Pharrell Williams to join The Voice US as coach for season 7
The singer and producer will replace Cee Lo Green
Pharrell Williams has been confirmed to join The Voice US as a new coach, NBC has announced.
The producer and singer will replace long-time coach Cee Lo Green for the singing competition’s seventh series.
Williams, who recently released his new album G I R L, was behind two of last year’s biggest summer tracks, “Get Lucky” and “ Blurred Lines”.
He also wrote both Despicable Me soundtracks, and was nominated for an Oscar for “Happy”, a song from Despicable Me 2.
In a tweet from The Voice US announcing the news (below), it looks like the artist will be keeping his trademark hat when he appears on the show.
Green announced his departure from the hit reality show in February, saying he wanted to spend more time on his musical projects.
“I’m not coming back at all. I just don’t’ want to wear out my welcome there, you know what I’m saying? I have so many other things that I want to do. I haven’t released an album in four years. I’m almost done with my album,” he told The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
