Pharrell Williams has come a long way since his days with The Neptunes and N.E.R.D., his solo career highlighted by collaborations with Daft Punk and Nile Rodgers, global hits like “Happy”, and production for Beyoncé and Frank Ocean. Still, he hasn’t forgotten roots, as evidenced by his latest Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music.

During the episode, he dusted off an unreleased N.E.R.D track entitled “Locked Away”. Like much of his own music today, it’s a fusion of pop, funk, and rock. Listen in here.

In addition to the song, the “Freedom” singer invited Tyler, the Creator as a special guest on his radio show. The two talked about the times Pharrell met Michael Jackson, and Tyler even dropped a few of his favorite Jay Z bars. The whole episode can be heard here; below are a few choice excerpts from their conversation.
