Pharrell Named GQ’s “Hitmaker Of The Year”

blame it on Meka November 19, 2013

the same magazine that currently has a love-hate relationship with Kendrick Lamar have also named Skateboard P their “Hitmaker of the Year” in their upcoming December “Men Of The Year” issue, thanks in part to his contributions to Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”, two songs you’ve undoubtedly heard at a party, in a car, on an electronic device, at the supermarket, at the gym, in a parking lot, and so forth.

In fact, for this year’s summer anthem, Pharrell’s only competition was Pharrell. Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” duked it out for the top spot and inspired more wedding dance-floor soul claps than “Brick House” and “Play That Funky Music” combined. P’s take on his tandem of 2013 hits? “Both songs are for people who need a break,” he says. “There’s a lot of fucked-up travesty in the world. Sometimes you just need a Hallmark card. Sometimes you just need to shake your ass.”

Keep it real though: for the rest of us, one of P’s hardest tracks was Pusha T’s “S.N.I.T.C.H.”. Anyways, props to Pharrell.
