Conor Maynard Wants To Prove Pharrell Williams Right About Being The "Future Of Pop"
The 'Vegas Girl' star says he wants to make sure Pharrell's belief in him as an artist was justified.
The 'Can't Say No' singer launched his debut album 'Contrast' in the UK this week, and recalls getting to meet some of the biggest names in the industry, back when he started working with Pharrell on the record earlier this year.
"It's been crazy. I had to get very used to meeting my idols very quickly," Conor revealed to MTV News this week. "I got to work with some incredible people. There's some amazing, amazing names I'm honoured to have on this album and I had to get used to meeting these people before I even released a track.
"I had to control myself, not want to run in there and lick their face!" Conor joked. "I had to contra that. I had to be normal at the same time.
"It was exciting and it made me very, very driven to want to prove myself to them," he added. "Pharrell kind of sits me down and says, 'I think you're the future of pop music.' And I'm like 'OK'. For me, it made me want to prove that."
