Pharrell headlines Shaggfest
Pharrell Williams is a superstar. If you don't believe us, you must have missed any evidence of the reaction he got while headlining the 3rd annual Z104 Shaggfest on June 14, 2014.
Yes, Williams came home as a chart-topping hit-maker who just happened to be in the headlining slot at the local radio station's big outdoor bash. Yes, he was the biggest name on the bill after joining unsigned acts from Virginia, Rico Love, Mac Wilds, No Malice, Sean Paul and August Alsina. And yes, it was clear from the get-go who fans really came to see.
Was there any doubt Pharrell would put on a history-making performance on the Shaggfest stage? Not from the folks in attendance. Dressed in a track jacket, jeans and a Vivianne Westwood hat, he kicked off his set with "Come Get It Bae," featuring Miley Cyrus. Later he went into throwback mode with "Frontin'," and the highlight of the night came with a reunion of the band N.E.R.D. From start to finish, the fans never stopped dancing.
These are the nights when the crowd knows they're going to get a high-energy performance from Pharrell. The kind of concert where he won't miss a note, where the stage will be rocking and the crowd will be hyped from the first song to the last. In this case, he closed out with a dedication performance of his No. 1 hit "Happy," and though no encore followed, the fans leaving Shaggfest certainly went home happy.
About Pharrell Williams
Pharell Williams isn't just credited with changing the face of pop music over the last decade, he has simply become one of its brightest stars. A singer, songwriter, producer and fashion designer, the man simply known as Pharrell has ridden quite the upward trajectory ever since penning a verse to Wreckx-n-Effect's "Rump Shaker" back in 1992.
Fast forward more than two decades, and it's Pharrell himself who has many fans Rump Shakin' to his own brand of music. The last ten years especially have been a beehive of activity for the artist, who was responsible for much of the music for the hugely popular animated films "Despicable Me" and "Despicable Me 2." The latter was anchored by Pharrell's song "Happy," for which he conceived a 24-hour music video.
The last year, in particular, has been extremely memorable for Pharrell, who garnered seven nominations at the 2014 Grammy Awards. "Get Lucky," which he co-wroted and fronted for Daft Punk's number one album, won Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and most notably, Williams won the award for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical.
When he wasn't busy collecting hardware, Pharrell was also busy recording and releasing his second album, G I R L, which dropped on March 3, 2014. A few weeks later, he was announced as a new coach for season 7 of NBC's "The Voice," replacing Cee Lo Green. Finally, Pharrell played musical guest on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" alongside "Pitch Perfect" actress Anna Kendrick on April 5.
