Pharrell Williams has dominated 2013. So needless to say, it makes sense why Complex would decide to give the producer/rapper/singer/overall dope artist its “Best of 2013 Month” digital cover. The folks at Complex gave us a similar style interview with Danny Brown a few months ago, and both of these stories are notable in that the visual aspects and graphic design layouts are extremely eye-catching. These next-level technological illustrations are a nice touch, but the content in the interview is what matters most and Pharrell gave us some interesting insights.

The maker behind hits such as Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” described how special the year 2013 was to him, as both of those songs occupied the #1/#2 spots simultaneously on the Billboard charts. Between being a master of music, fashion, and art, it is hard to believe that 40 year old is still ahead of his time. His creative genius is something special and he is able to articulate his thoughts regarding what inspires his work extremely well.

Between the philosophizing and reminiscing, the biggest news from the interview was the announcement that Pharrell plans on releasing a solo album in 2014! He specifically mentioned he will not be rapping on the project, so we expect a heavy dose of production from Pharrell as well as singing on hooks with what is sure to be a great compilation of artists.  Pharrell has supplied input and worked with the most talented people in hip-hop, pop, and R&B music…and it only makes sense to honor him for his contributions both in the past and presently.
