Pharrell Williams: It Took Me a Minute to Find My Purpose in Music

Pharrell Williams steps out in a bright pink coat and his signature hat to do some shopping on Monday (September 1) in London, England.

The 41-year-old musician opened up to the Wall Street Journal about finding his style of music.

“It took me a minute to find my purpose,” Pharrell said. “I knew something was missing, and then I realized, OK, you’re able to make music; now you have to inject purpose. I want to make music with something extra to it—a holistic property. I want to make it feel good. I’m not the only one doing this. Kendrick Lamar‘s music feels amazing. Adele‘s music feels amazing. Alicia [Keys]‘s new album feels amazing. The distinction between sounding amazing and feeling amazing—that’s the thing. People, I think, are looking for a feeling.”
