Radio 1 spoke with N.E.R.D.’s Pharrell Williams who says it’s important to have a message, and they’ll deliver one on their next UK double A side coming out at the end of February, with ‘Lapdance’ — which compares American politics to table dancing — on one side and ‘Provider’ — about a man who has to sell drugs to keep his family together — on the other. “I’d rather share my wealth, and to me wealth is not placed in a piece of paper, it’s inside you… so you’ve gotta offer that to the world,” Williams said. “I think that as long as I am rich, I owe it to the world for the rest of my life to just let people know and let the kids definitely know. It’s not about money it’s about being happy… smiling is for free.”
