Cop a gander of Pharrell Williams.
The ‘Happy’ hitmaker styles and profiles on the cover of Notion magazine’s latest issue.
Looking oh so suave, the Neptunes star reflects on his gargantuan success, female empowerment, new album ‘G I R L’, and more within the publication’s pages.
Peep excerpts below…
On defining the genre of his music: “Really there’s no formula, there’s just feeling.”
On understanding the rise of the download: “The kids download music because possession is not the new idea of wealth.”
On producing his own music: “I used to always over think it because I’m trying to produce myself. I’m having to draw from myself, which is so weird, so I’d always overshoot.”
On his new album G I R L: “What’s made me feel comfortable about making an album is because it’s not about me. It’s about girl. I feel comfortable singing it and making it and performing it.”
On female empowerment: “There’s not enough gravitas placed on the role of women in society.”
On quantifying the success of a song: “It’s the way it feels to me and I stay loyal to that. I’m happy that the people can see that I’m staying loyal to that because they don’t have to support me, but they do.”
