The 'Can't Say No' has received high praise from the Neptunes star who is helping him put together his debut album 'Contrast'.

Conor Maynard has been described as someone who will "change the future of pop music" by Pharrell Williams.

The pair have been recording tracks for the teen star's debut album 'Contrast' out in Miami and the N.E.R.D man told Billboard exactly how far he thinks the singer can go in the industry.

He said: "This kid will change the future of pop music."

The 'Can't Say No' singer recently revealed details on his time with Pharrell to Capital and admitted the producer told rapper Ludacris he had to work with the Brighton singer.

Conor also opened up on the comparisons with himself and Justin Bieber but was quick to point out they have a different style of music.

"To be compared to him when I'm on my first single is a crazy feeling. At the same time, that comparison only goes so far. We're both young and came through YouTube [but] in terms of the music, it's very different," he admitted.

Meanwhile, the star unveiled a new song 'Drowning' last week which is set to feature on his debut album 'Contrast' which is scheduled for release on 30th July.
