Pharrell Williams: I owe everything to fans

Pharrell Williams insists being number one in the charts had nothing to do with him and he owes his success to his fans.

The 'Happy' singer, whose track hit the top spot, has thanked those who have supported him throughout his career and after the release of his solo material, including his new album 'G I R L'.

Pharrell, who graces the front cover of Notion magazine this month, told the publication: ''It's nice to be number one but that's not my doing.

''You can get so much more done by giving people respect. The people did this. Everything that I own my fans paid for.''

When asked how he measures the success of his music, Pharrell claimed: ''It's the way it feels to me and I stay loyal to that.

''I'm happy that the people can see that I'm staying loyal to that because they don't have to support me, but they do.''

Pharrell admits he used to always over think his own music and found it ''weird'' having to draw from his own experiences.

He added: ''What's made me feel comfortable about making an album is because it's not about me. It's about girl. I feel comfortable singing it and making it and performing it.''
