I know it's been a minute and a half since I've updated this shit, but I've been busy.
I'm looking forward to Pharrell's album for three reasons.
2. I enjoy Pharrell's music
3. He's been on some different shit lately. I think the problem with Clones was that it was too one dimensional. P (and Chad) had found that little space funk niche and tried to get away with it for a whole album. The same snares and guitars wore out their welcome and the album never reached the status it could have. I mean, Luda, Jay, Clipse, Jada etc. all on an album that is usually ignored. So if In My Mind does turn out to be Mr. Williams rehashing the same formula (a new formula, mind you, the man is not Swizz Beatz) that tires after four or five listens I'll be disappointed.
Pharrell has released three singles as of yet. Can I Have It Like That saw him doing his best Diddy impression - shitty lines (Nelly Furtado?), hot lines (Stephen Hawking) and explosions in the video - yet the song grows on one and became minimally annoying (although not quite enjoyable). He gave us Angel, his piano bounce ballad about girls with asses like loaves of bread, and now Mamacita. P lets the pianos slide through this one, ignores Daddy Yankee's pointless appearance and brings back his flow. None of these songs are particular standouts - I can't envision myself playing any of them six months from now, and Angel in particular doesn't hold up to the test of time. Yet I'm pleased to hear him come from three completely different directions, the only consistency is the keys on Angel and Mamacita. An album with completely different sounds is all I'm asking for.Pharrell Williams feat. Daddy Yankee - Mamacita
