Pharrell recently sat down with Jason King, a professor of Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music for an in-depth conversation to discuss the highlights in his 20-year career. He shares that Kelis’ “Milkshake,” Nelly’s “Hot in Herre,” Snoop Dogg’s “Drop it Like It’s Hot” and Clipse’s “Grindin” were some of the greatest hits in his catalog. He claims that he is the “Mr. Magoo of music,” how Brazilian women inspired “Milkshake,” how he got fired from McDonald’s at one point, and why every girl he’s dated was required to love A Tribe Called Quest’s Bonita Applebum. Watch the interview via NPR.
