The rapper claims he's rubbish at singing too
Pharrell Williams has claimed that despite his worldwide success with N.E.R.D and The Neptunes, he can’t sing.
“I don’t really think I can sing,” he explained. “I don’t really think I can rhyme. I’m just expressing myself.”
Talking to Complex magazine, Pharrell said: “I’m just saying whatever comes out of my mind, whatever comes out of my mouth. It’s more like a diary. I’m at another point of my life where I’m trying to practice being non-judgmental and being pro-art.”
Pharrell, who releases his solo single ‘Can I Have It Like That’ featuring Gwen Stefani on October 31, has also explained the meaning behind his debut solo record ‘In My Mind’.
Denying that he is a sex symbol, Pharrell said: “That’s not my character. I’m pretending that I’m sexy. It’s all in my mind. That’s why it was perfect for my album title. I figured I would do something a little more reflective of how I think, and the best thing was ‘In My Mind’ because in my mind I’m all these things – I’m good, I’m bad, I’m holy, I’m horny.”
‘In My Mind’ hits the shops on November 15, and features seven hip-hop tracks and seven R&B songs. The second single to be lifted from the record will be ‘Angel’ on November 21.
