Pharrell, Spike Lee Team Up For Live Concert

Pharrell Williams and Spike Lee are joining up for a live-streamed concert Saturday night in the latest American Express “Unstaged” hook-up.

Lee is directing Pharrell’s concert, which New Yorkers can catch at Harlem’s famous Apollo Theater.

Other Amex performance pairings have included Kings of Leon and Fred Armisen; Vampire Weekend and Steve Buscemi; and The Killers and Werner Herzog.

The “Happy” singer and the Do The Right Thing director got together for a pre-show conversation that you can catch above. The ego stroking is sufficiently heartwarming.

“I’m sitting here with Spike Lee,” Pharrell says in the clip. “Nah, nah, nah,” says Lee. “I’m sitting here with Pharrell. It’s the other way around!”
