Pharrell Explains His ‘G I R L’ Album Title: ‘[Women] Have The Power’


Pharrell wants you to know that without women, there is nothing. This is the running theme in his newly announced forthcoming solo album G I R L, which drops March 3. Backstage at this year’s BRIT Awards, BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe caught up with Skateboard P and found out the true meaning behind his album title.

“Women have been so good to me over this entire career and they’ve done so much for my family,” he told Zane. “Everything I’ve ever gotten is because they’ve paid for so they’re like my bosses—indirectly and directly. You guys are like my bosses. So for me, I wanted to analyze that for a second.”

“I admire women in a lot of ways, but I needed to make sure that everyone knew that like, Yeah, OK, cool,” Pharrell continued, “On the surface, I do look and I do like them and I appreciate them in my little dirty ways here and there, but at the core, is what I’m telling you. We need them. Every living breathing human being on this planet regardless to your sexual orientation benefits from two things from a woman: the agreement to enter the act and the agreement to have you. So they have the power. Every human being has come through those silver-lined doors.”

Truth! He also went as far to say that he believes G I R L is his best work yet. Watch the interview above.
