Pharrell's actually been featured on here before, but not yet as a solo artist. That just goes to show you how much he gets around as a collaborator. I wouldn't call myself a fan of his music, but I have to give him credit in that he'll work with pretty much anybody. That kind of impetuousness is probably what a lot of artists need these days so that we can see them take some more musical risks and avoid artistic stagnation. However, even though every one of his ventures hasn't been a huge musical feat, he's still put out some pretty good stuff. It worked for Babe Ruth, after all, he swung at almost everything and all anybody remembers are the home runs (I have to be careful here, John's a Yankees fan). Anyway, regardless of the ratio of Pharrell's hits to misses, I think this song is one of is better endeavors and it may have established him as a solo artist.

What are you listening to tonight?
