“He’s absolutely gonna be just a huge, huge, huge pop star,” Pharrell states about Yates. “But not in the way people have been thinking of pop music in the past ten years,” .
The two entertainers having an extended working relationship. Yates played guitar on “Gust of Wind” off Pharrell’s G I R L album. He also plays piano, bass, drums, and harmonica. Previous Yates singles include “Better To Be Good” and “Call”.
“Nobody Like You” was created for the year-long Coke Bottle 100 campaign. The soft drink corporation is celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the Coca-Cola bottle.
