Pharrell has been interested in music since a very early age. While still in middle school, he met Chad Hugo, who is now also a famous producer and Pharrell’s bandmate. In 1990 together with Mike Etheridge and Shay Haley, he formed a band called the Neptunes. They were noticed by the producer Teddy Riley during a talent show which led to them signing a contract just after graduating from high school. From this point, Pharrell’s career took off as a producer, not only a musician. The Neptunes became a production company in 1994, and by 2001they were beginning to gain recognition worldwide most of which was because of American singer/songwriter Kelis’ album “Kaleidoscope” which she produced by collaborating with the Neptunes in 1999. Their first number one worldwide was a single which they produced for Britney Spears entitled “I’m a Slave 4 U”.

Pharrell, together with Hayley Williams and Hugo formed an American rock, hip hop and funk band called “N.E.R.D” (No-one Ever Really Dies), which released their debut album “In Search of…” in 2001, then re-released it in 2002.

During his subsequent career, Pharrell has worked with many popular music performers including Daft Punk, Shakira, Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Adam Lambert and others which has obviously contributed to his net worth. In 2004 Pharrell won his first Grammy award as “Producer of the Year”. In 2013 he produced some of his most successful singles which were “Get Lucky” and “Use Yourself to Dance” with Daft Punk, “Happy” (for an animated movie “Despicable Me”) and the critically received “Blurred Lines” with Robert Thicke.

Pharrell has many different interests, so it came as no surprise when in 2012 he created a record and creative multimedia label “I am OTHER” which included his record label, YouTube channel and apparel. Pharrell’s collaboration with famous clothing and fashion companies such as Nike and Louis Vuitton has also contributed to raising his net worth. Another thing that has contributed to his net worth was his appearance in the seventh season of the television show “The Voice” in which he was one of the coaches in 2014.

In his personal life, William Pharrell is married to the designer and model Helen Lasichanh. They are raising a son named Rocket Williams who was born in 2008. Pharrell is the creator and main funder of the charity “From One Hand To Another” which helps children and youth in problem areas of the United States.

# Trademark
1 Appearing (and performing) on award shows wearing a funky, formless, wide brimmed hat.
2 Often wears clothes from his own range
# Quote
1 David Bowie was a true innovator, a true creative. May he rest in peace.
2 Alber Elbaz is just a genius. He’ll be in a dinner jacket and he doesn’t care what time of day it is: I love that about him. He just marches to the beat of his own drum.
3 I can’t say what I’m going to wear all the time. The minute that I say that, then there’s something in me that tips off and then I need to break out of that.
4 I’m a producer. I’m a musician. And my job is to come in and, you know, put – you know, I treat all of the artists that I work with, like, you know, the way da Vinci was looking at Mona Lisa, you know, there’s an interesting backdrop.
5 Lyrically, I could be so much sharper. Melodically, I could be so much stickier. Musically, I could have so much more texture. So I’m constantly doing that, trying to find new ways to mix things up.
6 Some people say there’s nothing new under the sun. I still think that there’s room to create, you know. And intuition doesn’t necessarily come from under this sun. It comes from within.
7 The more I can make a person comfortable in their environment by taking my ego’s hat off and leaving it at the door, then they can dive deep within themselves and we can pull out something interesting that people have never heard before. It’s the stuff that’s – that no one’s ever heard before is really interesting.
8 The people have allowed me to – they’ve respected my choice of wanting to be like, a little, you know, a baby alchemist, and just trying to mix different cultures together and things that I think are interesting.
9 The simplest way to say it is that I think we’re all dealt these cards in life, but the cards in and of themselves don’t read one way or the other. It’s up to you to home in and cultivate whatever you’ve got in your hand.
10 You don’t know what people are looking for. What you know is what you feel like might be missing. It’s up to the people to agree with you or disagree with you, and you’ll know in their reaction.
11 I love when things are transparent, free and clear of all inhibition and judgment.
12 I’m just very thankful. And I say that a lot because that’s the most important message.
13 I have an all-Japanese design team, and none of them speak English. So it’s often funny and surprising how my ideas end up lost in translation.
14 I think music follows the trends of the collective conscious.
15 I answer questions the best I can.
16 I just do what I do. It’s not something that should be revered as something that’s great.
17 Music is all of a sudden much more colorful.
18 Everything that we experience every day leaves a long-lasting impression.
19 I am overly ambitious, because I realize it can be done.
20 I love everything that Frank Gehry does. I wish I could have that man build me a Wayne Manor-style mansion, like his idea of it.
21 I love playing. The keyboard is my journal.
22 I only entertain very close friends.
23 I wanted clothing that I couldn’t find, so I decided to make it.
24 My ideal travel companions are my family.
25 Living your life 40 floors up, looking out every day on ocean and skies, you see the world from a different point of view. It’s like living in a very interesting fishbowl, but since no one can see up here, it’s like a fishbowl with a limo tint.
26 Fashion is more about feel than science.
27 I don’t know about style mistakes.
28 I don’t know, the artist thing is not me. I love making music, though.
29 I don’t want to end up being a circus act, doing my most famous tricks when I’m 70.
30 I just happen to admire everyone that we work with.
31 I just like being a kid. I enjoy it, I don’t want to grow up.
32 I like anything sweet.
33 I like the world.
34 I love making music, though. I love playing.
35 I love the way Charlize Theron and Kate Moss dress.
36 I love what I do, I love my job.
37 I think all music is a gift from God.
38 My favorite Dominican dish to indulge in is anything with crab.
39 Remember my first tenet in getting dressed is how you feel in the morning. So if you’re not being true blue to that, it usually shows.
40 The keyboard is my journal.
41 Entrepreneur just denotes that you recognize that you’re doing things across disciplines and that you’re blazing your own path.
42 For me, nothing is given.
43 I learn a lot from my experiences and collaborations. Most of my collaborations are meant for me to learn.
44 I like to browse and just hang in bookstores.
45 I’m a fan of music, first and foremost. So I do things from the perspective of a fan.
46 I’m always consciously trying to make what I feel is missing.
47 I’m like a little boy from Virginia. I’m a backpacker. In my head, I’m left of centre. I come from the pool of weirdoes.
48 I’m like most people. We just concentrate on the present. I live right where the film is going through the film projector and it hits the light.
49 Iconic artists are never straight ahead. Michael Jackson loved Elvis and Burt Bacharach, and uniquely blended both of them into what he did.
50 Most of the time, I see what I see, I search my feelings, and then I make my decisions based on my gut – and I don’t always make the right ones.
51 My style hero was Batman. Now it’s Tony Stark.
52 Right now, musically I’m inspired by everyday people.
53 So when I’m playing, I’m sort of painting a feeling in the air.
54 Some of us get a feeling when we hear music and we feel music, and you want to figure out how to continue to feel that.
55 The element of harmony is super important.
56 The sexiest woman musician is Alicia Keys.
57 There’s no better feeling than just going in and just working with someone and what comes out is something that the world knows about.
58 When I’m in the mood for room service, my favorite order is a peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich.
59 When it comes to luggage, I am an underpacker.
60 When you’re dancing, you’re dancing for people to see.
61 When you’re playing, you’re playing something for the world to hear.
62 You can’t get anything done hanging out all day long.
63 You get used to it when you feel like you’re an artist.
64 You sort of have to become what you’re wearing.
65 You treat the air as a canvas and the paint is the chords that come through your fingers, out of the keyboard.
66 There shouldn’t be anything absolute, except physics.
