Product Overview

It would be cliché to say that Pharrell Williams needs no introduction. This Grammy-winning production wizard has been making the soundtrack to your days, nights and everything in between for the past few years. He is not only a master at producing, but also a member of the band N.E.R.D, the CEO of Star Trak Records, the CEO of a new clothing label BBC, CEO of his own sneaker line called Ice Cream and the spokes model for the Louis Vuitton fall campaign. Heralded by the press and the industry as a force to be reckoned with, he releases his solo debut In My Mind. The album highlights a diversified man, featurning 7 rap songs and 7 R&B songs, with guest appearances from Gwen Stefani, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Nelly, Pusha T, Slim Thug, and Snoop Dogg.

As a member of the massively influential recording teams the Neptunes and N.E.R.D., Pharrell Williams slowly made a name for himself in the late 1990s and early 2000s as one of the hottest producers on the scene. IN MY MIND, from 2006, is the artist's first full-length solo album, and it brims with Pharrell's trademark production flourishes and cross-genre sampling.
The overall feel of IN MY MIND falls somewhere between hip-hop and urban contemporary R&B, whether on the spare, electro-funk beats of "Keep It Playa" or the smooth, seductive groove of "Baby." A figure as in-demand as Pharrell can get just about any guest he wants, and the list for IN MY MIND is an impressive one: Slim Thug, Nelly, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, and Gwen Stefani, all of whom were Pharrell clients at one point or another, make appearances. The artist's own vocals and MC skills aren't quite equal to his expertise behind the boards, but the shortcoming is easy enough to forgive, thanks to the album's carefully constructed, dazzling sonic treats.
