Pharrell Williams has spoken about the comparisons between himself and the lateMichael Jackson in a new interview for Daft Punk, Pharrell explained: "I was like uh-oh. They just did 'Tron', which was amazing. The music on there was just like so next level to me. It was wow.
"So then I was like whatever ya'll are working on, I'll just come and play tambourine on it… They played [Get Lucky] and I just listened to it and said, wow, this sh*t feels like a loop of hope.
"It felt like an isolated moment that is just on repeat… The song is almost like a pheromone in a Petri dish."
Reflecting on his childhood, Pharrell exclaimed: "I'm a backpacker. In my head I'm left of centre. I come from the pool of weirdoes. The kids who embraced their differences to help them realise that they were special."
