ATLANTA – Pharrell is teaming up with the world's best-selling basketball video game franchise as a music curator.
2K Sports announced Tuesday that the Grammy-winning performer will choose 27 tracks for the soundtrack of the upcoming "NBA 2K15." He's the second music performer to select songs for the video game, following Jay Z who served as executive producer in 2012.
LeBron James picked out songs for last year's installment that sold 7 million copies.
Pharrell said in a statement to The Associated Press that he wanted to create an "eclectic mix" of songs. The soundtrack features three of his songs along with songs from Lauryn Hill, One Republic, Snoop Dogg, Lorde, A Tribe Called Quest and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The game is expected to go on sale Oct. 7.
