To say I love Pharrell Williams would be an understatement, I am completely enamored with him and have been since I was 12 (I’m currently 27). In honor of his 45th birthday, here are 5 songs that Pharrell wrote for other people. To see my favorite songs from Williams click here.
One of my favorite songs from Britney’s fourth album is Why Should I be Sad. Which is about her divorce from Kevin Federline. Not only did Pharrell write the song, he provided the backing vocals as well.
If you were a fan of B2K then you definitely remember Omarion. One of his first solo hits was Touch. To this day its still a bop thanks to Pharrell.
Before Pharrell went solo he was writing hit after hit for other artists and Usher is of course on that list. U Don’t Have to Call was written and produced by Williams and Chad Hugo.
We all know Ed Sheeran is a singer-songwriter but even he collaborated with Skateboard P. Sheeran and Williams co-wrote 2014’s Sing. The song has pop and r&b sounds thanks Pharrell.
One of the most surprising songs that Pharrell helped write is Alright by Kendrick Lamar. The song from Lamar’s third album was written by the rapper, Williams and Mark Spears. The father of three came up with the beat and hook, “we gon’ be alright” which inspired Kdot to write the rest of the song.

Gavin Rossdale and his former male lover, British pop singer Peter “Marilyn” Robinson.
In his 1995 autobiography Take It Like A Man, Boy George wrote that in the 1980s Rossdale had an affair with the British singer Peter Robinson, a.k.a. Marilyn. Initially Gavin and Marilyn denied the story. Then in 2009, Marilyn confirmed it to InTouch magazine and said they had been “together five years” in the 1980s.
Marilyn also said, “Gavin and Gwen are perfect for each other, but he was the love of my life.” In 2010, Rossdale admitted to Details magazine that it had been an experimentation and “part of growing up”.
In August 2015 after news of Gwen Stefani filing for divorce Marilyn said to Radar Online, “He called our relationship an experimentation, indiscretion of youth. Our experiment went on for five years! If you don’t live in your own truth, whatever it may be, how can you be happy? You’re not at peace with yourself.”
