Pharrell Williams has another cushy job on his extensive resume. The producer, artist, designer and anything else he feels like being on any given day has been named the created director of the American Express Platinum Card. 

The announcement was made Thursday morning (Dec. 15), and will find Pharrell doing what Pharrell does for the brand.

Reports WWD:

American Express revealed the news this morning, saying that as creative director Williams would bring “his creative vision and style to inspire and guide the global experiences, access and services that the Platinum Card is renowned for providing.” The partnership includes Williams’ guidance on experiences and events and to inspire new cutting-edge collaborations and partnerships that meet the needs of the ever-changing premium consumer lifestyle.

“I’m excited to be partnering with such a globally respected brand as American Express to inspire new innovative and creative premium experiences and work together to enhance the future of the Platinum Card,”  said Williams, in a statement.

“We want the Platinum Card and the experiences it offers to be influenced and shaped by our card members, so we’re thrilled to be working with long-time card member and creative visionary Pharrell to lead some of these efforts,” said Janey Whiteside, senior vice president of Global Charge Products, Benefits and Services at American Express in a statement. “Like many of our card members, he’s traveled the globe, he has an amazing imagination and he loves to discover and share new experiences.” 

Clipse and Re-Up Gang fans (think: “Black Card era”) will no doubt be feeling a ways that Pharrell didn’t become the creative director of the invite-only American Express Black Card.

But hey, you can’t have it all.
