A unique project that reflects its creator's self-professed practice of universalism and individualism,In My Mind comprises seven R&B tracks and seven hip-hop tracks. The integral nature of the songs "is meant to evoke emotion and evoke debate and evoke dialogue," says Pharrell, "to get people talking and realizing, 'Wow, I could be me. He just did it with R&B and hip-hop - I could do it with politics and religion, I could do it with science and social studies, I could do it with clothing and food, I could be an artist and be an equestrian, there's just so many things you could do."
With the release of In My Mind, Pharrell Williams finally gets a chance to put his personal musical philosophy on the front line. "My thing is good music is good music," he says. "You bring me one person who's a major super rock head who doesn't know Puffy's song 'It's All About the Benjamins' or 50 Cent's 'In the Club.' Or you bring me a major hip-hop head who doesn't know 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' or 'Jeremy.' Or you name somebody who loves R&B who doesn't know Dolly Parton's 'Workin' 9 To 5' or 'The Dukes Of Hazard' theme song - they know these songs because these songs transcended beyond their own genre and just established themselves as great timepieces. That's what music is supposed to be, the soundtrack of your life."
