “We’re doing a couple of things. There’s a video game soundtrack that’s in the works right now that I can’t speak about… We just did some work with Miley Cyrus, Jay-Z, Blink 182, Lil Uzi Vert, Brandy, Ray-J, Snoh Alegra, G-Eazy…”
The Neptunes’ last outside collab was with Justin Timberlake for his 2018 album, “Man in the Woods.” The production duo is best known for being the brains behind a number of early aughts’ platinum hits, with collaborations ranging from Beyoncé to The Rolling Stones.
