With over 100 million copies of his productions sold, his music sounds like something no one else has thought of just yet. He's also created a new way of looking at established stars like SnoopDogg, Madonna, and even the Rolling Stones. Over four albums, Williams and Hugo along with Shae Haley created an unpredictable hybrid as part of the alt-rock/hip-hop group N.E.R.D. His prolific body of work also ranges from designing a sculpture with Tokyo-born artist Takashi Murakami to accessories and jewelry for luxury goods brands Louis Vuittonand Moncler. Now, with his latest venture i am OTHER a multi-media creative collective that serves as an umbrella for all his endeavors, including Billionaire Boys Club & ICECREAM apparel, textile company Bionic Yarn and dedicated YouTube channel Williams' vision continues to push pop culture forward.
G I R L is Pharrell's highly anticipated new album, and features the hit single, "Happy", an international phenomenon and radio smash. "Happy" was first featured on Despicable Me 2 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). It is nominated for an OSCAR this year for Best Original Song, and Pharrell will perform "Happy" on the OSCARs on March 2nd, on ABC.
"Happy" has sold more than 2.3 million tracks worldwide, and has topped the chart in more than 175 countries. Currently in the US, the song generates over 120 million weekly audience impressions across 6 radio formats - Top 40, Rhythm, Hot AC, Urban, Urban AC, and AAA. "Happy" has also just been certified Platinum.
In addItion to the excitement of Pharrell's new album, he just took home four Grammy Awards, including including Producer of the Year, Album of the Year for Daft Punk s Random Access Memories, and Record of the Year as well as Best Pop Duo/Performance for Daft Punk's "Get Lucky".

Musically, the sound is very similar to what Pharrell has been known for as part of his production team, The Neptunes although the sound is sonically richer and seems to incorporate more live instrumentation. None of the songs are too long and the 10 track playlist emphasizes Pharrell choosing Quality over Quantity this time around. Nearly every song has radio-friendly Top-40 potential.
Here's my track by track review...
"Marilyn Monroe": 4 out of 5 stars
"Brand New": 5 out of 5 stars (JT really should've collaborated with Pharrell for his 20/20 albums)
"Hunter": 2 out of 5 stars (My least favorite song. Pharrell's falsetto just sounds intolerable here)
"Gush": 4 out of 5 stars
"Happy": 5 out of 5 stars
"Come Get It Bae": 3 out of 5 stars
"Gust of Wind": 5 out of 5 stars (Really stands out. Daft Punk and Pharrell are magical in their collaborations)
"Lost Queen": 5 out of 5 stars
"Freq": 5 out of 5 stars (hidden track at the end of Lost Queen. Very beautiful song)
"Know Who You Are": 5 out of 5 stars
"It Girl": 4 out of 5 stars (Nice closing track. Reminds me of N.E.R.D)
After scoring the soundtrack to the animated film "Despicable Me", Williams found himself on three of the biggest hits of 2013. The first of which was Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines", followed by his appearance on Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" and his song "Happy". The Daft Punk connection led to Williams being offered a recording contract with Columbia to record his sophomore effort "G I R L" . This time around, Williams eschews rapping for singing but has noticeably toned down the sexual content. Opening the album is the catchy "Marilyn Monroe", where he looks for a woman with less style and more substance.Read more ›
Definitely would recommend if you're in the mood for a feel good album full of up beat vocals and ACTUAL REAL musical instruments (not any of that pop stuff). Standout tracks include "brand new" which is a duet with Justin Timberlake, "Gust of wind" featuring Daft Punk and "it girl".
Pretty good and well put together album.
You go boy, proud of you!
The album is a great buy! I don't know what these other reviews are on....

I was wondering the same thing, sometimes record labels (like Columbia/Sony) do releasse the vinyl version but months later than the initial cd release. Who knows?? Yes, "Happy" has been released as a vinyl single.
