Pharrell Williams Wins Producer Of The Year At The Grammy Awards
During tonight’s 61st Grammy Awards, Pharrell Williams won the award in the “Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical” category. Skateboard P accepts the award over artists Boi-1da, Kanye West, Larry Klein, and Linda Perry. The Neptunes and N*E*R*D member previously won “Producer Of The Year” six years ago, in 2013. Pharrell has been nominated 38 times and won 11 total Grammy Awards throughout his heralded career.
P’s victory in this category comes off of a stellar campaign in 2018. Last year, Williams was credited with work on a majority of tracks from Justin Timberlake’s Man Of The Woods, Ariana Grande’s Sweetener, and N*E*R*D’s fifth studio album, No One Ever Really Dies, a title which doubles as the acronym for the group’s namesake.
Pharrell also produced Beyoncé & JAY-Z’s “APESH*T” and “NICE” from the couple’s collaborative album, Everything Is Love, Travis Scott’s single, “Skeletons” from Scott’s Grammy-nominated Astroworld, Migos’ hit single “Stir Fry,” and Quavo’s “Go All The Way” from the Migos affiliate’s debut album, Quavo Huncho.
Pharrell’s Grammy nominations and wins are just a small sample size of the 45-year-old’s award-winning run. The Virginia born, I Am Other curator has won two Grammy’s as a part of his work with Chad Hugo and The Neptunes. Williams’ has also taken home trophies at the Grammy’s for his work on Justin Timberlake’s 2004 debut album, Justified, 2007’s “Best Rap Song” category for “Money Maker,” Daft Punk’s 2013 “Album Of The Year”, Random Access Memories, 2014’s “Record Of The Year” with “Get Lucky,” and 2016’s “Best Rap Song” on Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright.”
