Discussing with GQ about Scott, Nolan said “His insights into the musical and narrative mechanism Ludwig Göransson and I were building were immediate, insightful, and profound.”

Pharrell and JAY-Z announced that they’re releasing a new song, “Entrepreneur,” tomorrow (August 21). The song is part of Pharrell’s TIME cover package, titled “The New American Revolution.”
In an interview with TIME Pharrell said the song stems from “how tough it is to be an entrepreneur in our country to begin with. Especially as someone of color, there’s a lot of systemic disadvantages and purposeful blockages. How can you get a fire started, or even the hope of an ember to start a fire, when you’re starting at disadvantages with regards to health care, education, and representation?”
