The first single from B.O.A.T.S. II is “Feds Watching,” which Pharrell produced. “He had a room full of all his folks and they were all in the zone,” Pharrell told MTV News, explaining the recording atmosphere he walked into. “I [was] absorbing the air and the vibe, the tone, the pacing because everybody there was pretty much on a similar page. Immediately I started working on what that [vibe] felt like to me and that there’s where the loop of the beat [came from].
“It’s that ’80s ska, reggae, glass-of-wine type of feel. I just put the drums up under it and it just happened that way,” he said of the end result.
