ALBUM OF THE WEEK: Pharrell Williams - G I R L
PHARRELL WILLIAMS – G I R L
No doubt you’ve heard his latest hit singles ‘Get Lucky’, ‘Blurred Lines’ and ‘Happy,’ well now its time for a whole album. We are talking of course about musical mastermind Pharrell Williams, and his new 2014 Album ‘Girl.’
Pharrell continues to wow audiences through his unique voice, lyrics and gracious style, and has so over the past 10 years. These days in 2014, he continues to take the world by storm through his musical talents and melodic skills.’Girl’ indeed is an album that can be played for almost all occasions. It is Pharrell’s first solo studio album for over 8 years, and it surely won’t disappoint. Coincidently, it’s the ‘happy’ upbeat tracks with cruisy funk rhythms and artist collaborations (including Justin Timberlake and Alicia Keys) that make the album so easy to listen to and keep you wanting more.
‘Girl’ provides the perfect mix and combination of funk, jazz, hip hop, orchestra and soul and pop all into one album. Sound too crowded? Don’t get too ahead of yourself, the album’s simplicity seems to make a huge impact, allowing songs to link into each other perfectly.
Pharrell, now 41, is and will always remain an icon thanks to his contribution to the music industry, working with some of the biggest names both on and off featured records. Since being headline man for early 2000’s group N.E.R.D. and making too many guest appearances with other artists to keep count of, Pharrell indeed has come along way. This is an album that displays Pharrell’s musical knowledge and innovation, as every one of the 10 tracks seems to be an individual hit single.
