Black Coffee Is Working With Pharrell, Cassie and Diplo

We can't wait to hear these songs.

South African DJ and producer extraordinaire Black Coffee continues to break boundaries. One of his dream collaborations, which is Pharrell Williams, is finally happening.


The DJ and producer told Complex in an interview:

"We're working on a song already; we spent some time in the studio. I'm also helping... David Guetta's doing his album. I'm from the dance world, but I consider myself a producer."

Last year November, Coffee posted a video of him with Pharrell in studio.

In the interview with Complex, Coffee also mentioned more names he's working with:

"I think I almost got trapped into one world of being a dance music producer when I've always known I can do more," he says. "Now I'm starting to really do stuff... I'm working on a song with Yuna, working on a song with Cassie, for their projects. I'm doing something with Diplo. That's the world I want to be in. I'm doing songs; they don't have to be in the club."

Black Coffee has been pushing the boundaries for sometime now. From being the first African-based artist to have his own Beats 1 show, to working with Drake on More Life, scoring a residency in Ibiza, playing at Coachella, among other major moves, there's just no stopping the man.
