Pharrell Williams has revealed that he initially ''dreamed'' of becoming a soul singer but later realised he could write and produce songs as well.
Pharrell Williams wanted to be a soul singer.
He told The Observer newspaper: ''[Soul] was the dream back then. But then I started writing songs, and producing them, and realised I could love that just as much.
''When I was growing up, doing something like this never seemed like a possibility. It wasn't on my wish list. I just figured I'd study my ass off and try to be some kind of art professor.''
The 41-year-old singer puts his successful collaborations down to the fact that he lets the other artist do what they prefer.
He added: ''I say to the artist, whether it be Beyoncé or Usher, what do you want to do?
''And when they tell me, I say, OK, let's do it like this. It's real simple.''
Meanwhile, Pharrell previously revealed that he took inspiration from legendary soul singer, Curtis Mayfield, when making the chart-topping track, 'Happy'.
He said: ''I was pretending to be the masterful Curtis Mayfield.
''I hope he likes it, I'm trying to do what he would've done.''
