Pharrell covers Notion - pictures / quotes
ON SALE MAY 15TH
On being thankful to fans for their support: “It’s nice to be number 1 but that’s not my doing. You can get so much more done by giving people respect. The people did this. Everything that I own my fans paid for.”
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.”
