The music industry is a funny old game and we have seen a lot of different characters coming and going over the years but, while there have been plenty of novelty acts along the way, there are others who have discovered the key to longevity. It is not easy to have a long and successful music career and it is harder still to have regular and constant commercial success in the music industry.
It is rather interesting then, to learn that there are a number of music acts around the world who actually claim that they are not interested in getting commercial success. One person who has dismissed these claims by these acts is Pharrell, who has stated that he can not understand how any music act would not want their music to reach as many people as possible.
Pharrell explained, "For me, it's not all about me or to be a star with a certain image. It's about being a part of something bigger and you can't control that. It does not matter how talented you are - if nobody reacts to your product you are just a guy with a demo tape or a few design drafts. I want to connect people. Success means being supported by others. I just try to find my purpose as a part of the big mosaic the universe arranged."
Pharrell has enjoyed a very long and success career in the music industry and is an artist that we expect to be around for many years to come, as he seems to be able to effortless adapt his music to the times and the changes. As well as that, Pharrell has had a number of successful collaborations along the way, working with the likes of Madonna, Robin Thicke, and Daft Punk. Keep up the good work sir!
