My wife on Pharrell Williams: "Someone needs to tell him that he can't sing for shit."

6 years long enough?

He's a good producer when he can be bothered; a so-so rapper and a really terrible singer - but unfortunately he thinks he's fronting the Red Hot Chilli Peppers or something (don't even get me started on them). And this is Not a Good Thing. lol

NERD had their chance to maybe be the most futuristic production/beats group ever, but they decided that mediocre funk-rock was the way to go. They're pretty miserable live; they're coasting musically and relying on Pharell's 'looks' and rep as a babe-magnet to pull an audience. It's like they don't care about how crap they are. Doesn't their management ever show them vids of live shows lol

With you on the Neptunes.

When I first heard the original version of: "In search of" I was blown away by it, and honestly thought 'what the hell is this?'. Other stuff by them from roughly the same era (Kelis's first album) also showed great promise.

Unfortunately, as you say, he instead opted to mould NERD into a pretty unremarkable live act, and proceed to churn out a succession of increasingly insipid 'club-bangers', whist wearing his garish 'Billionaire Boys Club' clothing line.
