As he’s done many times before, with many different sounds and styles, Pharrell Williams really hit his stride in 2013. From work with Daft Punk, Robin Thicke, 2 Chainz, and Nelly, you couldn’t seem to listen to a radio spot (on any station) without hearing The Neptunes’ front-man.

Well, outside of N*E*R*D, Pharrell’s catalog is missing that crown piece. Some Heads are strong advocates for 2006’s In My Mind…, but the LP was dwarfed by some of the work Skateboard P has provided to others, on and off his Star Trak label.

So with March 3rd delivering G I R L, after Pharrell (and his hat) shined so hard on the Grammy stage, with so much support right now, is this his chance?
