The ‘Happy‘ hitmaker has revealed his only child, Rocket Williams – who is now four – looks set to follow in his musical footsteps because he can already play keys, much to the 41-year-old star’s surprise. He said: ”He plays keys, it’s amazing. I didn’t start playing piano until I was like in my twenties because I was a classically trained drummer, [my son] was playing keys at like three!”
Pharrell admits he really misses Rocket and the youngster’s mother, his wife Helen Lasichanh, when he is on tour but thanks God that video call application FaceTime has been invented so he can see his family while speaking to them from overseas. While he misses his wife and son when he is playing gigs abroad, the singer admits he enjoys performing to crowds and thinks of it as more of a treat for himself rather than the audience.
Speaking on ITV’s ‘Good Morning Britain’, he added: ”I’m performing but I kind of feel like I’m the one enjoying the show because they’re all there making me feel amazing. ”My band is there to support me, the dancers, the bass, I feel like I’m the one that’s getting a treat because it’s like ‘man y’all don’t have to show up here for me!”’
‘Brown Sugar‘ Director Teams Up With Forest Whitaker And Pharrell For Dramedy ‘Dope‘. The man who brought us the romantic comedy favorites The Wood and Brown Sugar has partnered with Forest Whitaker and Pharrell for a drama called Dope. Writer and director Rick Famuyiwa’s Dope is centered around Malcolm, a geek living in the crime-ridden, drug-infested neighborhood of Inglewood.
Malcolm becomes a victim of his circumstances when he’s caught in the crossfires of a drug deal gone bad. Using his street smarts and wit, he figures out a way to use the ordeal in his favor. Both Whitaker and Pharrell are among the producers for the film, which set to start production this summer in Los Angeles.
Whitaker will produce for his company Whitaker Significant Productions with his partner Nina Bongiovi, alongside Pharrell and Juntobox Films. Famuyiwa will serve as writer and director of the project. The Academy Award-winning actor recently produced Fruitvale Station and Repentance. No casting announcements have been made. Thanks to HISE.
The ubiquitous feelgood hit from the hat-fixated R&B star overtakes Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines – which he also produced. After taking over pop radio, wedding dancefloors, school discos and everywhere in between, Pharrell Williams’ mega-hit Happy has become the Most Downloaded Track Ever in the UK. He overtakes Robin Thicke and his equally ubiquitous Blurred Lines, which Williams also produced.
While his collaboration with Daft Punk, Get Lucky, moves down to sixth-most downloaded. All Three Tracks sold over a million copies within a year, a feat only The Beatles have matched. “I would just like to say thank you, first and foremost, to the people, because the charts are determined by them,” Williams said. “The people of the UK have been so supportive of me over the years… That’s the lifeline, without them you’re just a musician with a couple of ideas but with them, that is the thing that changes everything when they get involved, your little idea can become something.”
Places three, four and five are now occupied by Adele, Maroon 5 and Gotye respectively, with Black Eyed Peas, Avicii, Rihanna and Kings Of Leon also in the top ten. It comes in the week that another chart milestone was breached: Calvin Harris, recently named the highest-earning DJ in the world with $66m last year, has become the first British solo artist to earn a billion streams on Spotify. With big stars like Adele opting out of the service, the way was clear for Harris, whose solo tracks and collaborations with the likes of Rihanna (the ninth most downloaded track ever) have generated £4m paid out in royalties from Spotify. His most popular track is EDM smash Summer, with 160m streams.
By Rhian Jones. Pharrell Williams will part ways with his performing rights organisation ASCAP to join the new boutique company formed by Irving Azoff and Randy Grimmett Global Music Rights from October 1, according to reports. Operating under the name of Azoff MSG Entertainment, the venture also has Ryan Tedder on board – who is managed, along with Williams, by Ron Laffitte of Front Line/Artist Nation.
Williams‘ single Happy hit No.1 worldwide last year and has since been certified 3x Platinum. He also had big success with co-writes on Daft Punk’s No.1 track Get Lucky and the No.1 single Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke in 2013. Global Music Rights will reportedly represent 30 to 60 writers, most of which will be managed by Azoff.
Pharrell gave a Swedish feminist party a shout-out during a performance in Stockholm a day before Sweden’s general election. At the end of his show Saturday, Pharrrell invited on stage Gudrun Schyman, the leader of a small party that’s campaigning on women’s rights. An online video clip showed Pharrell and the 66-year-old Schyman dancing hand in hand as he performed “Happy.”
Schyman left the ex-communist Left Party in 2003 to found Feminist Initiative. The party won a seat in the European Parliament earlier this year and polls suggest it could get the 4 percent support that’s needed in Sunday’s election to enter parliament. Feminists have criticized Pharrell for producing the song Blurred Lines, which they say promotes rape culture, but he has recently spoken out in favor of women’s rights.

Michael Etheridge began his career in the music in Virginia Beach Virginia as a member of the Neptune’s with Chad Hugo, Pharrell Williams and Sheldon Haley. The group attended Princess Ann High School together. Teddy Riley opened a studio next to the Princess Ann High. The guys would knock on the studio door after school just looking for a shot to be heard by the legendary producer. Eventually they got a shot at a talent show sponsored by Riley.
It was then they began to create music and start a journey that would lead to many opportunities. Mike was the singer in the group and Riley took an interest in signing him as a solo artist. Pharrell and Chad went on to become one of the biggest names in music history. Mike stayed with Riley and landed a deal with his then label Lil’ Man/Interscope Records and a publishing deal with Warner Chapel Music Group. He also wrote for the 7 time platinum selling group Black Street.
During this time Mike released a single called “Masterplan” after Capitol Records picked up his album when Lil’ Man Records was released from Interscope. It was then that Mike had an encounter with God. At this point Mike began to shift his focus. After having moderate success with his solo career he was at a crossroad. God began to show him his purpose and that his gifts and talents would be used for the kingdom of God. After a long hiatus of soul searching and self evaluation Mike is back with a new movement called Generation Next.
He is now producing and writing as well as singing with a brand new sound for the Kingdom of God. Most recently he produced a song called “Still Got Love” for No Malice formally known as Malice of the Clipse. Who has taken the world by storm with his debut album as No Malice called Hear Ye Him. And Now he’s back with the inspirational single “Faithful” which will be released on September 16th, with an album to follow in 2015. After years of searching Mike has found that your time may be delayed but not denied. He is sure to make a mark in the music world with his gift as he shares through music!!!
