Pharrell Williams is a busy man. If you don’t believe me check out this GQ Profile from February that covers about 13 hours of his day.
The thing is though, he spends all his time creating or thinking about being creative. For that I’m jealous, but also thankful, because the man is a hit machine and deserves his own playlist: Because Pharrell.
This playlist is (generally) in reverse chronological order featuring select tracks from Pharrell’s albums and songs he’s has had a hand in producing. I’m sure we’re all good on “Blurred Lines”, “Happy”, and “Get Lucky” for now so those aren’t there. But the man deserves praise for his creative consistency and longevity going all the way back to “I Just Wanna Love U” on Jay Z’s The Dynasty and “Pass the Courvoisier Part II” with Busta Rhymes and P. Diddy. Also, shouts to Clipse.
If I’ve learned anything putting this playlist together it’s that Pharrell is liable to pop up in production credits just about anywhere. Most recently he’s credited on “Alright” from Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly, and is handling the bulk of production on Snoop Dogg’s upcoming album Bush; the first single being “Peaches N Cream” released earlier this month. So follow the playlist to stay updated.
